They come from the cities
And they come from the smaller towns
Beat up cars with guitars and drummers
Goin' crack boom bam

R O C K in the U.S.A.
R O C K in the U.S.A.
R O C K in the U.S.A., yeah, yeah
Rockin' in the U.S.A.

Well they said goodbye to their families
Said goodbye to their friends
With the pipe dreams in their heads
And very little money in their hands

Some are black and some are white
And ain't to proud to sleep on your floor tonight
With blind faith of Jesus you know that they just might
Rockin' in the U.S.A, hey

Voices from nowhere
And voices from the larger town
Filled our head full of dreams
And turned our world upside down

There was Frankie Lyman, Bobby Fuller, Mitch Ryder
(They were rockin')
Jackie Wilson-Shangra-Las-Young Rascals
(They were rockin')
Spotlight on Martha Reeves
Let's don't forget James Brown
Rockin' in the U.S.A., hey

R O C K in the U.S.A.
R O C K in the U.S.A.
R O C K in the U.S.A.
