Lyrics of Ragged Old Flag

I walked through a county courthouse square
On a park bench an old man was sittin' there
I said your old court house is kinda run down
He said naw it'll do for our little town
I said your old flag pole is leaned a little bit
And that's a ragged old flag you got hangin' 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 that Francis Scott Key
Sat watching it writing say can you see?
And it got a bad rip in New Orleans
With Pakenham and Jackson tugging 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 and Beauregard and Bragg
And the south wind blew hard on that ragged old flag
On Flanders Field in
World War one
She got a big hole from a Bertha Gun
She turned blood red in World War two
She hung limp and low a time or two
She was in Korea 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 wavin' back here at home
In her own good land here she's been abused
She's been burned dishonored denied an' refused
And the government for which she stands
Has been scandalized throughout the land
And she's getting thread bare and she's wearin' thin
But she's in good shape for the shape she's in
'Cos 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
'Cos I'm mighty proud of that ragged old flag
