There's a star spangled banner waving somewhere
in a distant land so many miles away
Only Uncle sam's great hero's get to go there
where I wish that I could live someday.

I see Lincoln,Custer,Washington and Perry,
Nathan Hale and Collin Kelly too,
There's a star spangled banner waving somewhere
Waving ov'er the land of hero's brave and true.

in this war with it's mad schemes and distructions,
of our counrty fair and our sweet liberty
by the mad dictators, leaders of corruption,
can't the U.S. use a Mountain boy like me.

God gave me the right to be a free American,
for that precious right I'd gladly die,
there's a star spangled banner waving somewhere
that is where I want to live when I die.

Though I realize I'm crippled, that is true sir,
Please don't judge my courage by my twisted leg,
let me show my Uncle Sam what I can do,sir,
let me help to bring the Axis down a peg.

if I do some great deed, I will be a hero,
and a hero brave is what I want to be,
There's a star spangled banner waving somewhere,
In that heaven there should be a place for me.
