American Thunder

All across the nation - everywhere you go

Every race and occupation is turning up the radio

Listening to the music of America

And everybody's singing along

 

From deep down in the country - to the heart of rock and roll

From the Mississippi Delta Blues to da hip-hop funk and soul

You can hear the sound of freedom

In everybody's favorite song

 

Every night is New Year's Eve, each day is the fourth of July

From New York to Los Angeles - C'mon Let's Ride

 

American Thunder - turn it up and shout it out loud

American Thunder - rollin' from town to town

 

Lynyrd Skynyrd made that Free Bird fly - Elvis is the king

You can hear it on the Opry and when Heavy Metal screams

This is hallowed ground, it's sacred Earth

Kool Herc made da hip-hop work

 

From the drums of our Native Sons

On down to the working class Joe

We stand united and we're always ready to roll

 

American Thunder - turn it up and shout it out loud

American Thunder - wild, free, and proud

 

American Thunder - turn it up and shout it out loud

American Thunder - rollin' from town to town

 

American Thunder - rockin' into the night

American Thunder - c'mon, everybody let's ride
