"Fourth of July" as written by and Waylon Albright Jennings....
I returned to the States one year after
The towers returned to the earth
And the sabers were drawn from their scabbards
They were rattling for all they were worth
And I understand how that could happen
I don't need to ask anyone why
It's September and I can't help but think that
It looks like the Fourth of July

Down on the shores of Lake Erie
They see the political slant
The pursuit of their happiness promised
By the stacks of the nuclear plant
Now there's flags flying on every lamp post
Red white and blue 'gainst the sky
It's September and I can't help but think that
It looks like the Fourth of July

It's the powers that be pay the piper
It's the powers that be call the tune
They want all of us up for the dancing
All howling away at the moon
But my ear's to the ground and I'm listening
I keep watch with a weather eye
It's September and I can't help but think that
It looks like the Fourth of July
