"American" as written by Gary Louris, Taylor Burns, Joel King and Ricky Young....
In the garden, sunlight-painted skin
Country backroads, never see again
West coast sunset, blue jeans broken in

American
I've been away for way too long
American
I only miss you when I'm gone

Halfway home and still I can't forget
Melodies were ringin' in our head

American
I've been away for way too long
American
I only miss you when I'm gone

And I'm not sayin' I'd never roam
But if I ever leave again I'm coming home

Carry you with me in a song
All your mystery keeps me hangin' on
Carry you with me in a song
All your mystery keeps me hangin' on

American
I've been away for way too long
American
I only miss you when I'm gone

American
I'm not sayin' I'd never roam
American
But if I ever leave again I'd go home

American
