    I listened to this song like ten times to understand and write down the words. I have not been able to find them online anywhere either. There are still a few words that I cannot understand! But here is what I have.

    * The old red white and blue

    There’s a dear old flag floating over land and sea
    And beneath its folds all men alike are free
    Tis the emblem of our righteous liberty
    The old red white and blue

    Beautiful banner bright
    Emblem of peace and right.
    No foe shall mar our stripe or star (Wave on!)
    Flag of the brave and free
    Honor we give to thee
    The old red white and blue

    In its glory long for a hundred years and more
    It has *** the sea and floated on the shore
    And it stands on guard at freedoms open door
    The old red white and blue

    It is **** by the blood our fathers gave
    And it led the way our brotherhood to save
    With a blood or stain it shall forever wave
    The old red white and blue

    Let me know if you know the words that I am missing!

    Thank you for the lyrics to the OldRed white and Blue.
    I was able to fill in the blanks.

    There’s a dear old flag floating over land and sea
    And beneath its folds all men alike are free
    Tis the emblem of a righteous liberty
    The old red, white, and blue

    Beautiful banner bright
    Emblem of peace and right
    No foe shall mar our stripes or stars. Wave on!
    Flag of the brave and free honor we give to thee
    The old red, white, and blue

    In it’s glory long for a hundred years and more
    It has kissed the sea and floated on the shore
    And it stands on guard at freedoms open door
    The old red, white, and blue

    It is hallowed to by the blood our fathers gave
    And it led the way our brotherhood to save
    With a blood or stain it shall forever wave
    The old red, white, and blue

    My daughter loves this song too. I am glad I found this forum.

    I believe lici has the words correct except for the third line of the chorus. I too listened to a recording many, many times to get the words and could not understand this line but found someone who knew the song and their words seem to fit what I hear on the recording. I think the third line is: "No fault shall mar (no fault shall mar), our stripe or star (Wave on!)" Words in parenthesis performed as an echo. Kids at my school love it also.
