Her red stripes a symbol
of the many who fought to keep us free
from the time our nation was born
she would represent our liberty.

a beacon for many who are oppressed
as they continue to seek shelter
in this great land of the blessed.
Blue represents preservation,
truth and justice for all
for freedom and basic human rights
in a nation where every man stands tall.
She's the flag of America
born of freedom by blood
today we salute you Old Glory,
as you proudly fly high...
all over the land that we love.
