HeartDear Old America

Standing in line on the depot floor Taking my time getting through the door Daddy said "Go!" and mama just cried Sister said "Devil's on the other side" Hurricane blowing, water gets high Can't turn around or I'll drown in lies When I get back I'm gonna own this town Shine that medal and wear that crown Fall on my knees and kiss the ground Dear old America Run run rabbit save your rabbit skin Jump right back in your hole again Bullets they cry whispering drone Fire in the sky God's on the phone When I get home I'm gonna shove my doubts Dream my dreams and shut my mouth Nobody knows what this is all about Dear old America We don't beg and we don't run We don't lose, we don't overcome Purple mountain majesty sliding to a broken sea Daddy he swear and mama she cry "My sweet baby she's bound to die" When I get back I'm gonna feel just fine One more day I'm gonna do my time Ain't no hammer gonna ring like mine When I get home I'm gonna shove my doubts Dream my dreams and shut my mouth No one knows what this is all about now When I get home I'm gonna shove my doubts Dream my dreams and shut my mouth No one knows what this is all about Dear old America
