Recorded LIVE at Billy Bob’s Texas
I traveled all around this country
In my time I thought I’d seen it all
But today I took the detour down a back road
Through a little town whose name I can’t recall
There were old men on benches playing checkers
Children playing hopscotch on the square
And high above a statue of an unknown soldier Old Glory was waving in the air
Suddenly I realized when I had too long forgotten
A chill rose up like mountains on my skin
Overcome with the feeling
That I knew I was seeing
America all over again
Pictures of a people proud and free
And I’ll keep holding to the dream
You’re still what living means to me
I knew this stop would throw me off my schedule
So I parked around behind the five and dine
There’s something about a small town in the summer
Like a Norman Rockwell picture back in time
It’s for courtin’ at the Rexall soda fountain
Like we did before they built the shopping mall
And I saw so many reasons why I love this country
You know some things never really change at all
As I left the two lane road and pulled back on that super highway
I thought of what I’d seen back in that town
And it hit me like a freight train
That a stone’s throw from the fast lane
America is still safe and sound
Chorus refrain x2
