"Heartland" as written by John Bettis and Stephen Hartley Dorff....
When you hear twin fiddles and a steel guitar
You're listenin' to the sound of the American heart
And opry music on a Saturday night
Brings a smile to your face and a tear to your eye

[Chorus: x2]
Sing a song about the Heartland
The only place I feel at home
Sing about the way a good man
Works until the daylight's gone
Sing the rain on the roof on a summer night
Where they still know wrong from right
Sing a song about the Heartland
Sing a song about my life

    General CommentThis song to me, personifies what I live for. Whenever I hear this song, especially off his album "For The Last Time; Live From the Houston Astrodome" I get all happy and it makes me glad that I'm in my school's FFA program and all about American Traditions!
