Stand Up and Praise the Flag

J. Michael Welborn 1970 (Alabama)



Stand up and praise the flag
For all it's noble tribes
Stand up and praise the flag
For all the men who died.

Stand up and praise the flag
For the country which it stands
Stand up and praise the flag
For its lent a helping hand.

Stand up and praise the flag
For it's not just yours but mine
Stand up and praise the flag
And defend it all the time
