​America

This song is by Shannon Murray and appears on the album You And A Six String (2003).

The boy down the street from me couldn't wait to be older

But everything is different when you've grown

Because I am standing here singing tonight

While his body is somewhere unknown

Singing America America god shed his grace on thee

America America did you foget about me

Because the president's leading the chorus

Singing go shed your blood for us

There are some things I'd die for

Like the people I live for

There are some things I'd die for

But not this cowboy's war

Singing America America god shed his grace on thee

America America did you forget about me

Because the president's leading the chorus

Singing go shed your blood for us

Somehow war is the only answer

Suddenly god is on our side

All too soon we are singing swinging on the headlines of the times

Singing America America God shed his grace on thee

America America did you foget about me

Because the president's leading the chorus

Singing go shed your blood for us

America America
