There's a Star-Spangled Banner waving somewhere
In a distant land so many miles away.
Only Uncle Sam's great heroes get to go there
Where I wish that I could also live some day.
I'd see Lincoln, Custer, Washington and Perry,
And Nathan Hale and Colin Kelly, too.
There's a Star-Spangled Banner waving somewhere,
Waving o'er the land of heroes brave and true.
n this war with its mad schemes of destruction
Of our country 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,
And for that precious right I'd gladly die. T
here'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
