    Lyrics

    I was 10
    I was thin
    I was playin first base
    With a second hand glove
    And dirt on my face
    In nowhere Virginia
    Who'd ever figure that kid in the yard
    Would go very far
    Cuz 419 Lakewood had no silver spoons
    Just an old beat up upright
    That played outta tune
    Now I'm singin and livin the life that I love
    And when I count my blessings
    I thank God I was...

    *Chorus*
    An American child
    An American child
    Cuz dreams can grow wild
    Born inside an American Child

    7 pounds 3 ounces
    She's got my nose
    And she's into my heart
    As deep as it goes
    With a promise that's more than just someone's last name
    Anyone's equal
    In late August came...

    *Chorus*
    An American child
    An American child
    Cuz dreams can grow wild
    Born inside an American Child

    My grandfather would've been 80 today
    But in '45
    He fell down beside...

    *Chorus*
    An American child
    An American child
    Cuz dreams can grow wild
    Born inside an American Child
