Living In America

Living In America

James Brown

Superhighways, coast to coast, easy takin' anywhere -
On the transcontinental overload
just slide behind the wheel.
How does it feel when there's no destination that's too far

And somewhere on the way
you might find out who you are.

Living in America, eye to eye, station to station.
Living in America, hand in hand, across the nation.
Living in America, got to have a celebration, rock my soul!

Smokestack, fatback, many miles of railroad track.
All-night radio keep on runnin' through your rock'n' roll soul.
All-night diners keep you awake
on a black coffee and a hard roll.
you might have to walk a fine line
you might take a hard line

But everybody's workin' overtime.
Living in America, eye to eye, station to station
I live in America, I live in America, wait a minute,
you may not be lookin' for the promised land

But you might find it anyway.
Under one of those old familiar names like,
New Orleans, New Orleans
Detroit City, Detroit City

Dallas, Dallas
Pittsburgh P. A., Pittsburgh P. A.

New York City, New York City
Kansas City, Kansas City

Atlanta, Atlanta.
Chicago and L. A.

Living in America, hit me, living in America, living in America.
I live in America, staying alive, we'll make the prime.
I live in America, hey
I know what it means.

Living in America, hit me, eye to eye, station to station.
Living in America, so nice, would you better stop?
Living in America, I feel good!
