Archive - mountain dulcimer tablature arrangement in the 1-3-5 tuning - You're A Grand Old Flag



You're A Grand Old Flag



Composed by George M. Cohan

Arranged by John Sackenheim


             George Cohan had a colorful career as a singer, dancer, director,  composer and producer of vaudeville shows and music. He was openly patriotic, claiming to have been born on the fourth of July. Two of his best-known compositions were You’re A Grand Old Flag and Yankee Doodle Boy. The latter title was chosen for a movie of his life, starring James Cagney.  We’ve chosen You’re A Grand Old Flag as an appropriate selection for the coming Fourth of July holiday.


            John Sackenheim arranged this song in the key of G, using the D-F#-A tuning! Other keys possible with this tuning are D, A, and Bm, all without a capo. Notice that the music is written in 2/4 time signature, to be played as a lively march.  The music included here is for the chorus of the song.
