Stars and Stripes

Those fading stars
The forgotten stripes
That has held a country so dear
Who will bring it back
Back to me
Who cared for it so long
Through the first shots
That bought her freedom
To the cannon shots started our civil war
I was there
There to bring back my country
I was held over the shining sea
During the world wars
And it is my duty to stand strong
For I will fly over the land of the free victorious
And what trials may befall this country
I will always be there to watch and protect it
Through snow, lightning, and rain I will always be there
For I am the stars and stripes forever
