Lyrics

WE?RE AMERICAN

verse 1
We?re American - Born and raised
Red White and Blue Blood - American Made
Our Fathers came here - They crossed the waves
Some of them were free men - Others were slaves
chorus
Do you understand? - We tried to right the wrongs
And don?t you think it?s time - That we all gotta get along
Cause the enemy?s moving in - And he hates what we stand for
And that no good son of a nobody somewhere - That fool declared war
verse 2
On Americans - Born and Raised
Red White and Blue Blood - American Made
From California down to Florida - From Texas to Maine
Hollywood - Nashville - New York - Jesus still saves
repeat chorus
bridge
I was born here - gonna die here - I think you?ll understand
If you mess with American freedom - You?re gonna face a gun in our hand
Verse 3
You?re American - Born and raised
Red white and blue blood - American made
Inner city - suburbs - from the farms to the plains
Still the land of the free and the home of the brave
We?re American Made

We?re American - Born and raised
