AMERICAN DREAM
(D. DEFRANCE)

LYRICS

VERSE 1:

I WAS WALKING TOWARDS MEMPHIS IN MY WORN OUT SHOES

I WAS SEARCHING FOR FREEDOM I HAD NOTHING TO LOSE

A FEW HUNDRED MILES WITH THIS OLD GUITAR

I'LL SING FOR MY DINNER IN SOME CORNER BAR

OH SAY CAN YOU SEE?

THE AMERICAN DREAM

VERSE 2:

THE LIGHTS WERE ALWAYS BRIGHTEST WHEN THEY WERE ON SUE

SHE WAS LIGHT ON HER FEET AND ALWAYS ON CUE

DANCED LIKE THE WIND CATCHING FIRE

IT WAS ALWAYS FOR LOVE AND NEVER FOR HIRE

OH SAY CAN YOU SEE?

THE AMERICAN DREAM

CHORUS:

HOME... HOME OF THE BRAVE

AND LAND OF THE FREE

OH SAY CAN YOU SEE?

THAT AMERICAN DREAM

VERSE 3:

THE PAINTER HE TREMBLES AND SHAKES WITH HIS HANDS

NEVER CONSIDERED THIS AS PART OF THE PLAN

WORKED HIS WHOLE LIFE ON A MASTERPIECE

HE WAS NEVER DISCOVERED, HE WAS NEVER AT EASE

OH SAY CAN YOU SEE?

THAT AMERICAN DREAM

CHORUS:

HOME... HOME OF THE BRAVE

AND LAND OF THE FREE

OH SAY CAN YOU SEE?

THAT AMERICAN DREAM
