Rodney Atkins - It's America Lyrics

Drivin' down the street today I saw a sign for lemonade
They were the cutest kids I'd ever seen in this front yard
As they handed me my glass, smilin' thinkin' to myself
Man, what a picture-perfect postcard this would make of America

It's a high school prom, it's a Springsteen song, it's a ride in a Chevrolet
It's a man on the moon and fireflies in June and kids sellin' lemonade
It's cities and farms, it's open arms, one nation under God
It's America

Later on when I got home, I flipped the TV on
I saw a little town that some big twister tore apart
And people came from miles around just to help their neighbors out
And I was thinkin' to myself I'm so glad that I live in America

It's a high school prom, it's a Springsteen song, it's a ride in a Chevrolet
It's a man on the moon and fireflies in June and kids sellin' lemonade
It's cities and farms, it's open arms, one nation under God
It's America!

Now we might not always get it all right
There's no place else I'd rather build my life

'Cause it's a kid with a chance, it's a rock 'n roll band
It's a farmer cuttin' hay
It's a big flag flyin' in a summer wind
Over a fallen hero's grave

It's a high school prom, it's a Springsteen song
It's a welcome home parade, yeah
It's a man on the moon and fireflies in June and kids sellin' lemonade
It's cities and farms, it's open arms, one nation under God
It's America! It's America! Oh, oh yeah, woo!

Rodney Atkins It's America Comments
  1. smashism

    This is the #1 worst song I've ever heard.

  2. Luke C

    would be improved by leaving god out of it. not everyone follows it, nor should we be ruled by 'god' or religion.

  3. Joseph Litke

    this song is true its AMERICA

  4. Patrick Glass

    I’m proud American and proud country boy love to be in the great usa

  7. ranger fanboy

    1:26 I attended a free concert in Gatlinburg where he performed this song shortly after the fire of 2016 and he replaced the word twister with fire, that hit home for us❤

  8. Elizabeth Narrajos


  9. Filip Červeň

    Song is great, but comments lack pessimists. Yall know this all is just one face of America. The other face is as fearful as this face is beautiful. I would describe US as country of both extremes.

  10. ValeriusYciox

    I am not American. I am Austrian, but I just don't feel like it. As soon as I'm done with school, I'm coming over to you, beautiful USA! Wait for me! The Aerican way of life, is the only way of life. I want to be a part of that one big dream, one nation, under god.

  11. Ultraviolet Morgan

    "Its Propaganda"

  12. QSH6H

  16. MrJab4309

    Anyone ever notice how little he actually plays his guitar in his videos...90% of the time he's slinging it around his back or resting his hand on it.

  17. Tom thx

    To hell with mentioning Springsteen. He isn't even American anymore. He's a died in the wool Liberal. And Chevies are no good either.

  18. liveoutloudhd

    If you are an American, read the comments here from those who are not, and kiss the ground everyday in thankful praise to He who has made you so...

  19. Hannah Fries

    This is the country music lover's American dream.

  20. Roofline Studios

    When Trump says Make America Great Again, this is the America he is talking about. Amazing how liberals are against it

    Patrick Y

    They only want to take our guns and to soften us towards the UN, because the UN wants to conquer us, because we are the last place on Earth where you can say and do what you want

  50. jennadyann walker

  56. George Van Dean

    This song is lame, nothing to do with the message, just not good lyrics, seems like it took 5 minutes to write

    I been thinking as american we should not make fun of the government because those are men and women like you and me working hard to get a pay check. I not saying go all out on them and agree to ever thing they say you still a american. But i also saying when you think about it. If you really want to help america star by saying thank you. With a smile. Love everyone. Be nice to the bully. You dont know there story and before you start to judge people know people-AJ

    My family has had people such as my Grandfathers who Served at least 3-6 Years in Service. One was in the Army and the Other was in the Marine Corps. I RP Quite a lot. SO when it comes down to World War 2 and Vietnam Era Role-plays, Always America. WWII RP's, 101st Screaming Eagles Airborne Division. Vietnam, 7th Armored Division, or and Infantry Division.

    I love my nation.

    Here's a quote from the Famous George Smith Patton.
    "The Objective of War Is, Not to Die for your Country, but to Make the Other Poor Bastard Die for His."

  79. Ricky

    The 128 people who disliked this must be communist

  90. FreeRepublicUSA

    I live 3 miles from the Mandalay in las Vegas where some liberal setup murdered my beloved Americans. makes me like this music even more. You can shake the love we have for our Nation and it's true free God GIVEN destiny. We love God first and foremost. He blesses us because He loves us. May THE USA humble herself, repent and Seek God's face....He will heal us and our land

  94. Kristin A.

    No matter what happens I will always love my country. to tho who say it has "collapsed" were still a baby country we are still learning.

  95. Vickie Terry

    most underrated country singer

  96. bio2020

    America messed up. It let in too many immigrants from too many different cultures in a very short amount of time.

  97. DarkFenix34512

    I remember my father telling how it seemed the country would collapse back when he was a teenager in the 60s with his buddies being drafted and he was three months from being drafted...things seemed bad, then in the 70s when the aftereffects of the 60s were almost decaying on every street, things seemed bad, and then the 80s when environments issues and corruptions and riots covered the news...things seemed bad, I remember watching movies released in the late 80s and early 90s that showed late 90s as a crime ridden war ridden corrupt society and that by 2000s, the world would be dead...things seemed bad. Yet, here we are, still a united, doing slightly better than we were, maybe not as well as we should, but effort counts toward something....keep trying, bring hope, don't spread fear and hate..

  98. len man

    This is what America is about till some who makes it to be.
