American Dream Lyrics - Will Hoge

Review The Song (0)



This used to be a one horse town
But the pony went away
Ended up in China ‘cause
They make it cheaper there they say

The store fronts all are empty
And the factory is dead
And these streets I used to walk on
Well now they’re just my bed

And I’m going down, down, down
I’m going down

Did a couple years of college
But I just couldn’t make it stick
Had to come back here and help mamma
Because daddy left when she got sick

She worked very day for nothing
Until she turned 62
sponsored links
And the same day that I buried her
The bank foreclosed on her house too

That’s my American dream
And I’ve been all that I can be
With nothing left to lose at all
I guess I’m free
That’s my American dream, dream, dream
That’s my American dream

Now I stand here at this off ramp
And smile as best I can
With a sign that says Jesus loves you
But it’s hard to think he gives a damn

When they roll down their windows
And put some spare change in my hand
But I’d give it all right back
To just be looked at like a man

And I’m going down, down, down
I’m going down

When it’s cold I try the mission
On nights like this I sleep outside
Under a bridge beside the interstate
Where I can hear those trucks roll by

And imagine I’m inside one
Just rolling down the road
But I wake up just to realise
That this place is now my home

That’s my American dream
And I’ve been all that I can be
With nothing left to lose at all
I guess I’m free
That’s my American dream
It disappeared in front of me
With nothing left to lose at all
I guess I’m free
That’s my American dream, dream, dream
It’s my American dream
