Johnny Cash's, "Ragged old flag"
The Lyrics:
You see, we got a little hole in that flag there when Washington took it across the Delaware And it got powder-burned the night Francis Scott Key Sat watching it writing say can you see And it got a bad rip in New Orleans With Packingham and Jackson tuggin' at its seams And it almost fell at the Alamo Beside the texas flag, but she waved on though She got cut with a sword at Chancellorsville And she got cut again at Shiloh Hill There was Robert E. Lee, Beauregard, and Bragg And the south wind blew hard on that ragged old flag On Flanders field in World War one She got a big hole from a Bertha gun She turned blood red in World War Two She hung limp and low a time or two She was in Korea and Vietnam She went where she was sent by Uncle Sam
Who They Mention:
Pierre Gustave Toutant-Beauregard, Robert E. Lee, Andrew Jackson, Braxton Bragg, Francis Scott Key, Edward Packingham, George Washington, and Uncle Sam
