Lyrics

I Come From America
© words and music Grant Maloy Smith

Can you see the Texas in my eyes?
I left her but she's still strong in me
We broke down in Kingman
so we walked to Bakersfield
Don't you know the mother road?

??I Come From America
America - America
I Come From America
America's from me

Can you hear the pilgrim in my voice?
Blown ashore by unforgiving winds
Beggars can't be choosers
but we choose to still be men
Don't you know - don't you know?

I Come From America
America - America
I Come From America
America's from me

We're the desperate and unwanted
We're the strangers
from the shanty side of town
Do my eyes look proud but haunted?
That's the destiny in me
That's the Texas that you see

Can you feel the prairie on my skin?
Baked and brown
With work and sweat and tears
Daddy always told me
That the dirt would take us in
Don't you know - don't you know?


I Come From America
America - America
I Come From America
America's from me

I Come From America
America - America
I Come From America
America's from me
