Tired of the way things are going..
Lyrics
Ain’t much left of our little town Instr 8 measure I finished school at the top of my class late night study groups, a thing of the past my parents worked hard to put me through school but now I’m left feeling just like a fool No matter where I look or where I go I can’t find a job or a place to grow What'll I tell the folks back home that I am a total waste of the seeds they’ve sown So many have died to keep us free so we can live the American dream Now the bank wants to come and take our house Put up a sign and lock us out Things are sure changing in the land of the free the futures lookin dark for my friends n me Unemployment's up and the stock market's down there aint much left of our little town Out sourced jobs you can say goodbye to "American Made" To American Pride the factories close and the mills shut down there aint much left of our little town 4 measure inst Welcome to the land of opportunity not so many years ago, my grandpas dream But things have changed here since he’s gone He probably wouldn’t understand what went wrong we still raise his flag on memorial day we do every year since he passed away just a small token of our appreciation to those who have died defending our nation He taught us all to work hard every day an Honest man’s work for a honest man’s pay By the he got home, and we were in bed He never complained he just kept us all fed Things are sure changing in the land of the free the futures lookin' dark for my friends n me Unemployment's up and the stock market's down there ain't much left of our little town Out sourced jobs you can say goodbye to "American Made" To American Pride the factories close and the mills shut down there aint much left of our little town pause whatever happened to our national pride when we'd pledge allegiance side by side If united we stand and divided we fall I'm terrified we're gonna lose it all. The cost of living is rising fast It’s anybody’s guess how long we can last we fight over money we fight over gas We never seem to learn from the sins of our past The price at the pump is gittin' out of hand we're still held for ransom by a foreign land We can't even bow our heads and pray for fear of what others might have to say Things are sure changing in the land of the free the futures lookin' dark for my friends n me Unemployment's up and the stock market's down there ain't much left of our little town Out sourced jobs you can say goodbye to "American Made" To American Pride the factories close and the mills shut down there aint much left of our little town
