Will Hoge - American Dream Lyrics


This used to be a one horse town
But the pony went away
Ended up in China Ďcause
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 theyíre just my bed

And Iím going down, down, down
Iím going down

Did a couple years of college
But I just couldnít 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
And the same day that I buried her
The bank foreclosed on her house too

Thatís my American dream
And Iíve been all that I can be
With nothing left to lose at all
I guess Iím free
Thatís my American dream, dream, dream
Thatís 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 itís hard to think he gives a damn

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

And Iím going down, down, down
Iím going down

When itís 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 Iím inside one
Just rolling down the road
But I wake up just to realise
That this place is now my home

Thatís my American dream
And Iíve been all that I can be
With nothing left to lose at all
I guess Iím free
Thatís my American dream
It disappeared in front of me
With nothing left to lose at all
I guess Iím free
Thatís my American dream, dream, dream
Itís my American dream
