John, Elton - England And America Lyrics




Had some good times jumping ship
And showing up on shore
Just pocket change to get us by
A little bit of grease to help us slide
Give us a nickel and take your mark
To squeeze under the door

Caught some big ones
Reeled em in
And hung em out to dry
From little fish to bigger things
A welcome push
An empty swing
Given the chance we'd stop to sing
And watch the world go by

And I tried to take my time
To get back up, hold on and climb
Into the arms, you'll always find me
In England and America
(England and America)
It seems good to hold, to not let go
The safety net still hangs real low
And if I fall it's good to know
There's England and America

Showed our roots from time to time
And used it to ignite
Our wilder side to get up through
To push and pull, and come unglued
Mixture of red wine and blues
That run right through our lives

And I tried to take my time
To get back up, hold on and climb
Into the arms, you'll always find me
In England and America
(England and America)
It seems good to hold, to not let go
The safety net still hangs real low
And if I fall it's good to know
There's England and America

And I tried to take my time
To get back up, hold on and climb
Into the arms, you'll always find me
In England and America
(England and America)
It seems good to hold, to not let go
The safety net still hangs real low
And if I fall it's good to know
There's England and America
England and America
England and America

    Daniel Lee

    My favorite WCN track!

  4. Mark Deane

    Brilliant, can't understand why this and the other song Free & Easy weren't on the original album, these 2 outtakes are much better than all the songs on the album, only incliuded on the delux version

    Jay Burke

    my opinion a good heart wonderful crazy night looking up this song England and America are the best.

    Mark Deane it's true this song must be the frist single

    I completely agree. Both songs are better and more inspired than anything on the album. It's really one of his weakest albums ever and probably his last. I wasn't too happy with The Diving Board, but WCN really disappointed me.

    I've been an Elton fan for a good many years...this is common. Especially when he was with the original band (Nigel, Dee, Davey and Ray) they made so many great songs so quickly that they put original songs on the b-sides of the 45 singles, many better than songs that made the cut.

    007koko007 It’s way better than The Diving Board. That album sends me to sleep
