"America Will Survive"
by Hank Williams Jr.

People think we're nearing the end of time
Cos we're all together now we've drawn the line
Our flag is up the stock markets down
But now we're united from the country to the town
We live back in the woods you see
Big city problems never bothered me
But the world has changed and so have I
And America can survive, America will survive!

We can plow our fields all day long
We can catch catfish from dusk 'til dawn
Yeah, we have toughed it out a time or two
Aint too many things these boys and girls can't do
We grow good ol' tomatoes, we got hometown pride
And America can survive, America is gonna survive

'Cause you can't scare us out, you can't make us run
What we got here is freedom and fun
We say grace and we say "ma'am"
If they don't like that, we don't give a damn
We came from the West Virginia coal mines
The Rocky Mountains and the big city skylines
We can hit back and we're gonna be fine
'Cause this ol' country can survive,
America can survive

I had a good friend in New York City
Never called Hank, he called me hillbilly
My grandpa taught me how to live off the land
And his taught him to be a street-smart man
He used to send me pictures of the Broadway lights
And I'd send him some of that homemade scufflin' wine
He was lost like so many in the terrible strife
And we're all asking God, now why? Oh why?
I read, "A tooth for a tooth and an eye for an eye"
And that's an old slogan we're gonna revive
'Cause America can survive, America will survive

'Cause you can't scare us out, you can't make us run
We're them boys and girls that have freedom and fun
We say grace, we say "ma'am"
If they don't like that, we give less than a damn
We're from North California and South Alabam'
And all they've done is unite the whole land
There's no more Yankees and Rebels this time
But one united people that stand behind
America can survive, America will survive
America can survive, America is gonna survive
