I Am American ( 1997 )
I am American, born overseas I have
roots leading everywhere, I'll be your friend.
I can't recall a time, we weren't coming back
out on the ships we turned, and dreamed of home
I am American, I stand before the flag
I wear it near my heart and in my head
I stand inside your door, the sure and certain one
who'll kiss away your need to be yourself
and every foreign seed adapts so well
just who you are right now don't matter
A - E - Bm - F# - G (twice)
I am American, guardian of liberty
together we can make us all the same
A can of cola and a crazy movie and
you'll never miss the one you might have been
I am American, you'd better know the truth
you can't make any moves, you'll be o.k.
you are mine, you are mine, you are mine...
Empires are frightening things, aren't they ?
and sometimes we don't know it's going on...
