lyrics

True American Girl

Early morning the rooster crows
I wipe the sleep from my weary eyes
I pack my truck I’ll drink my coffee on the road
I kiss my sweet love where she lies

Nose to the grindstone working hard for my pay
I take a breath from the harvest air
Knowing when the sun goes down and homeward I am bound
I’ll find my sweet love waiting there

(chorus)
Cause this is true American living she’s a true American girl
My hand is on my heart as she sees my flag unfurled
They say American spirit makes American dreams
Oh she’s the finest anything that ever I have seen

Somewhere in these fields of endless gold
I know my fortune will be found
Together with the fellow man, working on different dreams
I’m sure of which we can be proud

Now when there’s worry lying heavy on my mind
Some days just seem so hard to face
But I know I know those days will come and go
Cause this is my time this is my place

(chorus)
And this is true American living she’s a true American girl
My hand is on my heart as she sees my flag unfurled
They say American spirit makes American dreams
Oh she’s the finest anything that ever I have seen

She’s a true American girl
This is true American living
And she’s a true American girl
