  • We're made in Detroit and Silicon Valley
    Little deuce coupe and mustang Sally
    Madris beads and a boulevard of broken dreams
    Clint Eastwood and Richard Petty
    Isley Brothers and people get ready
    Moonshine wine and faded old blue jeans

    Ohh... land of the free and home of the brave
    Ohh... Hollywood and Jesus saves

    Hey you, hey me, hey hey what you wanna be?
    Your country heart beats true with rock and roll
    Hey red, white, blue, we're apple pie and crawfish stew
    All mixed up in a big old Super Bowl
    Of American soul

    We're hi tech and hi top chucks
    Six pack abs and six point bucks
    Redwood boys and Panama City girls
    Cowboys and Indians chiefs
    Sundress, bikinis and boxers briefs
    Where Elvis is king and Dairy Queen swirls

    Ohh... land of Lincoln and Robert E. Lee
    Ohh... from sea to shining sea

    Hey you, hey me, hey hey what you wanna be?
    Your country heart beats true with rock and roll
    Hey red, white, blue, we're apple pie and crawfish stew
    All mixed up in a big old Super Bowl
    Of American soul

    Dr. Pepper, Dr. King
    Coal mines and diamond rings
    Muddy water Mississippi delta blues
    Pop tops, hip hop and high heel shoes

    Hey baby take my hand
    Watch the sun set in the promised land
    Shadow dance with me and the radio

    Hey you, hey me, hey hey what you wanna be?
    Your country heart beats true with rock and roll
    Hey red, white, blue, we're apple pie and crawfish stew
    All mixed up in a big old Super Bowl
    Of American soul Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
