America's Waiting For Me

"I originally wrote this for a music competition hosted by Chevy car & trucks. They were looking for road songs (that mentioned their name) to put on a compilation disc. Didn't win the contest, but ended up with a song that really sums up my current state of frustration & relentless determination!"

AMERICA'S WAITING FOR ME

I've been working 2 jobs
Aint no time to sleep
I got nothing to show
By the end of the week
I feel stuck like a truck in the mud
Gotta break away
I gotta make my move
Gotta make it today

(chorus)
Gonna pack my Chevy
I'm way past ready
To show the world what I can be
This town is alright
But I'm leaving tonight
Cause AMERICA'S WAITING FOR ME
It's my time, to shine
Like a rocket in the sky
I'm ready for a whole new scene
Remember my name
You'll hear it one day
Cause AMERICA'S WAITING FOR ME


I got big ideas
Wanna make something of my life
But people round' here say
“Just be happy with your 9 to 5”
But I can't end up like the old man I
Crumpled on the couch
Talking bout the life he never lived
We get one chance only
I aint gonna blow it
Cause it might not come around again
