Getting Settled in Grafton, Tobago

 

This Is My Flag

By Rocky McCollin

 

Many years ago three small ships sail across the sea
And the Captain of those ships discovered La Trinity.

But when the English takeover me and you
They gave us the Flag, The Red, White and Blue.

But now we could tell them
This is my flag
The Red, White and Black
There's no turning back
To look for the Union Jack
And so my sons and my daughters
Could now boast and brag
About the Red, White and Black
That's my Flag.

I use to take it cool under the Colonial rule
Until one day a Great Man came my way
He toured the country and educate the population
And the Red, White and Black was the birth of a Nation.

This is my flag
The Red, White and Black
There's no turning back
To look for the Union Jack
And so my sons and my daughters
Could now boast and brag
About the Red, White and Black
That's my Flag.

August 1962 the date our dream came true
When we walked alone our lonely road home
No more mother country to guide our destiny,
But the Red, White and Black which means you're free.

So now we can tell them
This is my flag
The Red, White and Black
There's no turning back
To look for the Union Jack
And so my sons and my daughters
Could now boast and brag
About the Red, White and Black
That's my Flag.

My Nation is cosmopolitan
Each owes toward black as white
Each creed and race has an equal right
Now we're not turning back
Let us all together salute the Red, White and Black.

So now we can tell them
This is my flag
The Red, White and Black
There's no turning back
To look for the Union Jack
And so mih sons and mih daughters
Could now boast and brag
About the Red, White and Black
That's my Flag.
