America

Michael J Downey (c)2006

So, even though you’re searching

So, even though you’ve arrived

But you got it good, like they said that you would in America

Still, the dreams that you had, weren’t the dreams that you had come true.

But you’re not alone as far as I can see

Is that good enough, good enough for me

Is that good enough, good enough for me

All that you were, and all you can be,

You were good enough, good enough for me

Just good enough, good enough for me.


America, god shed his grace on me

America, I’ve seen you on TV

The home of the brave, and the land of the free

America, be all that you can be

(as far as you can see) It's black 'n' white, wrong 'n' right, in the end

So at the end of the day, you can stand up and say 'we win'

And that's good enough, good enough for you

That's just good enough, good enough for you

Look what it’s done, we’re under the gun

Is that good enough, good enough for me

(red) (white) (blue)

And I’ve read the news white lies the blues page three

America, god shed his grace on me

America, I’ve seen you on TV

The home of the brave, and the land of the free

America, be all that you can be

(Instrumental chorus)

So, even though you’re searching

So, even though you’ve arrived

America, god shed his grace on me

America, I’ve seen you on TV

Is that good enough, good enough for me

Is that good enough, good enough for me

America, America, you’re free

America, America, to be

America, America…
