Leavin’ New York City with a tank of gas
Got my bag and my guitar, I’m gonna get out fast
Going ‘cross the border to the Jersey Shore
On down to Philly where they know the score
Pittsburgh, DC, Ohio
Tell me pretty baby do you wanna go
On an American Ride

Headin’ down to Memphis on the 419
Looking for Elvis Presley and the Reverend Green
Passin’ through Kentucky ‘cross the county line
The Brothers on the radio sure sound fine
Nashville, Charlotte, say goodbye
We’re goin’ out tonight just you and I
On an American Ride

So ride, ride, ride with me baby, come on
Ride, ride, ride with me baby, come on
These roads can take us coast to coast
From points unknown all the way back home
On an American Ride

Rolling by the river down to Baton Rouge
The music in the Delta gonna cure my blues
Jackson, Mississippi, won’t ya make my day
We’re takin’ 95 down to FLA
Once we hit the Keys gonna make a toast
Head out west for the California coast
On an American Ride

Mobile, Alabama, won’t you sing my song
Louisiana, Oklahoma, all night long
Crossin’ into Texas, don’t hesitate
Freedom waits by the Golden Gate
Midnight, the desert, Santa Fe
Utah, Arizona, yeah we’re on our way
On an American Ride

So ride, ride, ride with me baby, come on
Ride, ride, ride with me baby, come on
Where the good, the bad and the in between
All live together on your TV screen
On an American Ride

The moon is on the rise
The country’s in disguise
I’ve got the motor runnin’ babe
There’s magic in your eyes

We’re gonna hit the beach in the L.A. sun
San Francisco, Carson City, Oregon
Rollin’ ‘cross the plains through the great Sioux land
Good a place as anywhere to make our stand
Some might say that it’s all a dream
Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King
From rock’n’roll music to the bebop jazz
To the Unknown Soldier givin’ all he has
From Ellis Island to the Redwood trees
Your untamed beauty’s got me on my knees
On an American Ride

So ride, ride, ride with me baby, come on
Ride, ride, ride with me baby, come on

(2013, Willie Nile)
