[Verse 1]
Your flag and my flag,
And how it flies today
In your land and my land
And half a world away!
Rose-red and blood-red
The stripes forever gleam;
Snow-white and soul-white
The good forefather’s dream;
Sky-blue and true blue,
With stars to gleam aright
The gloried guidon of the day;
A shelter through the night.
Sky blue and true blue,
With stars that gleam aright
The gloried guidon of the day;
A shelter through the night.

[Verse 2]
Your flag and my flag!
To ev’ry star and stripe
The drums beat as hearts beat
And fifers shrilly pipe!
Your flag and my flag
A blessing in the sky;
Your hope and my hope
It never hid a lie!
Home land and far land
And half the world around,
Old glory hears our glad salute
And ripples to the sound!
Home land and far land
And half the world around,
Old glory hears our glad salute
And ripples to the sound

[Verse 3]
Your flag and my flag!
And, oh, how much it holds
Your land and my land
Secure within its folds!
Your heart and my heart
Beat quicker at the sight;
Sun-kissed and wind tossed
Red blue and white.
One flag – the great flag -
The flag for me and you
Glorified all else beside
The red and white and blue!
One flag the great flag
The flag for me and you
Glorified all else beside
The red and white and blue!
