Align:    
  • [Intro]
  • Hold on, don't fight your war alone
  • Halo around you, don't have to face it on your own
  • We will win this fight, let all souls be brave
  • We'll find a way to heaven, we'll find a way
  • [Verse 1]
  • War is old, so is sex, let's play God, you go next
  • Hands go up, men go down, try my luck, stand my ground
  • Die in church, live in jail say her name, twice in hell
  • Uncle Sam kissed a man, Jim Crow Jesus rose again
  • [Pre-Chorus]
  • I like my woman in the kitchen
  • I teach my children superstitions
  • I keep my two guns on my blue nightstand
  • A pretty young thang, she can wash my clothes
  • But she'll never ever wear my pants
  • [Chorus]
  • I pledge allegiance to the flag
  • Learned the words from my mom and dad
  • Cross my heart and I hope to die
  • With a big old piece of American pie
  • Love me baby, love me for who I am
  • Fallen angels singing, "Clap your hands"
  • Don't try to take my country, I will defend my land
  • I'm not crazy, baby, naw, I'm American
  • I'm American, I'm American, I'm American
  • [Verse 2]
  • Seventy-nine cent to your dollar
  • All that bullshit from white-collars
  • You see my color before my vision
  • Sometimes I wonder if you will fly
  • Would it help you make a better decision?
  • [Chorus]
  • I pledge allegiance to the flag
  • Learned the words from my mom and dad
  • Cross my heart and I hope to die
  • With a big old piece of American pie
  • Just love me baby, love me for who I am
  • Fallen angels singing, "Clap your hands"
  • Don't try to take my country, I will defend my land
  • I'm not crazy, baby, naw, I'm American
  • I'm American, I'm American, I'm American
  • [Spoken Bridge]
  • Let me help you in here
  • Until women can get equal pay for equal work
  • This is not my America
  • Until same-gender loving people can be who they are
  • This is not my America
  • Until black people can come home from a police stop without being shot in the head
  • This is not my America
  • Until poor whites can get a shot at being successful
  • This is not my America
  • I can't hear nobody talkin' to me
  • [Chorus]
  • Just love me baby, love me for who I am
  • Fallen angels singing, "Clap your hands"
  • Don't try to take my country, I will defend my land
  • I'm not crazy, baby, naw
  • I'm American (love me baby)
  • I'm American (love me for who I am)
  • [Spoken Outro]
  • Until Latinos and Latinas don't have to run from walls
  • This is not my America
  • But I tell you today that the devil is a liar
  • Because it's gon' be my America before it's all over
  • Please sign your name on the dotted line
