  • Doublewide Quick Stop midnight T-top
    Jack in her Cherry Coke town
    Momma and daddy put their roots right here
    'Cause this is where the car broke down
    Yellow dog school bus kickin' up red dust
    Pickin' us up by a barbed wire fence
    MTV on the RCA, no A/C in the vents

    We were Jesus save me, blue jean baby
    Born in the USA
    Trailer park truck stop, faded little map dots
    New York to LA
    We were teenage dreamin', front seat leanin'
    Baby, come give me a kiss
    Put me on the cover of the Rolling Stone
    Uptown down home American kids
    Growin' up in little pink houses
    Makin' out on living room couches
    Blowin' that smoke on Saturday night
    A little messed up, but we're all alright

    Baptist church parkin' lot, tryin' not to get caught
    Take her home and give her your jacket
    Makin' it to second base, but sayin' you went all the way
    Monday afternoon at practice
    Sisters got a boyfriend daddy doesn't like
    Now he's sittin' out back, 30/30 in his lap
    In the blue bug zapper light

    We were Jesus save me, blue jean baby
    Born in the USA
    Trailer park truck stop, faded little map dots
    New York to LA
    We were teenage dreamin', front seat leanin'
    Baby, come give me a kiss
    Put me on the cover of the Rolling Stone
    Uptown down home American kids
    Growin' up in little pink houses
    Makin' out on living room couches
    Blowin' that smoke on Saturday night
    A little messed up, but we're all alright

    We were Jesus save me, blue jean baby
    Born in the USA
    Trailer park truck stop, faded little map dots
    New York to LA
    We were teenage dreamin', front seat leanin'
    Baby, come give me a kiss
    Put me on the cover of the Rolling Stone
    Uptown down home American kids
    Growin' up in little pink houses
    Makin' out on living room couches
    Blowin' that smoke on Saturday night
    A little messed up, but we're all alright Writer/s: Luke Laird, Rodney Clawson, Shane Mcanally
