D             A               D 
I?ve traveled all around this country 
D            A                   D 
In my time I thought I?d seen it all 
      G            A             Bm       Bm/A    
But today I took a detour down a backroad 
          E7                             A 
Through a little town whose name I can?t recall 
           D          A               D 
There were old men on benches playin? checkers 
D                A                D 
Children playin? hopscotch on the square 
    G            A            Bm      G 
And high above a statue of an unknown soldier 
    D         A             D 
Old Glory was waving in the air 
Bm         G             D 
Suddenly I realized what I?d too long forgotten 
  Bm                 G               A 
A chill rose up like mountains on my skin 
    Bm            G        D            G 
Overcome with the feelin?, I knew I was seein? 
D           A       D 
America all over again 
D G A A?mer-icana G A D Pictures of a people proud and free D Bm G E7 A Bm Bm/A A?m-ericana, I?ll keep holdin? to the dream G A D You?re still what livin? means to me
I knew to stop would throw me off my schedule But I parked around behind the Five and Dime There?s something bout a small town in the summer Like a Norman Rockwell picture back in time Kids were courtin? at the Rexall soda fountain Like we did before they built the shoppin mall I saw so many reasons why I love this country You know some things never really change at all As I left the 2 lane road and pulled back on that superhighway I thought of what I?d seen back in that town And it hit me like a freight train That a stones throw from the fast lane, America is still safe and sound Chorus Twice
