America Medley Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Some have said, down through history
If you last it's a mystery
But I guess they don't know, what they're talking about
From the mountains down to the sea
You've become such a habit with me
America, America
Verse 2
Well I come from, down around Tennessee
But the people in California
Are nice to me, America
It don't matter where I may roam
Tell you people that it's home sweet home
America, America
Verse 3
And my brothers are all black and white, yellow too
And the red man is right, to expect a little from you
Promise and then follow through, America
Verse 4
And the men who fell on the plains
And lived, through hardship and pain
America, America
And the men who could not fight
In a war that didn't seem right
You let them come home, America
Verse 5
And my brothers are all black and white, yellow too
And the red man is right, to expect a little from you
Promise and then follow through, America
Verse 6
Well I come from, down around Tennessee
But the people in California
Are nice to me, America
It don't matter where I may roam
Verse 7
And my brothers are all black and white, yellow too
And the red man is right, to expect a little from you
Promise and then follow through,
America
Verse 8
Tell you people that it's home sweet home
America, America
America, America
Verse 9
And my brothers are all black and white, yellow too
And the red man is right, to expect a little from you
Promise and then follow through, America
Verse 10
It's home sweet home, America
America, America
