Lyrics

The American Way
Tim Mueting © Copyright 2011

I pledged allegiance to the flag every day
I grew up believing in the American Way
Still times got rough, and the jobs went away
I pledged allegiance to the flag every day

My daddy worked hard in the fields till he died
He never complained, too much pride
Momma was strong, lord she stood by his side
My daddy worked hard in the fields till he died

Chorus

I pledged allegiance to the flag every day
I grew up believing in the American Way
Still times got rough, and the jobs went away
I pledged allegiance to the flag every day

It wasn’t long before I was grown
Between two wars, protecting our home
I fought the good fight, no tellin’ who won
It wasn’t long before I was grown

Now I’m old and most my friends are gone
Not much to do, but I can’t let that get me down
Kids are so far, sometimes I get lonesome
Now I’m old and most my friends are gone

I pledged allegiance to the flag every day
I grew up believing in the American Way
Still times got rough, and the jobs went away
I pledged allegiance to the flag every day
Still times got rough, and the jobs went away
