"I Remember America" as written by and John Stewart....
I remember America
I remember it well
When you could walk downtown on a Saturday night
Without the smell of fear on your shoulder
As you jump at every sound
And you never look into the eye of any stranger who could easily gun you down

I remember America
I remember every town
When crack was a sound that caps would make and the only guns that kids would have around

I remember America
I remember my friends
I remember America
And I wanna' be safe again

I remember America
I remember the time
When rock and roll was cool and fun and you'd read between the lines
I remember America
Like you remember the dead
When freedom of speech wasn't every four-letter word a sailor never said

I remember America
I remember my school
Now its graft and gangs and guards and guns and needles in the pool
I remember America
When kids could walk alone and go to the corner for a root beer float and safely make it home

I remember America
I remember my friends
I remember America
And I wanna' be safe again

I remember America
I remember my home
That any working man could proudly say it was something that he owned
I remember America
I remember the day, November 22, 1963 when they blew the dreams away

I remember America
I remember my friends
I remember America
And I wanna' be safe again

I remember America
I remember America
I remember America
I remember America
