  • And I hope that you find it, all that you need
    I hope that you stay young and wild and free
    You'll have America
    And I hope that you're better than all of your friends
    I hope that they hold you until the end
    You can have America
    Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm

    But all of our time chasing America
    But she never had a home for me
    All of our time chasing a dream
    Hmm-hmm, hmm
    A dream that meant nothing to me

    And see where I found you, where they all lay
    All of the greats, they are here to stay
    Here in America
    And I hope that you're finding, all that you are
    I hope that it sets you up high
    In the heart of America
    Hmm, hmm

    But all of our time chasing America
    But she never had a home for me
    Hmm-hmm, hmm
    All of our time chasing a dream
    Hmm-hmm, hmm
    A dream that meant nothing to me

    And all the parties they fade
    And yes, my looks, they'll go away
    I'll just be left here in America
    But she never had a home for me Writer/s: Daniel Harry Joseph Rothman, Hannah Felicity May Reid
