American Music

Well a US soldier boy on leave in West Berlin
No music there that rocks, just a thousand violins
He wants to hear some American Music, American Music.
They want to hear that sound right from the USA

Well it can be sweet and lovely, it can be hard and mean
But one thing's for sure: it's always on the beam
They want to hear some American Music, American Music
They want to hear that sound right from the USA

It's a howl from the desert, the screams from the slums
The Mississippi rollin' to the beat of the drums
Because they're playing American Music, American Music
They want to hear that sound right from the USA

We got the Louisiana boogie and the Delta Blues
Country swing and rockabilly, too
We got jazz, country-western and Chicago blues
It's the greatest music that you ever knew
Well it's American Music, it's American Music It's American Music
It's the greatest sound right from the USA

Well a US soldier boy has to stop right in his tracks
When he hears that crazy beat, he turns and doubles back
Because they're playing American Music, American Music
The whole world digs that sound from the USA
