John Cougar Mellencamp
R O C K In The U S A A Salute To '60s Rock

And they come from the smaller towns
Beat up cars with guitars and rummers
Goin' crack boom bam

CHORUS
R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.
R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.
R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A. yeah yeah!
Rockin' in the U.S.A.

Said goodbye to their families
Said goodbye to their friends
With pipe dreams in their heads
And very little money in their hands
Some are black and some are white
Ain't too proud to sleep on the floor tonight
With the blind faith of Jesus you know that they just might be
Rockin' in the U.S.A.
Hey!

Voices from nowhere
And voices from the larger towns
Filled our head full of dreams
Turned our world upside down

There was Frankie Lyman, Bobby Fuller, Mitch Ryder
(They were rockin')
Jackie Wilson, Shangri-Las, Young Rascals
(They were rockin')
Spotlight on Martha Reeves
Let's don't forget James Brown
Rockin' in the U.S.A.
Rockin' in the U.S.A.
Hey!

CHORUS
