Country Song

VERSE 1

 

Ooh, got the beat of this city street,

Caught up in my high heeled stride

Trying not to catch your eye

 

You’ve got a milk crate for a throne

Holding up a cardboard sign

Homeless vet please give a dollar or a dime

 

CHORUS

 

I’m writing you this country song

‘cause this land is yours, so much more than mine

You’re sitting in the ashes

we’re dancing on the flames

Of your sacrifice, sacrifice

 

VERSE 2

 

Bring back your story, the G.I. no one knows

For you must be a hero

disguised in beggar’s clothes

 

Once upon a time, goodbye love was on your lips

A chest puffed with pride,

Did you know the risk?

 

CHORUS

 

I’m writing you this country song

‘cause this land is yours, so much more than mine

You’re sitting in the ashes

we’re dancing on the flames

Of your sacrifice, sacrifice

BRIDGE

 

Pain of war, my greatest fear

If I talk to you, will I disappear?

 

CHORUS

 

I’m writing you this country song

‘cause this land is yours, so much more than mine

You’re sitting in the ashes

we’re dancing on the flames

Of your sacrifice, sacrifice

 

I’m writing you this country song

‘cause this land is yours, so much more than mine

 

Toss these lines into your cup

The voice of every man

Demand we give a damn

 

If I were president, if I were king

The parade of people rushing by

would raise you up and sing
