Lyrics

There's a feeling come a stealing
And it sets my brain a reeling,
When I'm list'ning to the music
Of a military band.
Any tune like "Yankee Doodle"
Simply sets me off my noodle,
It's that patriotic something
That no one can understand.
"Way down South in the land of cotton,"
Melody untiring,
Ain't that inspiring!
Hurrah! Hurrah!
We'll join the jubilee,
And that's going some
For the Yankees, by gum!
Red, White and Blue,
I am for you,
Honest you're a grand old flag.
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
Under Red, White and Blue,
Where there's never a boast or brag;
But should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.

I'm a cranky hanky panky,
I'm a dead square honest Yankee,
And I'm mighty proud of that old flag
That flies for Uncle Sam.
Though I don't believe in raving,
Ev'ry time I see it waving,
There's a chill runs up my back
That makes me glad I'm what I am.
Here's a land with a million soldiers,
That's if we should need 'em,
We'll fight for freedom!
Hurrah! Hurrah!
For ev'ry Yankee Tar
And old G. A. R.
Ev'ry stripe, ev'ry star,
Red, White and Blue,
Hats off to you,
Honest, you're a grand old flag.
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
Under Red, White and Blue,
Where there's never a boast or brag;
But should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.

Information About You're a Grand Old Flag

"You're a Grand Old Flag" is a patriotic tribute to the flag of the United States. The song (and music) were written by George M. Cohan in 1906.

Originally entitled "You're a Grand Old Rag" after an encounter George M. Cohan had with a Civil War veteran who had fought at Gettysburg and referred to the flag he was holding as "she's a grand old rag". The song title was later changed to the more fitting title "You're a Grand Old Flag.

A short version that also appreciates the grand old flag

Its a grand old flag,
Its a high flying flag
Its the emblem for me and for you,
Its the emblem of, the team we love,
The team of the red and blue,
Every heart beats true
For the red and the blue
And we sing this song to you,
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye an the red and the blue.
