Aaron Tippin – Where The Stars & Stripes & The Eagle Fly

Vandaag is het 4 juli, dus tijd voor een patriotic song.  Deze Aaron Tippin uit Pensacola (Florida) doet wat aan Toby Keith denken.  In 2002 had hij een grote hit met deze song die vlak na 9/11 werd uitgebracht en op #2 eindigde in de Billboard Hot Country Singles. Ze staat op het album Stars and Stripes. In totaal bracht Aaron Tippin negen albums en dertig singles uit waaronder drie #1 hits.

Songtekst :

Well if you ask me where I come from
Here’s what I tell everyone
I was born by God’s dear grace
In an extraordinary place
Where the stars and stripes and the eagle fly

It’s a big ‘ol land with countless dreams
Happiness ain’t out of reach
Hard work pays off the way it should
Yeah, I’ve seen enough to know that we’ve got it good
Where the stars and stripes and the eagle fly

There’s a lady that stands in a harbor
For what we believe
And there’s a bell that still echoes
The price that it cost to be free

I pledge allegiance to this flag
And if that bothers you, well that’s too bad
But if you got pride and you’re proud you do
Hey, we could use some more like me and you
Where the stars and stripes and the eagle fly

Yes there’s a lady that stands in a harbor
For what we believe
And there’s a bell that still echoes
The price that it cost to be free

No, it ain’t the only place on earth
But it’s the only place that I prefer
To love my wife and raise my kids
Hey, the same way that my daddy did
Where the stars and stripes and the eagle fly

Where the stars and stripes and the eagle…fly
Where the stars and stripes and the eagle fly
