Banner Born of Freedom

I could hear her popping in the wind
As overhead she flew
This banner born of freedom
The old Red White and Blue

As I stood and watched her waving
From that flagpole high above
I thought of those who died
To make free, this land we love

Lets us not forget the price was paid
To bring freedom to this land
For this flag’s no more than fabric
Set apart from which it stands

So here’s to you Old Glory
May you up there always be
May your Stars and Stripes forever wave
Above this land so proud and free.
