Americaland

This song is by Robert Bradley's Blackwater Surprise.

Just a brother living in Americaland
Just a sister living in Detroit City
Just a brother living in Americaland
Just a sister living in Detroit City

Here I'm back again
Reminiscing with my old friends
Sitting around just signify
'Bout some other gossip line

Lord tryin' to feel my way
Givin' love everyday
Lord, I take my advice
And straighten out my own life

Just a brother living in Americaland
Just a sister living in Detroit City
Just a brother living in Americaland
Just a sister living in Detroit City

There's been many rumors of war
I don't know what they're fighting for
But I'll go out and fight
Stand up for my own right

Lord, I'm with the funk you know
Lord, I dig wherever I go
But I feel it down in my soul
'Cause I still love rock and roll

Just a brother living in Americaland
Just a sister living in Detroit City
Just a brother living in Americaland
Just a sister living in Detroit City

Work hard day to day
Lord, they don't give me much pay
But I'll go out and work
For my own life's worth

Lord, tryin' to feel the way
Givin' love every day
I just wanna chill
Just livin' and paying my bills

Just a brother living in Americaland
Just a sister living in Detroit City
Just a brother living in Americaland
Just a sister living in Detroit City

Just another brother
Just another sister
Just another baby
Living in Detroit City

One time for my cousin Leroy
Lord, you know he fought in Vietnam War
And I got to give it up to my cousin Leroy
One time for my cousin in music, one time

One time for the Ray tells me what I say
One time for the Ray tells me what I say
One time for Ray Charles
Give it up for the Ray

Just another brother
Just another sister
