GUEST,Dale happy? Feb 19 (Iwo Jima landing) (3) RE: happy? � Feb 19 (Iwo Jima landing) 19 Feb 06


There were at least two versions of Stars and Stripes on Iwo Jima, by The Sons of the Pioneers and byBob Wills and his Texas Playboys.

I certainly remember the Sons version on the juke box of my Dad's tavern in 1945. It only existed in my mind for many years until I got the Bob Wills version.

When the Yanks raised the Stars and Stripes on Iwo Jima Isle
Through the blood and tears they won through
Bless the heart of each Yankee there on Iwo Jima Isle
Resting 'neath a blanket of Blue.

High on the hill of Suribachi
Waves Old Glory and She always will
When the Yanks raised the Stars and Stripes on Iwo Jima Isle
There were tears in their hearts so they smiled.
