    Great song, thanks for posting it.......

    It brings back memories, In 1976 I was in the 8th grade and in the drama class. I sang / spoke "The Ragged Old Flag" in front of the entire school. I can still recite the entire song verbatim, but it means a lot more to me now.....

    FWIW, I was a hit!

    This is the original version sung by Johnny Cash
