Shamus M'Cool – American Memories lyrics

We got trucks and trains
Cars and planes
We even put a man on the moon

Yet we've had riots and slaves
Shameful days
The sad American tune

But I read in a book
About when the world shook
World wars one and two

Yeah, what did we get
Abuse and neglect
From pullin' the free world through

American memories
Land of honey and wild
American memories
Go back when we were a child

I remember the day
That jfk
Left America cryin'

I remember the day
I heard a President
Yes, I do resign

We've had great depressions
And phony recessions
The energy crisis?

But through it all
We've grown so tall
The greatest race on Earth

American memories
Land of honey and wild
American memories
Go back when we were a child

Ahhh, we struggled through the tough times
We laughed through the fun
American memories
We survived each and every one

I remember Disney
Donald and Mickey
Fantasy come true

Open road?
King Elvis it seemed
Made fantasy turn blue

Yet I read in the paper
And Hope told a joke
Some?

We've gone from Uncle Miltie
To Here's Johnny
Keepin' us up at night

American memories
Land of honey and wild
American memories
Go back when we were a child

I remember Sinatra
The Beatles and opera
And Dylan in the wind

The underdog dreams
The Celtic teams
And another Nichlaus win

Many great men
George, Abe, and Ben
The farmer, the teacher, the free

Yeah I read in a book
About when the world shook
Come on and sing along with me

American memories
Land of honey and wild
American memories
Go back when we were a child

American memories
Land of honey and wild
American memories
Go back when we were a child

American memories
Land of honey and wild
American memories
Go back when we were a child
