All-American Kid Lyrics by Garth Brooks


Garth Brooks Lyrics

All-American Kid Lyrics
Was the captain of the team his senior year
In his eyes on his helmet he had no fear
Down by a six ball on the ten
Said huddle up boys we've got a game to win
Snapped the ball
He looked left and right
Nobody was open so he tucked in tight
And before them boys hanging on to him
The clock ran out as he ran it in

And the whole town cheers
And his mama cried
And they rushed down field
And they raised him high
Got his picture in the paper and the headline read All American Hometown Kid

He was recruited by the best schools in the land
He decided he'd sign with his Uncle Sam
He kissed mama goodbye in their living room
Said dad don't worry I'll be home soon

And the whole town cheers
And his mama cried
And they lined the street
Just to say goodbye
Got his picture in the paper and the headline read Come Back All American Hometown Kid
(Instrumental)
Three tours of duty
And a silver star
Brought him back home with his battle scars
He stopped off the plane
In his combat boots
He saluted the red white and blue

And the whole town cheered
And his mama cried
Another hometown boy made it home alive
Got his picture in the paper and the headline read Welcome Back Home All American Kid
Yeah, this song is for those who never did come back all American kids
