lyrics

My country
Different things to different folks
To some it's the shining city
To some it's the butt of jokes
To some it's the Great Satan
I suppose that could be true
To others it's the garden
I can see that too

My country
Has been there when the chips were down
Unless of course it was the one
Who threw those chips around
Not that one up on it's shoulder
Or that heart up on it's sleeve
My country
Home of the brilliant and brave
Land of the dim and free

The common thread which binds us all
Is fragile, frail, and slight
Pulled tighter than a fiddle string
Across this great divide

My country
It's got a fever and a cough
Watch it roll on 'till it's better
Or the wheel's come off
But my country's where the tired and poor
Still come to cast their lot
It's anything to any one
There ain't nothing that it's not
