American Baby Lyrics - Dave Matthews Band and Dave Matthews

Review The Song (9)



If these walls came crumbling down,
Fell so hard to make us lose our faith,
From what’s left you’d figure it out,
Still make lemonade taste like a sunny day,

Stay, beautiful baby,
I hope you stay American, baby
American baby,

Nobody’s laughing now,
Gods grace lost and the devil is proud,
But I’ve been walking for a thousand miles,
One last time I could see you smile,

I, I, hold, hold on to you,
You bring me hope,
I’ll see you soon,
And if I don’t see you,
I’m afraid we’ve lost the way

Stay, beautiful baby,
I hope you stay American, baby
American baby (2x)

I hold on, to you, you lift me up
And always will,
I see you in life,
Hope I don’t get left behind,

I, I, hold, hold on to you,
You bring me hope,
I’ll see you soon,
And if I don’t see you,
I’m afraid we’ve lost the way

Stay, beautiful baby,
I hope you stay American, baby,
I hope you stay, beautiful baby,
I hope you stay American, baby,
American baby (2x)
Stay American, baby
Beautiful,

Nobody’s laughing now,
Cause you could always make me laugh out loud,
Stay American, baby
American baby,
Stay American, baby
American baby

Buried in the song, is the true meaning of the song inspired by a rift done by Boyd the day after the 2004 presidental election. America, in the view of the storyteller, is not the America he believe it should be. If we don't change the ways of the government, "I'm afraid we've lost the way." It boils down to the feelings of some in America in the eyes of the storyteller after the 2004 election. The storyteller sees that, "the devil is proud" with the way America is now, but there still is hope of the more innocent time America had, when America was a 'baby'.




Amazing. | Reviewer: Kelsie | 8/13/2007

I SAW DAVE AUGUST 4th .
He didn't sing this song, but its ok because he played it at the concert I was at before.
He's just amazing.

Rob you hit it RIGHT on mayn.
this song almost makes me cry in the winter cause it just makes me think of the summer of '05 and golfing.
great song.



Summer Anthem | Reviewer: Rob | 5/14/2005

Every year, one song stands out, the one you'll hear on the portable radios at every beach. American Baby is that song. Just listen, around 4th of July weekend at the beach or shore or ocean, you'll hear this song and forever think of the summer of '05.



this is music. | Reviewer: scott | 4/22/2005

i love this song. it is simple, yet very effective. it has a great melody, killer beat, and thoughtful, poignant lyrics. this band continues to improve over time.



SMOKIN! | Reviewer: Heather | 4/12/2005

I'm shocked...I have to agree with the above on this one...didn't think I could be more impressed and in awe of this band, but they DID IT again!
Stand Up rocks - American Baby is so impressive - between Boyd's part throughout and Dave's sultry voice, I like it more every time I hear it! Can't wait to see it live this summer!!!!!!!
