Lyrics
Looking for America Drove through a small town, with quiet dust roads The whole town took the day off for a carnival Nice to know there's towns like this These are the places that I miss God bless America, sea to shining sea Sometimes it feels like we've forgotten to be free I know you're out there and I'll find you again To see if you're the same as you've always been Saw a man walking down an empty road Shoulders stooped from years of heavy loads I asked him "hey mister, you need a ride" He said "there's no hurry, time's on my side" God bless America, sea to shining sea Don't you forget about those simple folk like me I know you're out there and I'll find you again To see if you're the same as you've always been Drove into a seaport - or it was one bygone day Where all the fishing boats sat anchored in the bay Close to heaven as it gets Lost in a time we shouldn't forget God bless America, yeah sea to shining sea Home of the brave and land of the free I know you're out there, I hope I find you again But will you be the same as you've always been?
