GUEST,Argenine Help: American patriotic songs (51* d) Lyr Add: FOLLOW THE FLAG (Randy Newman) 07 Jul 02

I had never heard of this one until yesterday, but I find the song interesting, considering who wrote it.


Circa 1988
Words and Music by Randy Newman

 You can stand alone or with somebody else.
 Or stand with all of us, together.
 If you can believe in some-thing bigger than your-self,
 You can  follow the flag forever.

 They say it's  just a dream that dreamers dreamed,
 that it's an empty thing that really has no meaning.
 They say it's all a lie, but it's not a lie.
 I'm gonna  follow the flag 'till I die.

 Into every life a little rain must fall,
 But it's not gonna rain forever.
 You can rise  above, you can rise above it all.
 We will follow the flag together.
 We will follow the flag forever.
