Lyrics

AMERICAN DREAM ┬ęPat Flanakin
Words & Music by Pat Flanakin

VERSE 1 Drivin' down the road in my automobile
Radio's on with songs I like to hear
From so long ago
Always makes me feel so sentimental

Verse 2 Dancin' to the music here behind the wheel
The wind in my hair always makes me feel
Like I did so long ago
Like I did when I was so much younger

CHORUS A And I know there's a big world right outside
'Cause I can see it through the windows as I drive along
I don't need anything - anything at all

'Cept a big eyed beautiful American dream
A real good looker in her tight blue jeans
Then I know I'd be alright
Drivin' down this lonely road tonight

But ev'ry town I see has a factory that died
And I can't understand why the workin' man
He can't make a livin' in a wealthy land

Well daddy told me son one day you'll grow up
It will be better for you than it's been for us
I know he did hot lie
He did not see ev'rything was changin'

Now ev'ryone I know seems to pass the buck
Even Uncle Sam he's run out of luck

M piece of apple pie
It was gone before my chance to taste it

And I know, ev'rything's ' gonna be alright
I'm just hangin' on to somethin' tryin' to understand
Why my job took off to some foreign land - and

VERSE 1
VERSE2
CHORUS A


'Cept a big-eyed beautiful American dream
A real good looker in her tight blue jeans
Then I know I'd be alright
Drivin' down this lonely road
I don't know which way to go
Looks like it to me the American dream
Has died
