Which way to America
(v. reid)

I look at the t.v.
Your america’s doing well
I look out the window
My america’s catching hell

I just want to know which way do i go to get to your america?
I just want to know which way do i go to get to your america?

I change the channel
Your america’s doing fine
I read the headlines
My america’s doing time

I just want to know which way do i go to get to your america?
I just want to know which way do i go to get to your america?

Go west young, go west young man

Don’t want to crossover
But how do i keep from going under?

Where is my picket fence?
My long, tall glass of lemonade?
Where is my vcr, my stereo, my t.v. show?

I look at the t.v.
I don’t see your america
I look out the window
I don’t see your america

I want to know how to get to your america
I want to know how to get to your america
America
