American To The Bone

Recommended Posts

I played baseball when I was a kid
Mickey Mantle was my main hero
When I played, I wore number 7
Loved to watch those Yankees go

I bought Elvis Presley when he hit big
To this day, he's the world's biggest star
I've been to Graceland in Memphis 3 times
Sing "All Shook Up" in karaoke bars

I'm AMERICAN TO THE BONE
The Grand Canyon, I've been there
Seen the Sequoias and Niagara Falls
Been to Las Vegas and Times Square
Done Hollywood and Miami Beach
Watched Old Faithful in Yellowstone
Rode up Pike's Peak in Colorado
I'm AMERICAN TO THE BONE

I served my country in an army uniform
They stationed me in Bamberg, Germany
I came home and kept on working
At Castle Heights Military Academy

I paid child support like a father should
My son and I are close to this day
There's so much we have in common
Truth, justice and the American way

I'm AMERICAN TO THE BONE
The Grand Canyon, I've been there
Seen the Sequoias and Niagara Falls
Been to Las Vegas and Times Square
Done Hollywood and Miami Beach
Watched Old Faithful in Yellowstone
Rode up Pike's Peak in Colorado
I'm AMERICAN TO THE BONE

It's the greatest country
In the history of the world

Solo
Chorus

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
