Stars and Stripes on Iwo Jima

When the Yanks raised the Stars and Stripes on Iwo Jima Isle
Thru’ the blood and tears they won thru’
Bless the heart of each Yankee there on Iwo Jima Isle
Resting ‘neath a blanket of blue.
High on the hill Suribachi flies Old Glory and she always will
When the Yanks raised the Stars and Stripes on Iwo Jima Isle
There were tears in their hearts tho’ they smiled. 

When the Yanks raised the Stars and Stripes on Iwo Jima Isle,
Ev’ry heart could sing once again
And the sight of Old Glory over Iwo Jima Isle
Swelled the hearts of our fighting men.
Long will it wave o’er the hilltop
As a symbol of heroes who died;
When the Yanks raised the Stars and Stripes on Iwo Jim Isle
Each American heart filled with pride.
