A Friend of Mine

 

Old Glory is a friend of mine

Iíve seen her fly

Come rain or shine

She gets her strength

From the Lord Devine

Who also is a Friend of mine.

 

Iíve seen her ripped

and torn to tatters

By people who think

they know what matters

If only they knew

her from my view

Oh we could tell them All

a thing or two.

 

The sight of her

brings hope to billions

Protects the rights

of misled hellions

She led the way

in our great rebellion

Preserved our country

And upheld the union

 

Iíve risked my life

to uphold her creed

Iíd do it again

To help her succeed

Her goal is to see

all men freed

And help those people

who are in need.

 

So if you see her

coming down the street

Pay some respect

and get on your feet

She ignites a passion

in my heart beat

She takes the lead

She doesnít retreat

 

Old Glory is a friend of mine

Iíve seen her fly

Come rain or shine

She gets her strength

From the Lord Devine

Who also is a Friend of mine.
