Things of America
by David Kraai

You can't be mad at a cowboy
Or a tumbleweed that is rolling home
Just like you can't be mad at that old oak tree
'cause these are things of America

You can't be mad at a blue eyed bird
Or a homestead or a ranch
Just like you can't be mad at Nashville for its music
'cause these are things of America

These are things of America
Not these wars that separate and divide us
These are things of America
Not these wars that keep you from me

You can't be mad that New Orleans means jazz
Or that the Delta's got the blues
Just like you can't be mad that Detroit's got a Motown sound
'cause these are things of America

These are things of America
Not these wars that separate and divide us
These are things of America
Not these wars that keep you from me

These are things of America
Salt on your watermelon or a cup of sweet tea
These are things of America
Not these wars that keep you from me
