I Want To Live In America

Lyrics: Bobby Cochran, Bob Weir, John Barlow, Gerrit Graham
Music: Bobby Cochran

Played by Bob Weir with Bobby & The Midnites

All this hometown history is slippin' away
Shattered by a miracle age
I'm gonna roar through the night on a fantasy flight
As soon as I come of age
When the dream ignites, there's a flame so bright
Burnin' in a young man's heart
Get your hands on the wheel of some Detroit steel
You can hear the music start

I'm telling you I want to live in America
I want to live in America

Have you ever been down south of Chinatown
Seen the face of a refugee
The kids are alive, they've learned to survive
They're just like you and me
All their friends back home wonder what it's like alone
Living in the land of the free
It's another way of life, rev it up and take a ride
Realise your dreams

I'm telling you I want to live in America
I want to live in America

Where the electric guitars ring out loud
It's the heartbeat of the steet
Where the engines scream and the music's mean
I just gotta feel the heat

I'm telling you I want to live in America
I want to live in America

Where the electric guitars ring out loud
It's the heartbeat of the steet
Where the engines scream and the music's mean
I just gotta feel the heat

I'm telling you I want to live in America
I want to live in America
I'm telling you I want to live in America
I want to live in America
