​America High

This song is by Kane.

We cut through the backwoods of the Harrison farm
Jumped over the rock fence under Mr. Jenkins' barn
Made a beeline down Choctaw Bend
To the Pawnee Bridge and ran into town
Raced that train to the tracks without slowing down

We went to see the mason man
At Old Man James' store
And those rocking chairs weren't rocking
The answers are gone, and there's a sign
That said 'Closed' on the door

Turned around and ran back to the tracks
To who the kids had come to call
The Reverend Railroad Miller Jack

And he'd give you sermons and songs
All his rights and what's wrongs
I would string this guitar with a flag
Across his lap and he'd say

"Settle down now, you kids are gonna be okay
Settle down now, the boys and girls
Are fighting for you today
Settle down now, I'm gonna tell you
What you wanna believe"

Well he said, "You dedicate your soul
For God, country and rock 'n' roll
And get America High
And get America High"

We filed them questions one by one
And he knocked 'em down to the ground
While we stood there in line
He said, "I fought with your daddy, child
Off the coast of Hell in the summer of 1969"

"Well, I was born in the Vietnam War
And he died later that same year
But this country is my rock
And my soul rolls from my faith in God
And that's what keeps me here"

"Settle down now, you kids are gonna be okay
Settle down now, the boys and girls
Are fighting for you today
Settle down now, settle down"

Well he said, "You dedicate your soul
For God, country and rock 'n' roll
And get America High
And get America High
And get America High"
