The Facts About Our Song
  • Title: You’re A Grand Old Flag
  • Composer: George M. Cohan
  • Lyricist: George M. Cohan
  • Year: 1906
  • The Reason: George M. Cohan met a Civil War veteran who fought at Gettysburg. Cohan noticed the vet held a carefully folded but ragged old flag. The man turned to Cohan and said, "She's a grand old rag." Cohan thought it was a great line and so named his tune "You're a Grand Old Rag."

You're a grand old flag, tho' you're torn to rag,And forever in peace may you wave.You're the emblem of the land I love,The home of the free and the brave.Ev'ry heart beats true under Red, White and Blue,Where there's never a boast or a brag;"But should auld acquaintance be forgot,"Keep your eye on the grand old flag.
