Where the Stars and Stripes and the Eagle Fly

Well if you ask me where I come from
Here’s what I tell everyone:
I was born by God’s dear grace
In an extraordinary place
Where the stars and stripes and the eagle fly
It’s a big ol’ land with countless dreams
Happiness ain’t out of reach
Hard work pays off the way it should
Yeah, I’ve seen enough to know that we’ve got it good
Where the stars and stripes and the eagle fly
There’s a lady that stands in a harbor
For what we believe
And there’s a bell that still echoes
The price that it cost to be free
I pledge allegiance to this flag
And if that bothers you, well that’s too bad
But if you got pride and you’re proud you do
Hey, we could use some more like me and you
Where the stars and stripes and the eagle fly
Yes, there’s a lady that stands in a harbor
For what we believe
And there’s a bell that still echoes
The price that it cost to be free
No, it ain’t the only place on earth
But it’s the only place that I prefer
To love my wife and raise my kids
Hey, the same way that my daddy did
Where the stars and stripes and the eagle fly
Where the stars and stripes and the eagle fly
Where the stars and stripes and the eagle fly
