I’ve loved this song since I was a kid in New Jersey in 1962 when we sang it in the auditorium every morning before school started. We sang some other patriotic songs too but this one was everybody’s favorite. I’ve always remembered it but couldn’t find any information on the Internet about it other than one other YouTube page and the lyrics on a kids music site. I did a clawhammer backup for the singing but the easy chords change quickly so feel free to slow it down and strum anyway you like. It sounds good either way.
