America will survive song - Hank Williams song for America/U.S.A.



Lyrics

People think we're nearing the end of time
But we've had enough and we've drawn the line
Our flag is up since our people went down
And we're together from the country to town
We live back in the woods you see
Big city problems never bothered me
But now the world has changed and so have I
And America can survive, America will survive!
We can plow our fields all day long
We can catch our fish from dusk 'til dawn
Yeah, we have toughed it out a time or two
These are dark days but we're going to pull through
We grow good old tomatoes, we got hometown pride
America can survive, America is going to survive

'Cause you can't scare us out, you can't make us run
What we got here is freedom and fun
We say grace and we say "ma'am"
If they don't like that, we don't give a damn

We came from the West Virginia coal mines
The Rocky Mountains and the big city skylines
Hey, we can hit back and we're going to be fine
'Cause this old country can survive, America can survive
I had a good friend in New York City
Never called Hank, he called me hillbilly
My grandpa taught me how to live off the land
And his taught him to be a street-smart man
He used to send me pictures of the Broadway lights
And I'd send him some of that homemade scuffling wine
He was lost like so many in the terrible strife
And we're all asking God, now why? Oh why?
I read, "A tooth for a tooth and an eye for an eye"
And that's an old slogan we're going to revive
'Cause America can survive, America will survive

'Cause you can't scare us out, you can't make us run
What we got here is freedom and fun
We say grace and we say "ma'am"
If they don't like that, we don't give a damn

We're from North California and South Alabama
And all they've done is unite the whole land
There's no more Yankees and Rebels this time
But one united people that stand behind
America can survive, America will survive
America can survive, America is going to survive
