American By Birth
Recorded by Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash
Written by Roger Wade

I'm gonna go down on the creek bank gather all my people
And pitch horseshoes until the sun goes down
Gonna barbeque my ribs eat potato salad
G7 C
Let the bird dogs run let the children sing Lord we're gonna get down

Yes we shall gather down in Dixie
Where my father and my children's feet have trod
We shall all sing hallelujah
G7 C
I'm American by birth and southern by the grace of God

I'm gonna slip off with my cousin for a little shot of bourbon
Listen to him stretch the truth for a little while
I'm gonna sneak up behind my baby and tell her that I love her
G7 C
I'm gonna lay her down in the hickory shade and watch my baby smile

Repeat #2 x2
