Star Spangled Banner Waving  Various Artists

[F]There's a star spangled banner waving [Bb]somewhere
In a [C7]distant land so many miles a[F]way
Only Uncle Sam's great heroes get to [Bb]go there
Where I [C7]wish that I could also live some [F]day
I'd see [C7]Lincoln, Custer, Washington and [F]Perry,
[C7]Nathan Hale and Colin Kelly, [F]too
There's a star spangled banner waving [Bb]somewhere
Waving [C7]o'er the land of heroes brave and [F]true.
In this war with it's mad schemes of dist[Bb]ruction
Of our [C7]country fair and our sweet liber[F]ty
By the mad dictators, leaders of cor[Bb]ruption
Can't the [C7]U.S. use a mountain boy like [F]me ?
God gave [C7]me the right to be a free Ameri[F]can
And [C7]for that precious right I'd gladly [F]die
There's a star spangled banner waving [Bb]somewhere
That is [C7]where I want to live when I [F]die
'Though I realize I'm crippled that is [Bb]true, sir
Please don't [C7]judge my courage by my twisted [F]leg.
Let me show my Uncle Sam what I can [Bb]do, sir.
Let me [C7]help to bring the Axis down a [F]peg.
If I [C7]do some great deed, I will be a [F]hero
And a [C7]hero brave is what I want to [F]be.
There's a star spangled banner waving [Bb]somewhere
In that [C7]heaven there should be a place for [F]me.
