America, America, America, America
America, oh oh
America, America, America, America

The states, the states
The states, the states
The states

America, America..

    General CommentThis is a song full of very strong emotions and very deep meanings. America is a promise land, the land of freedom. However, behind all its glory there are millions of untold, heart-breaking tales. The "oh oh" is a cry from the bottom of everybody's heart, a cry that's filled with despair and sadness. "The states" is a protest statement which states Dylan's protest against the oppression from the authority.

    The first two lines have six "America"s in it, which is the Devil's number. Dylan is such a genius.
