Lodges in the United States usually have a "Flag Salute" at the opening of the lodge. Often, when there is a Lodge Musician, the lodges expand this to include the playing of the National Anthem. Even more impressive is this "Flag Presentation Ceremony" used in Henry Lodge No. 57, in Fairfax, Virginia.

Lodges in Texas, Georgia and parts of Alabama sing a "Funeral Dirge" (lyrics) to the tune of "Auld Lang Syne".

Festive Board Traditions and Songs, a song book from Norfolk Broads Lodge 8368. This is a "sailing" lodge, and some of the songs reflect that affinity. Contributed by Brother David Thompson.

- Eternal Father
- Lodge Song (Tune: Blow the Man Down)
- Visitor's Song (Tune: What Shall We Do with A Drunken Sailor)
- Bay of Biscay
- O Shenandoah
- Auld Lang Syne

More tunes for music used at festive boards and other lodge functions may be found at "The Internet Lodge Organist" by Brother Peter F. Coates
