A wise man was telling stories to me
About the places he had been to and the things that he had seen

A quiet voice is singing something to me
An age old song 'bout the home of the brave in this land here of the free
One time one night in America

A lady dressed in white with the man she loves
Standing along the side of their pick up truck
A shot rang out in the night
Just when everything seemed right
Another headline written down in America

The guy that lived next door in three o five
Took the kids to the park and disappeared 'bout half past nine
