There's A Star Spangled Banner Waving Somewhere Lyrics

Artist: Hank Snow
Album: Songs Of Tragedy

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 wished that I could also live someday
I'd see Lincoln Custer Washington and Perry
Nathan Hale and Calin Kelly too
There's a star spangled banner waving somewhere
Waving on the land of the heroes brave and true

In 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 US 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
There's a star spangled banner waving somewhere
That is where I want to live when I die
[ piano ]
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 brave deed I will be a hero
And the 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
(Jeff Hess)

Walking the last mile so weary and slow
It leads to the gallows from where I don't know
One step every minute each minute seems as a year
This parting is bitter when no friend is near

If I had one wish Lawd and that could come true
I'd wish I was pardoned and back home with you
I'd get on my knees Lawd and if you'd forgive
No more would I hurt you as long as I live

(The way I go on Lawd is crashing my soul
It's hard to be tied down in this prison hole)
There is one regret Lawd that tortures my brain
It's that I've been careless in causing you pain

Walking the last mile with each step I bear
Praying forgiveness from him way up there
Oh please say a prayer Lawd for it's my last keep
Please pray the great Master shows mercy on me

Perhaps in the next world on that judgement day
I'll find that the Master washed my sins away
There I'll hold my head up when my soul is free
And rest in your arms Lawd through eternity
