American Made

Verse 1
This old road wasn’t always paved, soldiers walked this way…
After the war
Picture horses and Model As, there was a soda fountain on the corner of Main
And that old picture show when times were slow

Chorus
Like back in the day, yeah when everything,
Was American made, Hank Williams on every radio station
And in, every state, Studebakers and Chevrolets
Going this way and that way, do you remember when
Everything…was…

American made, yeah American made
American made, American made, American made

Verse 2
The churches they still stand on the corner, stories told and stained glass
But the factory jobs have moved away
There’s still high school football games and girls meet the boys and steal their hearts away
We don’t make anything

Chorus
Like back in the day when everything,
Was American made Elvis Presley on every radio station
And, in every state, Studebakers and Chevrolets
Going this way and that way, do you remember
When everything…was…

American made, yeah American made
American made, American made, American made

Verse 3
That little corner store with one gas pump, then two and four
Save the bottle for the refund, and that pretty girl next door
Momma calling you for supper when Daddy walks through the door
From that nine to five union ride back in the day, back in the day…
When everything…was…

Chorus:
American made, yeah American made
Hank Williams on every radio station and, in every state
Studebakers and Chevrolets going this way and that way
Like back in the day, back in the day, back in the day
Back in the day, back in the day, back in the day
