1 There’s a dear old flag floating over land and sea;
And beneath its folds all men alike are free;
‘Tis the emblem of a righteous liberty—
The old Red, White and Blue.

Refrain:
Beautiful banner bright,
Emblem of peace and right!
No foe shall mar, one stripe or star!
Flag of the brave and free,
Honor we give to thee,
The old Red, White and Blue.

2 In its glory, lo, for a hundred years, and more,
It has kissed the sea and floated on the shore,
And it stands on guard at freedom’s open door—
The old Red, White and Blue. [Refrain]

3 It is hallowed, too, by the blood our fathers gave,
And it led the way our brotherhood to save;
Without blot or stain it shall forever wave—
The old Red, White and Blue. [Refrain]
