Drunk Americans

Album: 35 MPH Town (2014)
  • We ain't east, we ain't west, we ain't left, we ain't right
    We ain't black, we ain't white, we just came here to drink
    We're all mud flaps and 'burbans, all ball caps and turbans,
    All prom queens and strippers, we're the whole kitchen sink
    And in here, were the same, everyone knows your name

    We just raise up our glass, we don't give a rat's ass
    If you're a Democrat or republican, we're happy to be here
    And that you can see we're just all drunk Americans

    We ain't second ex-wives, we ain't cowboys or redskins,
    Ain't preachers or kingpins, we're just having fun
    We're all suits and blue collars, short orders, long haulers
    Paper and plastic, too old and too young
    Ceo's, GED's, DUI's, FBI's, BHD's

    And we raise up our glass
    We don't give a rat's ass if your belly's too fat or your wallet's too thin,
    We're happy to be here and that you can see we're just all drunk Americans

    La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la-a
    La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la-a
    All drunk Americans

    We've been in, we've been out, we've been cool, we've been weird
    Thank God we're still here, in the land of the free
    And we all sing it wrong but we all sing a-long
    Sing along

    We just raise up our glass, we don't give a rats ass
    If you're a Democrat or republican, we're happy to be here
    And that you can see we're just all drunk Americans
    In these neon lights, we're all stars, we're all stripes,
    And we're all drunk Americans Writer/s: BOB DIPIERO, BRANDY CLARK, SHANE MCANALLY
