Title of Liberty (2000)


Em D C G
I see a tattered rag hanging on a pole
With thirteen stripes of red and of white
Fifty stars are worn and torn
And the blue sky is fading away

D_A_C_G_D_A_C_G_
Now what do they mean when they’re talking about the American Dream

D_A_C_G_G_A_Em_ D_ C_B_A_ G_ E
When in the rain and the Darkness they let is fade away

They pledge allegiance with their mouths but their hearts don’t know why
For their homes and liberty would they die
We cannot let this land like a dead man lie
So let those stripes of liberty and stars forever fly

Now what do they mean when they’re talking about the American Dream
When in the works of their hands they take it all away

I took a brand new quarter out of my pocket and read those long forgotten words
In God we trust, there must be some reason why
Those words are still there and we cannot let them die

So raise that title of liberty in this land to keep it free from the chains of darkness
Don’t let it fade away!
