I was bor in the U.S.A. I was born in the U.S.A. Born in the U.S.A. Got in a little hometown jam so they put a Rifle in my hand Sent me off to a foreign land to go and kill the yellow man CHORUS Come back home to the refinery Hiring man says, "Son if it was up to me." Went down to see my V.A. man He said, "Son, don't you understand now." Had a brother at Khe Sahn fighting off the Viet Cong They're still there he's all gone He had a woman he loved in Saigon I got a picture of him in her aarms now Down in the shadow of the penitentiary Out by the gas fires of the refinery I'm ten years burniing down the road Nowhere to run ain't got nowhere to go CHORUS I'm a long gone Daddy in the U.S.A. Born in the U.S.A. Born in the U.S.A. Born in the U.S.A. I'm a cool rocking Daddy in the U.S.A.
