Sometimes I wanna light up underneath the no smoking sign
Sometimes I wished they'd tell me how justice got so blind
I wish they'd just leave me alone 'cause I'm doing alright
You can take your change on down the road
And leave me here with mine

'Cause that ain't my America, that ain't this country's roots
You wanna slam ol' Uncle Sam but I ain't letting you
I'm mad as hell and you know I still bleed red, white and blue
That ain't us, that ain't my America, that ain't my America

Yeah, I was standing there in Dallas, waiting on a plane
I overheard an old man tell a young soldier thanks
Young soldier hung his head and said it's hard to believe
You're the only one that took the time to say a word to me
And the old man said

That ain't my America, that ain't this country's roots
You wanna slam ol' Uncle Sam but I ain't letting you
Yeah, I'm mad as hell and you know I still bleed red, white and blue
That ain't us, that ain't my America, that ain't my America

It's to the women and men in their hands
They hold a bible and a gun
And they ain't afraid of nothing
When they're holding either one

Now there's kids that can't pray in school
Hundred dollar tanks of gas
I can tell you right now this country ain't
Ain't supposed to be like that

No, that ain't my America, that ain't this country's roots
You wanna slam ol' Uncle Sam but I ain't letting you
Yeah, I'm mad as hell and you know I still bleed red, white and blue
That ain't us and that ain't my, that ain't my America
Oh no, that ain't my America

No, no, no, no
That ain't my America, oh no
