We Will Follow Our Flag (a lyrical song)

Updated on July 21, 2016
Home of the brave...
Home of the brave...

Born of the revolution, to become the symbol of the ages, always flying so high,

On every pole in every square, fluttering in the wind so fair, our great flag to fly.

Leading our brave soldiers into war, as our fiercest pride, forever to go before,

Brings fear to our enemy, the stars and stripes, the first, on every foreign shore.


Refrain:

We will always follow our American flag, in the home of the red, white and blue,

United we shall stand, all across this greatest land, in our United States, so true.


Land of the free...
Land of the free...


From our country's coasts to ever widening plains, our flag of freedom reigns,

Over grandest mountains down to every precious shore, our strength remains.

Its emblem does prevail, representing every man, woman and child, all to hail,

The people look to bluest skies, where the grandest symbol flies, never to fail.

Refrain:

We will always honor our American flag, in the home of the red, white and blue,

United we shall stand, all across this greatest land, in our United states, so true.



Our flag flies high over this great land...
Our flag flies high over this great land...


Our flag stands before us, always a reminder to us of freedom's greatest cost,

As those who've gone before, on every hostile shore, and many lives were lost.

Where many men have died, our flag by their side, in honoring those to fall,

We'll protect innocents in this world, as tyranny's hatred is hurled, defending all.


Refrain:

We will always honor our American flag, in the home of the red, white, and blue,

United we shall stand, all across this greatest land, in our United states, so true.


Our United states so true...
Our United states so true...


May our god bless America, to keep us safe, and help us all overcome,

Brave this world, with our stars and stripes unfurled, let us beat the drum.

The nation's people may all attest, that we're all a step ahead of the rest,

Our flag above all to fly, none's freedom does deny, we have been blessed.

Refrain:

We will always honor our American flag, in the home of the red, white, and blue,

United we shall stand, all across this greatest land, in our united states, so true.

We shall follow our flag, the red, white, and blue.

      I came back just to recite the poem. Too many people these days are not standing up for the symbol of our freedom.

      The American flag flies tall and true right outside the office building in which I work. I'm proud that the management company here respects our flag and considers it an integral part of the property.

      Way cool Ann. Why not love our heritage and symbols? My several trips to England really make me happy in our joint beginnings. I just love the Queen who stands for your flag. Way cool cousins.

      I too am patriotic to a red, white and blue - the British one - but even more so to the red and white flag of England and St George! Patriotism is a good thing, wherever we live, and we should celebrate it more often (the English are not very good at that), so well done!

      Whonu, we have on our refrigerator the Pledge of Allegiance and flags throughout the house. My wife, an immigrant and my 1st grade son and I say the pledge often.

      We are so darned proud of it.

      Thanks for bringing that love to life.
