Looking for any info on a patriotic song. The only thing I know about it is these words....'Let's keep the "glow" in old glory, and the "free" in freedom, too.' Thanks! Dori

From the sheet music at Indiana University:
LET'S KEEP THE GLOW IN OLD GLORY (AND THE FREE IN FREEDOM TOO)
Words, Wilbur D. Nesbit. Music, Robert Speroy
Chicago: Frank K. Root & Co., 1918.
1. Columbia calls us all today,
Calls today; she's calling me and you.
She calls to the boys who have marched away
For the old Red, White and Blue.
CHORUS: Let's keep the Glow in Old Glory.
Let's keep the flag floating high.
Let's keep each star in the field of blue
As clear as the stars in the sky.
Let's all stand shoulder to shoulder.
Let's keep our loyalty true.
Let's keep the Glow in Old Glory
And the Free in Freedom too.
2. O say, can you see, as they did of yore,
Floating high, the emblem of the free?
It sends us its call as it has before,
And it sounds from sea to sea.
3. By day ev'ry thought has the same refrain.
Dreams by night, they summon me and you
To prove to the world there shall be no stain
On the old Red, White and Blue.
