AMERICA I KNOW WE’RE STRONG

First:
Walking down a moonlite street
pavement underneath my feet
empty windows reflecting neon lights
Taking pause to clear my mind
getting lost in time
hard to take in where it all went wrong
Jobs have left us gone away
Leaders fail us every day

Chorus:
America I know we’re strong
We use to lead but what went wrong
When others count on us
They need to know they have our trust
Corruption on and off our shores
Where’s the country I knew before
America I know we’re strong

Second:
My shoes get dusted as a slow wind blows
Pick up my cadence as I cross the road
Hear a dog bark silence left behind
Mental picture comes to my mind
Is this truly the worst of times
Country needs to stand up and say
We’re behind you in every way
But our values must not be betrayed

Chorus:
America I know we’re strong
We use to lead but what went wrong
When others count on us
They need to know they have our trust
Corruption on and off our shores
Where’s the country I knew before
America I know we’re strong

Third:
Out of the darkness light appears
My journey ending as sunshine nears
Orange horizon tends to calm my fears
Thoughts of tomorrow going through my mind
World seems lost unkind
Have to work together and say
We’ll be better in every way
End the madness of war and human waste

Chorus:
America I know we’re strong
We use to lead but what went wrong
When others count on us
They need to know they have our trust
Corruption on and off our shores
Where’s the country I knew before
America I know we’re strong

Did you realize that you posted this same piece on two separate forums? I replied to this one over on Forum 1.


Might as well add that reading your lyric here brought back memories of this classic:

Beechnut,
Just thinking that due to the crazy historic times I need to get this message out there. I due think that a lot of things in my song relate to the times and feelings of the country. That Merle Haggard song has has always been a favorite of mine. What a songwriter he was.
