  • You can make a Marilyn out of Norma Jean
    Take a poor boy from Tupelo and crown him king
    It the soul of Muscle Shoals
    Turning three chords into gold
    It's the heartbeat of American Dreams


    We're the roar in the bleachers
    We're the sound of tomorrow
    Pumping out of the speakers
    Living on second chances
    Rising up out of ashes
    We're the dark horse believers
    We're American Dreamers


    Build a rocket ship and land it on the moon
    Put a window to the world inside your living room
    The only guarantee
    Is a shot at being free
    It's the heartbeat of American dreamers


    We're the roar in the bleachers
    We're the sound of tomorrow
    Pumping out of the speakers
    Living on second chances
    Rising up out of ashes
    We're the dark horse believers
    We're American Dreamers


    We are the wheat in the fields
    The hammer and the steel
    The wheel that finds a way to turn
    And we are
    Sons and daughters of the fight
    The walkers of the wire
    We're American dreamers


    We're the roar in the bleachers
    We're the sound of tomorrow
    Pumping out of the speakers
    Living on second chances
    Rising up out of ashes
    We're the dark horse believers
    We're American Dreamers Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
