Oh well oh well I feel so good today
We just touched ground on an international runway
Jet-propelled back home from overseas to the usa

New York, Los Angeles
Oh how I yearn for you
Detroit, Chicago, Chattanooga, Baton Rouge
God I long to be at my home back in old St Lou

Did I miss the skyscrapers
Did I miss the long freeway
From the coast of California
To the shores of the Delaware Bay
You can bet your life I did
Till I got back to the usa

Looking hard for a drive-in
Searching for a corner cafe
Where hamburgers sizzle on an open grill night and day
Yeah, and the jukebox jumping with records back in the usa

I'm so glad I'm living in the usa
Yes I'm so glad I'm living in the usa
Anything you want we got it right here in the usa

Ah we're so glad we're living in the usa
Yes we're so glad we're living in the usa
Anything you want we got it right here in the usa

Ah we're so glad
We're so glad
Ah we're so glad
We're so glad
