Song Lyrics
-

VERSE 1
Back in 1962
JFK ran the red white and blue
With "Ask not what this country can do for you"

But now it's occupy this and protest that
The economy's skinny and the beltway's fat
My grandpa 'd have something to say about that…

So I cling to my bible and I polish my gun
Good luck trying to take that son…


CHORUS
America
Somewhere down the line we got way off track
America
I'd sure like to have my country back


VERSE 2
Dr. Martin Luther King
Stood up and said, "I have a dream,
Where men will not be judged by race alone"

What we need is a revolution
Where we get back to our constitution
And we all pledge to one nation under God

It's Liberty and Justice and it's for all
It stands for something or we all fall

CHORUS 2
GTR SOLO

VERSE 3
If we don't take a stand today
Our great land will slip away
The blood our fathers shed will be forgotten

But I'm not willing to let her go
I love my kids too much to throw it all away

We've got to fight and pray
It's time for us to stand and say…


CHORUS
America
Somewhere down the line we got way off track
America
I'd sure like to have my country back
America
The greatest land this world has ever known
America
I'll be proud again to call you home
