THERE’S A STAR SPANGLED BANNER WAVING SOMEWHERE (Paul Roberts / Shelby Darnell (m & l) 1942) Elton Britt 1942 There's a star spangled banner wavin’ 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 Colin Kelly too There's a star spangled banner wavin’ somewhere Waving o'er the land of heroes brave and true. (bridge) In this war with it’s 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 For that precious right I'd gladly die There's a star spangled banner wavin’ somewhere That is where I want to live when I die. (bridge) 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 wavin’ somewhere In that heaven, there should be a place for me.
