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
