Born down in a dead man town
The first kick I took was when I hit the ground
You end up like a dog that's been beat too much
Till you spend half your life just covering up

Born in the you. S. A, I was born in the you. S. A
I was born in the you. S. A, born in the you. S. A

Got in a little hometown jam
So they put a rifle in my hand
Sent me off to a foreign land
To go and kill the yellow man

Born in the you. S. A...

Come back home to the refinery
Hiring man said son if it was up to me
Went down to see my V. A. Man
He said son, don't you understand

I had a brother at Khe Sahn
Fighting off the Viet Cong
They're still there, he's all gone

He had a woman he loved in Saigon
I got a picture of him in her arms now

Down in the shadow of the penitentiary
Out by the gas fires of the refinery
I'm ten years burning down the road
Nowhere to run aint got nowhere to go

Born in the you. S. A, I was born in the you. S. A
Born in the you. S. A, I'm a long gone daddy in the you. S. A
Born in the you. S. A., born in the you. S. A
Born in the you. S. A, I'm a cool rocking daddy in the you. S. A
