My American Dream Lyrics

by America

I always thought that I wanted a long, new, shiny Cadillac
That a real man wears five hundred dollar suits upon his back
I always thought that I needed a big, old house with a million dollar view
But baby, since we fell in love, all I needed is you

Waking up (waking up) to my American dream
She's a long haired, blue eyed, country girl
She's better than a fantasy
Waking up (waking up) to my American dream
And I would not trade the whole wide world
For what she means to me

She's pretty as the moonlight on the gulf of Mexico
And her heart is pure and true as any California gold
I put her on a pedastel like Lady Liberty
Know there is no finer girl from sea to shining sea

I'm waking up (waking up) to my American dream
She's a long haired, blue eyed, country girl
She's better than a fantasy
Waking up (waking up) to my American dream
And I would not trade the whole wide world
For what she means to me

Waking up (waking up) to my American dream
She's a real live, blue eyed, country girl
The best thing I've ever seen
And I would not trade the whole wide world
For what she means to me
I'm waking up (waking up) to my American dream
I'm waking up (I'm waking up) to my American dream
