Born in the USAMature

Born in a dead man's town
US troops had just hit the ground
In a eastern foreign land
Somewhere called Vietnam

Born in the USA
Taking my daddy's life away
We're at home and he is  gone
Off to fight the Taliban 

Years on and another war
Same fighters on a different shore
They put a rifle in his hand
Off to school the Afghans

Born in the USA
Taking my daddy's life away
We're at home and he is  gone
Off to fight the Taliban 

I've got a daddy in Afghanistan 
Tryin' to make a better land
When they're gone they'll be no change
Just an awful lot of pain 

Born in the USA
Taking my daddy's life away
We're at home and he is  gone
Off to fight the Taliban

The End
