We Fly The Flag , By Robert Louis Crane 5-29-17-Memorial Day G- C -D -EM
D G C
My Nephew was asking , why Grandpa flew the flag from the porch
D C G
so I told him about the battle of “Big Week”, Back in February of 44
G C
There was the young pilot Mc Mullen, your Grandpa, and eight other crew
D C G
They were fighting the Nazis, and B-24s were the planes that they flew
G C
Operation Argument, was launched on that fateful day
D C G
Heaven knows they were hell-bent, to stop Hitler and his war machine

Chorus
G EM C G
Flags Are flying on the homes, For those who didn’t make it back
G EM C D
For every fatherless child, there were two mothers dressed in black
C D G C
We owe our lives today to the sacrifice they made
G D G
We fly The Flag, for the brave souls we lost and we must never forget

G C
Hundreds of planes flew out and the roar of the engines filled the sky
D C G
Every man knew without a doubt, Some of them, this night were going to die
G C
The shrapnel ripped right through the plane, Fire and smoke were all around
D C G
He counted 9 parachutes, but Pilot McMullen, well he never made it out
Bridge
D C G
So many lives were saved by the sacrifice you made
D D
So many lives were saved, were saved

Chorus
EM C G
Flags Are flying on the homes, For those who didn’t make it back
EM C D
For every fatherless child, there were two mothers dressed in black
C D G C
We owe our lives today to the sacrifice they made
G D G
We fly The Flag, for the brave souls we lost, and we must never forget
We fly The Flag, for the brave souls we lost, and we must never forget
G D G
PlayTaps on Guitar Lead with Same rhythm Back ground and end
