Song of the Day: Ragged Old Flag

Independence Day isn’t until Thursday, but it’s never too early to celebrate the country that we live in. Today’s Song of the Day comes from Johnny Cash and it is one of my favorite America themed songs. it is a spoken word track that tells a story of how a guest questions an older gentleman about the town’s reason behind letting a torn flag fly in their town square. It tells a story of patriotism and the older gentleman reflects on some important dates in American history. The song was released in 1974, but it didn’t really see much mainstream success. As we head into a new week, remember the freedoms that we are fortunate to have and how lucky we are to live where we live.
