He worked the same job
For twenty-two long years
Driving eighteen wheels
Down the road
He was only three away
Before his pension paid
On that cold and rainy day
They let him go

He had Mastercard and Visa
American Express
A brand new car
And a mortgage on his home
Collectors called and treated him
Like he was a thief
And he wondered how
To pull that heavy load

And he pledged his allegiance
And put in his time
Just to lose to a number
On the bottom line
Of a laptop computer
Somewhere in L. A.
O' say can you see
He's American Made

Now the pedal's to the metal
And he ain't slowin' down
Keepin' faith in pride
He never once gave up
He's got a mint 359
And painted on the side
Is his own name
And the words
"In God We Trust"

Yeah he pledged his allegiance
And put in his time
Just to lose to a number
On the bottom line
Of a laptop computer
Somewhere in L. A.
Oh you can't keep him down
He's American Made

Oh he's proud to be
American Made
