GOD BLESS THE U.S.A.

THANK GOD FOR THE RED WHITE BLUE—-AND GRAY!

A SALUTE TO AMERICA –RED, WHITE BLUE—- AND GRAY!

Welcome to Patriotism 101

We're glad you came today;

Before you dismiss us graying seniors

Here'sa word on the Red,White Blue and Gray.

Although we may be a bit gray headed

And prefer driving in the slower land

We still get to where we're going

And Old Glory's honor is still our aim.

Although America's Torch of Liberty is burning low

We must raise it up much higher—

You can count on the Red, White Blue and Gray

We're here fueling Freedom's fire.

We fought in Korea and Viet Nam

We won World War II too—-

We fought for the freedom of America

The brave Red, White and blue.

Socialm is not America's goal

We're taking our nation back

Back to freedom, back to God

No more skidding off America's track.

So now although we're older

And our fringes may be gray—

We the people plan to redeem our land

so won't you come and join us today.

Let's sing louder the Star Spangled Banner

Let's sing America the Beautiful too–

Let some tears roll down your cheeks

Many brave soldiers have died for America too.

Honor America's Pledge of Allegiance

Help defend the soul of America today–

Put your right hand over your heart

Thanking God for the Red, White, Blue and Gray!
