Well the eagle's been flyin' slow And the flag's been flyin' low And a lotta people sayin' that America's fixin' to fall Well speakin' just for me And some people from Tennessee We've got a thing or two to tell you all This lady may have stumbled But she ain't never fell And if the Russians don't believe that They can all go straight to hell We're gonna put her feet back On the path of righteousness and then God bless America again
[Chorus] And you never did think That it ever would happen again (In America, did you) You never did think That we'd ever get together again (We damn sure could) Yeah, we're walkng real proud And we're talkin' real loud again (In America) You never did think That it ever would happen again
From The Sound up in Long Island Out to San Francisco Bay And everthing that's in between them Is our own And we may have done a little bit Of fightin' amongst ourselves But you outside people best leave us alone 'Cause we'll all stick together And you can take that to the bank That's the cowboys and the hippies And the rebels and and the yanks You just go and lay your hand On a Pittsburgh Steelers' fan And I think you're gonna finally understand

Kevin from Pittsburgh, PaThe truth behind the the line "Just go and lay your hand on a Pittsburgh Steelers fan" is that the Steelers used to have this truck called "the terrible truck" and Charlie Daniels used to sing off the bed of this truck. The truck was 1921 beer truck. Now one day before he went to sing, Charlie sat down on the fender on the truck and the owner, John Kasier said on live T.V to get off his ass thats not a seat. Then later Charlie put that famous line in this song. I know John and Charlie both myself.
Originally a chart-topper for Steve Lawrence in 1962 chart-topper, "Go Away Little Girl," became the first song of the rock era to be taken to #1 by two different artists when Donny Osmond's cover version also reached the summit in 1971.
"Cleveland Rocks" was written by an Englishman. Ian Hunter wrote the song after touring America in the late '70s and finding that Cleveland was by far the most receptive city to his brand of Glam Rock.
