  • Lyrics
  • I woke up from a movie I immediately forgot
    Got a heartache on the bottom and a headache on the top
    The part of me that hurts the worst is the one I just can't spot
    And it's all American made

    Through everywhere I go, somebody puts me in the dirt
    And everything I say, somebody says they said it first
    But I don't need ten million, baby, just give me one that works
    It's all American made

    I have been all over but I can't help feeling stuck
    Something in my bloodline or something in my gut
    Says go to California in a rusted pickup truck
    That's all American made

    1987 and I didn't know it then
    Reagan was selling weapons to the leaders of Iran
    And it won't be the first time and, baby, it won't be the end
    They were all American made

    But I was just a child unaware of the effects
    Raised on sports and Jesus and all the usual suspects
    So tell me, Mr. Petty, what do you think will happen next
    That's all American made

    I wonder if the president gets much sleep at night
    And if the folks on welfare are making it alright
    I'm dreaming of that highway that stretches out of sight
    That's all American made
    That's all American made
    It's all, it's all American made Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
