"America" as written by and Torstein Flakne....
The boy down the street from me couldn't wait to be older
But everything is different when you've grown
Because I am standing here singing tonight
While his body is somewhere unknown

[Chorus]
Singing America America god shed his grace on thee
America America did you forget about me
Because the president's leading the chorus
Singing go shed your blood for us

There are some things I'd die for
Like the people I live for
There are some things I'd die for
But not this cowboy's war

[Chorus]

Somehow war is the only answer
Suddenly god is on our side
All too soon we are singing swinging on the headlines of the times

[Chorus]

America America
