Songtekst

I was walking, just alone to Georgia
Right about a hundred miles from Atlanta's lines
Early evening, sun began to dyin'
Over my shoulder in the hills behind

Just-a walkin' with my shadow
Steppin' out before me
Listening for a way down
I'm coming down the road

But I guess I picked a bad day
For walking down to Georgia
'Cause I haven't seen a way here
Where the Georgia lawn, oh no

Sweet America (Oho)
Sweet America (Mmm-mmm)
Sweet America
Mmmm

As I stopped to rest
Saw it surrounded me
Painting all the mountains
In the American skies

An American sunset
Turned me on forever
I could feel the day come
For the very first time

He was just a singer
Lookin' for his freedom
Don't need a better reason
Than the life he got

You can just imagine
How good it made me feel inside
Turned out that I had surprised
Still a line for America, oh yeah (America!)

So I went to sleep
In the arms of America
Sweet America
Beneath American skies

And as I lay there
I could feel America
In love with America
For the very first time

Sweet America (Sweet, sweet, sweet America)
Sweet America (Sweet, sweet, sweet America)
Sweet America (Sweet, sweet, sweet America)
For the very first time

Livin' on America
Sweet America
Sweet America
Yeah, yeah, for the very first time
I'm livin' every day, yes, I'm livin' in the heart

For America, America
Sweet America, alright
Sweet America, yeah
Yeah, for the very first time

Let me hear you sing about
America, alright, yeah
Sweet America (You're sounding good)
Sweet America, yeah
Yeah, for the very first time

Talkin' 'bout America, alright
Sweet America (Sweet, sweet, sweet America)
Sweet America (Sweet, sweet, sweet America)
Oh, for the very first time

Let me tell you it's America, America, America
Sweet America (Sweet, sweet, sweet America)
Sweet America (Sweet, sweet, sweet America)
Yeah, oh, for the very first time

Sing a song!
Sweet America (Sweet, sweet, sweet America)
Sweet America (Sweet, sweet, sweet America)
Sweet America (Sweet, sweet, sweet America)
For the very first time (Sweet, sweet, sweet America)

Sweet America (Sweet, sweet, sweet America)
Sweet America (Sweet, sweet, sweet America)
Sweet America (Sweet, sweet, sweet America)
