"All American Kid" as written by and Craig Campbell Brice Long....
Was the captain of the team his senior year
In his eyes, on his helmet, he had no fear
Down by a six-ball on the ten
Said huddle up boys we’ve got a game to win
He snapped the ball, he looked left and right
Nobody was open so he tucked in tight
And before them boys hanging on to him
The clock ran out as he ran it in

And the whole town cheered
And his mama cried
And they rushed downfield
And they raised him high
Got his picture in the paper and the headline read
"All-American Comeback Kid"

He was recruited by the best schools in the land
He decided he would sign with his Uncle Sam
Kissed his mama goodbye in their living room
Said, dad, don’t worry I’ll be home soon

And the whole town cheered
And his mama cried
And they lined the street
Just to say goodbye
Got his picture in the paper and the headline read
"Come Back, All-American Kid"

Three tours of duty and a silver star
They brought him back home with his battle scars
He stopped off the plane in his combat boots
And he saluted the red, the white and blue

And the whole town cheered
And his mama cried
Another hometown boy
Made it home alive
Got his picture in the paper and the headline read
"Welcome Back, All-American Kid"

Yeah, this song is for those who never did
Come back all-American kids
