The Stars and Stripes Story
Stars and Stripes is a star at every group performance or solo,
sounding sweetly like a flight of sparrows,
surrounded by ethos and summoning pathos,
since before the time of the pharaohs,
this guitar’s spirit has been every musician’s hero.
As an accompanist to cupid’s arrows,
playing nightly in all the world’s boroughs and barrios,
with each soulful strum and serenade,
all emotions are on parade.
Melodies fill the air on time borrowed,
reflecting on love, loss, loneliness and sorrow,
beside hopes, dreams and best wishes for tomorrow.
Strumming out tales of friends, foes and lovers,
Stars and Stripes speaks to them and to all others.
