Happy Flag Day



So how many of y'all knew that Flag Day was a holiday?  Me neither, until I moved to New England.  In my corner of the country, it's totally a big deal.  Parades all weekend actually.  We wave the red, white and blue proudly in these parts!  At least...we do on Flag Day anyway. 


You're a grand old flag,
You're a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You're the emblem of
The land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.
Ev'ry heart beats true
'neath the Red, White and Blue,
Where there's never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.
