GOD BLESS AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL—

A SALUTE TO AMERICA

(From the Red.White,. Blue and Gray)

Welcome to Baby Boomer Patriotism 101

We're glad you came today–

Before you dismiss us graying seniors

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

Although we may may be gray-headed

(And usually prefer driving tin the slow lane)

We still always get to where we're going–

—-And Old Glory's honor is our great gain!

Though 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 to keep fueling Freedom's Fire.

We faithfully fought in Korea and Vet Nam

And victoriously won World War II too;

We fought for the Freedom of America

The undefeated Red.White and Blue.

Socialism is not America's Constitutional goal

—–We're taking our great nation back

Back to Freedom, Back to God

No more skidding off America's track.

So now although we're sure getting older

And our fringes may be getting gray;

We the People plan to reclaim our land

So won't you stand strong with us today?

Let's sing louder the "Star Spangled Banner"

Let's sing again "America the Beautiful" too;

Let some warm tears roll down your cheeks

Many brave soldiers have died for America too.

Honor America with the "Pledge of Allegiance"

—-Defend the very Soul of American today;

Put your right hand over your heart—-

And Thank God for the Red,White,Blue, and Gray!
