Beckley, West Virginia

Celebrating the Flag and the Fourth with Music:  Independence Day stirs feelings of patriotism even in cemeteries, where American flags seem to be the perfect complement to holiday celebrations. When you see them, you may think of some patriotic tunes that fit the mood of the day. What's this one?
     "She's been burned, dishonored, denied an' refused
     And the government for which she stands
     Has been scandalized throughout the land
     And she's getting thread bare, and she's wearin' thin
     But she's in good shape for the shape she's in
     'Cause she's been through the fire before
     And I believe she can take a whole lot more"
