Rumors speed through this no-stoplight town at
100 miles per hour.
She said, that he said, that I said,
“We need to get us some life in this here town,”
When in fact my words are,
“I love this town and would spend the rest of my life here if I could.”
With the painted red sky in the morning,
We are the people who tell the sailors to take warning.
With the red sky at night;
In the moon and stars we will delight.
It will be in this farm land,
I will raise my children and say
“I am proud to be an American!”
