I was just a boy growing up on rolling stones
And some good ol' fashioned songs
Playing my guitar to an empty parking lot,
The crowd lasts all night long
I spun 45's, the records to my summertime,
Wonder if I'd ever see the world
Find a gal she'd let me sing her songs from petty,
She'd be my american girl

I wanna take you cross the state lines
Cause babe we're born to run
I wanna listen to American Pie
As were driving all night long
I wanna dance out in the pouring rain
And sweep you off your feet
Everybody wants to fall in love and be free

She was raised on Springsteen, rock n roll on tv,
I'm just dancing in the dark
And she saw johnny live
And he said he's gonna walk the line
If it leads him to her heart
I'm gonna try my best to fit that part

I wanna take you cross the state lines
Cause babe we're born to run
I wanna listen to American Pie
As were driving all night long
I wanna dance out in the pouring rain
And sweep you off your feet
Everybody wants to fall in love and be free

We don't have to put on the red lights
Yeah we could drive all night
Talk a little country rock and roll
Singing your song on the radio

I wanna take you cross the state lines
Cause babe we're born to run
I wanna listen to American Pie
As were driving all night long
I wanna dance out in the pouring rain
And sweep you off your feet
Everybody wants to fall in love,
Everybody wants to fall in love,
Everybody wants to fall in love and be free
