Back to American Music lyrics

American Music

I have a dream, it's only one dream
But I know dreams can come true
And I have a wish, it's only one wish
But I know wishes can too

I wanna be far away from here
With those honky tonk heroes
Burnin' my ears, oh

Love American music
I play it all night long
Just me n' records
N' a vivid imagination

I love to dance in the mirror
I practice every single word
And it seems to me American music
Is all I've ever heard

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
It's lonely on the underground
I sit and watch my world go
Round n' round n' round n' round n' round
I sit and watch the world go round

I hear the sons of Memphis
I hear the brothers or Harlem
I hear the Nashville Cats
N' the rag time mamas outta New Orleans

I hear the Windy City
I hear a gospel singers hymn
And it seems to me
American music is all there's ever been

C'mon baby, oh, oh, oh, oh, ooh ooh
I love the names of the cities
I hear the echo echoing
And it seems to me American music
Is all there's ever been
