VERSE:
G                               C
After school one day a boy sat talking with his dad
             D
He said the teacher pulled out a book
           C
Taught us all about the flag
 
           G
About the red, white, and blue
              C
And how each color was defined
            D
And why we stand hand over heart
          C
Pledge allegiance every time
 
    Am                                  C
His dad pulled out a box with a folded flag
          Am                                  C   D
And said trust me son it means way more than that
 
 
CHORUS:
                  G                  C
It's more than a flag, or stars and stripes
          D
Yeah, it waves for the ones who died
                G
And gave their lives,
           C            D
So you and I could live on
 
               Em
It stands for truth,
               B
It stands for grace
                   C
It's colors don't run and to this day
            D
It carries sacrifice and scars
           C
And every stripe and star it has
 G         Am
You might know the definition
         C
But the truth is
      D           G   C D  G  C D
It's more than a flag
 
 
VERSE:
 G                                       C
You said that your grandad fought in Vietnam back in '65
               D
Three hundred fifty second dropping bombs
               C
To lessen the threats he had to fight
 
          G                         C
Got sent home in '71 with one less leg and a Purple Heart
               D
He used to say I gave some and some gave all
            C
And that's what we're fighting for
 
           Am                              C
They gave your grandma this box on the day he passed
       Am                              C        D
Fired twenty one shots, and folded up that flag
 
 
CHORUS:
                  G                  C
It's more than a flag, or stars and stripes
          D
Yeah, it waves for the ones who died
                G
And gave their lives,
           C            D
So you and I could live on

BREAK:
 D                  Em
It's there when we fight
                    D
It's there when we fought
            C
On foreign shores and right at home
 
 G       Am7
Yeah you know it's true
             C                     D
It's why we bleed red, white, and blue

                  More than a flag
By Brandon Davis

After school one day 
A boy sat talking with his dad
He said his teacher pulled out a book
Taught us all about the flag

About the red,white and blue
And how each color was defined
And why we stand hand over heart
Pledge allegiance every time
His dad pulled out a box with a folded flag
He said trust me son it means way more than that

It’s more than a flag
Or Stars and Stripes
Yeah it waves for the ones who died
Who gave their lives so you and I can live are own
It stands for the truth
It stands for grace
These colors don’t run 
and to this day it carries sacrifice and scars
In every stripe and star it has
You might know the definition but the truth is 
It’s more than a flag

He said your granddad fought in Vietnam back in ‘65
352 dropping bombs to lessen for all the threats he had to fight
Got sent home in ‘71
With one less leg and a Purple Heart
He use to say I gave some but some gave all
And that’s what were fighting for

They gave your grandma this box on the day he passed 
Fired 21 shots and folded up that flag

It’s more than a flag
Or Stars and Stripes
Yeah it waves for the ones who died
Who gave their lives so you and I can live are own
It stands for the truth
It stands for grace
These colors don’t run 
and to this day it carries sacrifice and scars
In every stripe and star it has
You might know the definition but the truth is 
It’s more than a flag

It’s there when we fight

It’s there where we fought

For shows right at home

Yeah you know it’s true
Its why we bleed red, white and blue

It’s more than a flag
Or Stars and Stripes
Yeah it waves for the ones who died
Who gave their lives so you and I can live are own
It stands for the truth
It stands for grace
These colors don’t run 
and to this day it carries sacrifice and scars
In every stripe and star it has
You might know the definition but the truth is 
It’s more than a flag

You might know the definition but the truth is 
It’s more than a flag
