WHERE THE STARS AND STRIPES AND THE EAGLE FLIES
 
                 D
1. Well, if you ask me where I come from,
 
    here's what I tell everyone :
     G
     I was born by God's dear grace 
            D
    in a extra - ordinary place,
                       Em                     - G                          D      - G
     where the Stars and Stripes      and the Eagle flies.
 
              D
2. It's a big ol' land with countless dreams,
 
    and happiness ain't out of reach.
                G
    Hard work pays off the way it should,
                                  D
    yeah, I've seen enough to know that we've got it good!
                       Em                      - G                          D
    Where the Stars and Stripes       and the Eagle flies.
 
                     C                               G                               D
    There's a lady that stands in a harbor for what we believe,
                           C                                     G                                A
    and there's a bell that still echoes the price that it cost to be free.
 
         D
3. I pledge allegiance to this flag,
 
    and if that bothers you, well that's too bad!
               G
    But if you got pride and you're proud you do,
                            D
    hey, we could use some more like me and you.
                       Em                      - G                         D
    Where the Stars and Stripes      and the Eagle flies.
 
                     C                               G                               D
    There's a lady that stands in a harbor for what we believe,
                           C                                     G                                A
    and there's a bell that still echoes the price that it cost to be free.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
               D
4. No, it ain't the only place on earth,
 
    but it's the only place that I prefer,
         G
    to love my wife and raise my kids,
                    D
    hey, the same way that my daddy did.
                      Em                     - G                          D
   Where the Stars and Stripes      and the Eagle flies.
                       Em                     - G                          D
    Where the Stars and Stripes      and the Eagle flies.
                       Em                     - G                          D
    Where the Stars and Stripes      and the Eagle flies…..
