Your Flag Decal Wont Get You Into Heaven Anymore

 GC
While digesting Readers Digest in the back of a dirty book store
 DG
plastic flag with gum on the back Fell out on the floor.
 GC
Well I picked it up and ran outside And slapped it on my windowshield.
 DG
And If I could see old Betsy Ross Id tell her how good I feel.

(Chorus)
 CG
But, your flag decal won't get you into Heaven anymore.
 DG
They're already overcrowded From your dirty little war
 CG
Now Jesus don't like Killin' No matter what the reasons for.
 DGBbCD
And your flag decal won't get you into Heaven anymore.         

 GC
Well I went to the Bank this morning And the cashier said to me
 DG
 If you join the Christmas Club We'll give you ten of them flags for free.
 GC
 I didn't mess a round a bit I took him up on what he said
 DG
And stuck them stickers all over my car And one on my wifes forehead.

(Chorus)

 GC
Well I got my windshield so filled with flags I couldn't see
 DG
So I ran my car upside a curb and right into a tree
 GC
By the time they got a doctor down I was already dead,
 D
And I'll never understand Why the man,
 G
Standing in the Pearly Gates said…

(Chorus)
