it’s america lyrics – rodney atkins

drivin’ down the street today i saw a sign for lemonade
they were the cutest kids i’d ever seen in this front yard
as they handed me my gl*ss, smilin’ thinkin’ to myself
man, what a picture-perfect postcard this would make of america

it’s a high school prom, it’s a springsteen song, it’s a ride in a chevrolet
it’s a man on the moon and fireflies in june and kids sellin’ lemonade
it’s cities and farms, it’s open arms, one nation under god
it’s america

later on when i got home, i flipped the tv on
i saw a little town that some big twister tore apart
and people came from miles around just to help their neighbors out
and i was thinkin’ to myself i’m so glad that i live in america

it’s a high school prom, it’s a springsteen song, it’s a ride in a chevrolet
it’s a man on the moon and fireflies in june and kids sellin’ lemonade
it’s cities and farms, it’s open arms, one nation under god
it’s america!

now we might not always get it all right
there’s no place else i’d rather build my life

’cause it’s a kid with a chance, it’s a rock ‘n roll band
it’s a farmer cuttin’ hay
it’s a big flag flyin’ in a summer wind
over a fallen hero’s grave

it’s a high school prom, it’s a springsteen song
it’s a welcome home parade, yeah
it’s a man on the moon and fireflies in june and kids sellin’ lemonade
it’s cities and farms, it’s open arms, one nation under god
it’s america! it’s america! oh, oh yeah, woo!
