I’m An American

words & music by The Whale
© 2012 Fiat Lux! ASCAP


You can take my guns from my cold dead hands
I got em loaded up right here I’ll make my stand
I’m an American I’m an American

I got a folded flag they gave me for my dad
He loved to serve his country it made him really glad
He was American and driving Deroit wheels
He was American oh yeah he knew just how it feels to be

Red White and Blue
Standing tall and true
I live for you
You where true blue

I used to have a job that covered all my bills
but now I’m unemployed dear Lord I hope I don’t get ill
I’m an American I’m buying Chinese junk
I’m an American damn - that NAFTA bill is bunc

Red White and Blue
selling out on you
you know it’s true
what you gonna do?


Now Obama’s in the White House and change is on the way
I still can’t see it coming, man it should be here today
I’m an American I got holes in my shoes
I’m an American I got them New World Order blues

Red White and Blue
selling out on you
what you gonna do when
that bill comes due?


oh no you can’t take my freedoms. God gave them to me
said if I would believe him the truth will set me free
I’m an American I got hope in my soul
God bless American yeah I don’t need no galop poll to be

Red White and Blue
Waving free for you
good men died for you so
stand up straight and true

so you can’t take my guns from my cold dead hands
I got em loaded up right here I’m goina make my stand
I’m an American I aint not elephant or ass
I’m an American yeah and I’m gonna to kick your ass!
