Getting Ready for Veteran’s Day! 2015

Hello Parents!  It’s that time to prepare our students for Veteran’s Day.  Each grade will be singing a different song for each branch to honor our Veterans.  In this blog post you will find the lyrics and song with just the piano accompaniment and the piano with vocals.  Please help your child learn this music as they proudly sing to honor our Veterans for Veteran’s day!

PreK/Kindergarten – 

You’re a grand old flag,
You’re a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You’re the emblem of
The land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.
Ev’ry heart beats true
under the Red, White and Blue,
Where there’s never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.

First Grade –

Off we go into the wild blue yonder,
Climbing high into the sun;
Here they come zooming to meet our thunder,
At ’em boys, Give ‘er the gun! (Give ‘er the gun now!)
Down we dive, spouting our flame from under,
Off on one terrible course!
We live in fame or go down in flame. Hey!
Nothing’ll stop the U.S. Air Force!

2nd Grade – 

Over hill
Over dale
We will hit the dusty trail
And those caissons go rolling along
In and out
Hear them shout
Countermarch
And right about
And those caissons go rolling along
Then it’s Hi! Hi! Hee!
In the field artillery
Sound off your numbers
Loud and strong
For where’er you go
You will always know
That the caissons are rolling along

3rd Grade – 

From the Halls of Montezuma
To the Shores of Tripoli;
We will fight our country’s battles
In the air, on land and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
of United States Marines.

To Those Who Serve Lyrics

 

My country ‘tis of thee,

Sweet land of liberty,

to thee we sing, to thee we sing!

 

To those who serve,

who serve the free,

those who stand proud and tall and serve us all unselfishly.

With heart and soul they’ve answered freedom’s call.

To those who serve, who serve us all.

 

From this great land

our heroes hail,

putting their hopes and dreams on hold so freedom can prevail.

They come from north from south, from east, and west.

They are the bravest and the best!

 

How can we ever thank them?

Mere words would never do.

All those who serve and help preserve

our grand red, white, and blue!

 

To those who serve,

put fear aside,

upholding all that we hold near and dear,

they’ve lived and died.

They taught us all what truth and strength should be.

To those who serve courageously.

 

How can we ever thanks ?

Mere words would never do.

Our heroes brave who serve to save

our grand red, white, and blue…red, white, and blue.

 

To those who serve,

who serve the free,

those who stand proud and tall and serve us all unselfishly.

With heart and soul they’ve answered freedom’s call.

To those who serve, to those who serve, to those who serve, who serve us all!

To those who serve, to those who serve, to thee we sing!
