Made in America

  • My old man's that old man,
    Spent his life livin' off the land
    Dirty hands, and a clean soul
    It breaks his heart seein' foreign cars
    Filled with fuel that isn't ours
    And wearin' cotton we didn't grow

    He's got the red, white,
    And blue flyin' high on the farm
    Semper fi tattooed on his left arm
    Spends a little more in the store for a tag
    In the back that says U.S.A.
    He won't buy nothin' that he can't fix
    With WD Forty and a Craftsman wrench
    He ain't prejudice he's just, made in America

    Loves his wife, she's that wife
    That decorates on the fourth of July
    But says, "Every day's Independence Day"
    She's golden rule, teaches school
    Some folks say it isn't cool
    But she says the Pledge of Allegiance anyway

    He's got the red, white, and blue flyin' high on the farm
    Semper fi tattooed on his left arm
    Spends a little more in the store for a tag
    In the back that says U.S.A.
    He won't buy nothin' that he can't fix
    With WD Forty and a Craftsman wrench
    He ain't prejudice he's just, made in America

    Born in the heartland, raised up a family
    King James and Uncle Sam

    Got the red, white, and blue flyin' high on the farm
    Semper fi tattooed on his left arm
    Spends a little more at the store for a tag
    In the back that says U.S.A.
    Won't buy nothin' that he can't fix
    With WD Forty and a Craftsman wrench
    He ain't prejudice he's just, made in America
    Made in America, made in America

    Yeah my old man's that old man,
