Old Glory, We're So Proud of You


You look so proud in your valor colors flowing in the wind.
Where your courage never bends,
Through America’s growth you’ve met so many new friends.
You were always there for your country.
You always saw the enemy coming.
You never surrendered.
You will always be remembered.
For the strong courage that you symbolized,
And the America that you civilized,
Creating a new country under God that was dignified.
Old Glory, we pray you never tire.
Nor retire!
We salute you!
Old Glory, we’re so proud of you!

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
