Please Pray for Israel and our Christian Nation USA!!
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom He hath chosen for His own inheritance.” ( Psalms 33:12 KJV )!!
I walked through a county courthouse square On a park bench an old man was sitting there I said, “Your old courthouse is kinda run down”
He said, “No, it’ll do for our little town” I said, “Your old flagpole has leaned a little bit And that’s a Ragged Old Flag you got hanging on it”
He said, “Have a seat, ” and I sat down “Is this the first time you’ve been to our little town?” I said, “I think it is” He said, “I don’t like to brag But we’re kinda proud of that Ragged Old Flag
You see, we got a little hole in that flag there when Washington took it across the Delaware And it got powder-burned the night Francis Scott Key Sat watching it, writing ‘Say Can You See’
And it got a bad rip in New Orleans With Packingham and Jackson tuggin’ at its seams And it almost fell at the Alamo Beside the Texas flag, but she waved on though
She got cut with a sword at Chancellorsville And she got cut again at Shiloh Hill There was Robert E. Lee, Beauregard, and Bragg And the south wind blew hard on that Ragged Old Flag
On Flanders Field in World War I She got a big hole from a Bertha gun She turned blood red in World War II She hung limp and low by the time it was through
She was in Korea and Vietnam She went where she was sent by her Uncle Sam She waved from our ships upon the briny foam And now they’ve about quit waving her back here at home
In her own good land here she’s been abused She’s been burned, dishonored, denied, and refused And the government for which she stands Is scandalized throughout the land
And she’s getting threadbare and she’s wearing thin But she’s in good shape for the shape she’s in ‘Cause she’s been through the fire before And I believe she can take a whole lot more
So we raise her up every morning, we take her down every night We don’t let her touch the ground and we fold her up right On second thought, I do like to brag ‘Cause I’m mighty proud of the Ragged Old Flag!!
