    Default Born Again American


    Heres the words to the song..
    Just a workin’ man without a job
    It got shipped off to China via Washington, D.C.
    And I know I’m nothin’ special, there are plenty more like me
    Just the same
    I thought I knew the rules of the game

    I stood up for this country that I love
    I came back from the desert to a wife and kids to feed
    I’m not sayin’ Uncle Sam should give me what I need
    My offer stands
    I’ll pull my weight you give me half a chance

    I went up to a congressman and said to him “you know
    Our government is letting people down”
    He said he’d need a lot of help to buck the status-quo
    I said there was a bunch of us around

    I’m a Born Again American, conceived in Liberty
    My Bible and the Bill of Rights, my creed’s equality
    I’m a Born Again American, my country ‘tis of me
    And everyone who shares the dream from sea to shining sea

    My brother’s welding chassis at the plant
    He’s earning what our granddad did in 1948
    While CEOs count bonuses behind the castle gates
    How can they see
    When all they care about’s the do re mi

    It’s getting where there’s nowhere left to turn
    Not since the crash of twenty-nine have things been so unfair
    So many of our citizens are living in despair
    The time has come
    To reaffirm that hope’s not just for some

    The promise of America’s surrendering to greed
    The rule is just look out for number one
    But brace yourself ‘cause some of us have sown a different seed
    A harvest of the spirit has begun

    I’m a Born Again American conceived in liberty
    My Bible and The Bill Of Rights
    My creed’s equality
    A Born Again American, my country ‘tis of me
    And everyone who shares the dream from sea to shining sea

    It’s clear my country’s soul is on the line
    She’s hungering for something that she lost along the way
    The principle the framers called upon us to obey
    That in this land
    The people’s will must have the upper hand

    I felt the calling once before and took a sacred vow
    And faithful to that vow I have remained
    I hear the calling once again, my country needs me now
    And to her cause I have been re-ordained

    I’m a Born Again American conceived in liberty
    My Bible and the Bill Of Rights, all people living free
    A Born Again American, my country ‘tis of me
    And everyone who shares the dream
    From sea to shining sea
    And everyone who shares the dream
    From sea to shining sea
