38 "Ragged Old Flag"
Take pride in our flag
I would like to stick this song in Mr. Obama's ear and make him listen to it over and over.
I was listening to some classic country music, as I often do because I am a sentimental old fool, and they played this song. The first thing I thought of was, “Our very own president needs to listen to this.” “Maybe he would understand why “us” Americans are so strong about “our” flag and National Anthem the way it is and why we “never” want it changed.
I downloaded the lyrics but they won't let me publish them because they say it is a duplicate. So, here is the web site where you can go listen to Johnny Cash say, not sing, these words. A lot of people may “not” like Johnny Cash, but he was a true American and respected “our” country. I did however post a couple of quotes from the song. Hopefully, this is edited enough to allow it to be published.
I know I can't listen to the song without my chest booming with pride for our country and our flag. I know there are probably a lot of people out there that have never heard the song, some because they aren't country music fans and some because they are just too young to have ever heard it. It is hardly ever played on the radio, for whatever reasons, maybe because it mentions God, but I feel it should be played a lot more. As should other patriotic songs. In the state our country is in, everyone should be more patriotic, maybe more like they were after 9/11, but without the tragedy.
I just hope this gets published now with the revision.
I hope you enjoy this. Greg

That Ragged Old Flag."
On second thought
I *do* like to brag
Cause I'm mighty proud of
That Ragged Old Flag"
