A GRAND OLD HEART

 

It was a grand old heart

It lasted through several yellow moons

It was a grand old heart

it played many tunes

it was a grand old heart –

Now it lies silent, veins and metal bolts strewn,

 

It was a grand old heart, from the start

… … … never unfurled.

 

 

 

With thanks to,

You’re a Grand Old Flag

 

by George M. Cohan
 

You’re a grand old flag,
You’re a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You’re the emblem of
The land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.
Ev’ry heart beats true
‘neath the Red, White and Blue,
Where there’s never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.

You’re a grand old flag,
You’re a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You’re the emblem of
The land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.
Ev’ry heart beats true
‘neath the Red, White and Blue,
Where there’s never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.
