All American Made

Album: All American Made (2017)
  • I woke up from a movie I immediately forgot
    Got a heartache on the bottom and a headache on the top
    But the part of me that hurts the worst is the one I just can't spot
    And it's all American Made

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

    All the Midwest farms are turning into plastic homes
    And my uncle started drinking when the bank denied the loan
    But now it's liver failure and his mad cows being cloned
    And it's all American made

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

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

    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
    But I'm dreaming of that highway that stretches out of sight
    That's all American made
    That's all American made
    It's all American made Writer/s: Jeremy Ivey, Margo Price
