They used to be a metal band until 2010
When they traded in their axes for a bass and mandolin
They bought a six string banjitar and play the tambourine
Everybody's chasing the Americana dream

Skinny jeans and trucker hats, beards and flannel shirts
A couple pair of working boots that have never seen the dirt
They spend their days in coffee shops reading Pitchfork magazine
Everybody's chasing the Americana dream

They sing about the devil, they sing about the lord
They sing about the road but they've never been on tour
Living in a fantasy they've made themselves believe
Everybody's chasing the Americana dream

They say that country music sold its soul to make a dime
They say that Hank would disapprove if he was still alive
If he's rolling over in his grave, it's only cause he's seen
Everybody chasing the Americana dream

They sing about the devil, they sing about the lord
They sing about the road but they've never been on tour
Living in a fantasy they've made themselves believe
Of everybody chasing the Americana dream

They sing about the devil, they sing about the lord
They made a full length album with out a single major chord
Trying to touch the past with their vinyl time machines
Everybody's chasing
Everybody's chasing
Everybody's chasing the Americana dream
