The American Dream Lyrics - Hank Williams, Jr.

Hank Williams, Jr. A Country Boy Can Survive (Box Set) cover art
Release information
length: 2:18
Too many lawyers in football
Baseballs gotta few
The pitcher got a million dollars
and the quarterback he got 2
Pitcher threw his arm away
and the quarterback ruined his knee
And this they did so they could live the american dream
Now there are some preachers on tv with a suit and a tie and a vest
they want you to send your money to the lord but they give you their address
Cause all of your donations are completely tax free
God bless you all but most of all send your money
Do you really want it?
Do you really need it?
Ya gotta keep on grindin just ta try ta keep it
Ya got no time for yourself ya got more ba roe jim beam
Your goin crazy dreamin
The american dream
Reagan is a cuttin the budget makin the democrats scream
Says we gotta control inflation Quit spendin our money on everything
But this years tax increase why its the biggest in history
Round and a round we go where we stop who knows
The american dream
Do you really want it?
Do you really need it?
Ya gotta keep on grindin just ta try ta keep it
We got no time for ourselves ya got more ba roe jim beam
Your goin crazy dreamin
The american dream
Your goin crazy dreamin
The american dream
Hail to the chief
he he hell yeah
he he
