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
‘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
No matter if you’ve heard this powerful patriotic song a hundred times or if you’ve never heard it before, it’s always worth another listen.
