Bob Wills – Stars And Stripes On Iwo Jima Lyrics

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
