"American Nights" as written by Chris Destefano and Tom Higginsen....
On these American nights
That's when we all go out
That's when we feel alive
That's when the tops go down

I'll break a dollar at the bar
And make the jukebox sing
So tell Rosie what you want
The first round's on me

We're gonna light up these streets, baby
Shake the dust off all your dreams, baby
We're gonna lose a little sleep, baby
On these American nights

Under the stars and stripes
We live and die with our friends
There's nothing we can't do
As soon as the sun sets

I'm gonna find me a girl
I'm gonna try to make her laugh
And if she gives me that look
I'm gonna take her hand

'Cause everything about her reminds me
Of all the broken romance behind me
I'm giving love another chance to find me
On these American nights

Daylight, please don't come up any higher
'Cause we've got Main Street lit up like a fire
Nothing compares to breathing the air
When I'm back in my home town
Someday my kids will run like I did
On these streets and old playgrounds

I wanna drive all night
Turn up the radio loud
Left hand in the breeze
I shut the whole world out

So come and ride with me, baby
I'm saving you the front seat, baby
Feeling nothing but free, baby
On these American nights

On these American nights
