Red, White, and Blue

This song is by Lost Dogs and appears on the album Little Red Riding Hood (1993).

Well, the worst that I could get there
Was the lead in my gut
But the worst that you can give me
Is this lead in my cup
I might be all washed up
But I'm a pretty good man
Sure, I'm hard as a nail
But I will sell you the blood on my hands

I'm looking at you
(Tell me what do you see)
I'm looking at you
(And I won't go away)
In the light of the star spangled evening
In the name of the red white and blue

My Daddy said A man has
Got to fight to be free
Tucked his slogans in the bed
There with my brothers and me
He'd be prouder now
If I had never come home
I wear the shoes and the clothes
And the crown of the soldier unknown

I'm looking at you

You say give me a break
I say show me you're broken
My lame and legless comrades have spoken
Say jump in a lake
I say you got to be jokin'
Where I come from the lake is smokin'

I will labor for your wages
For the cash of the realm
I will tell you all my stories
You can write 'em down
But you can save your tears
For the names on the wall
I'm a living reminder that
Pride comes before a fall

I'm looking at you
