American Daughters

Album: Sarah Buxton (2010)
  • I left Lawrence, Kansas
    At the age of seventeen
    To chase down my own version
    Of the American dream

    Cowboy boots, a tie-dye dress
    In mom's ol' minivan
    If a girl like me can do it, sister
    I believe anybody can

    Oh, the land, she is my mother
    And freedom is my father
    Yeah, an' I am one of many
    Strong, proud and beautiful American daughters

    I got married way too young
    No one's fault but mine
    An' it hurts when you grow
    But you learn as you go that nothin' heals like time

    I found my faith in God
    An' my first apartment on my own
    An' now no matter where I ever go
    I know I'll never be alone

    'Cause the land, she is my mother
    Yes, and freedom is my father
    Yeah, an' I am one of many
    Strong, proud and beautiful American daughters

    Resurrection Bay, Alaska
    Oh, the Flint Hills roll in Kansas
    Time Square, New York City
    The Mississippi delta, anywhere in Texas

    Redstone, Colorado
    Sedona, Arizona
    The PCA to California
    It's all home sweet home

    Oh, 'cause the land, she is my mother
    Oh, and freedom is my father
    Yeah, and I am one of many
    Strong, proud and beautiful

    We're all strong, proud and beautiful
    Yeah, we're strong, proud and beautiful American daughters
    Strong and proud American daughters, yeah
