Bernie Taupin – Friend Of The Flag lyrics

There's people live in fear of a sickle and hammer
I was born for the ensign now I wave that Yankee banner
Pride ain't so ugly Hate ain't so young
And it ain't so far This country's come

But I'm a friend of the flag
I hope you understand I'm a pilgrim on the water
All the way from England.

The tall ships sail on through Into the harbour
Dark skins on the deck
But the immigrant he works hard here
Race ain't a colour white ain't the world
But I still love my American girl

I'm a friend of the flag I hope you understand
I'm a pilgrim on the water
All the way from England
And I married Miss America and gave her all I had
I'm a born again American A friend of the flag

And you paid the price the day you hunted buffalo
And you've just begun to tell us what the Hopi told us long ago
Peace in the heart shelters your life
No roof over doubt when the spirit flies

I'm a friend of the flag I hope you understand
I'm a pilgrim on the water
All the way from England
And I married Miss America and gave her all I had
I'm a born again American a friend of the flag

Hold on, sail on
Friend of the flag
Hold on, sail on
Friend of the flag
