American Beautiful

Album: American Beautiful (2012)
  • She puts her boots and bandanna on
    She has a hankering for Rolling Stones
    She likes her vegetables home grown
    A lot like the boy waiting out in the truck

    She'll take a hill like Roosevelt
    Holds up her pants with a Bible belt
    She cracks 'em up like a liberty bell
    A whole lot of tender and a little bit tough

    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    She's a little unusual
    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    She's American beautiful

    Well, he is a mutt with a pedigree
    Sinatra junkie in a pair of jeans
    He pays his dues in the Land of the Free
    Says, "Why walk, baby, we were born to run"

    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    He's a little unusual
    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    He's American beautiful

    Yeah, yeah, yeah

    I saw that girl in a mirror once
    With a boy like that in a cloud of dust
    I think they look a lot like us
    'Cause we are, we are, we are

    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    We are a little unusual
    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    We are American beautiful

    Yeah, ooh, ooh, ooh
    We are a little unusual
    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    We are American, American, American beautifulWriter/s: BRETT BEAVERS, AARON HENNINGSEN, BRIAN HENNINGSEN, CLARA HENNINGSEN
