about

American Dream - The title track with echoes of Mellencamp, Springsteen and Woody Guthrie’s This Land Is Your Land is a blue-collar folk anthem and Country Rock rave-up all in one. It wades into the current socio-economic and political climate, asking tough questions and giving voice to the working and middle class along the way. It expresses the resiliency of the American spirit as it stands today and examines whether the American Dream is still attainable or even a realistic possibility at all.

lyrics

AMERICAN DREAM written by Roger Campo / ASCAP

I’ve been working on
My American dream
Trying to figure out
How to make it real
And if I should believe
Yeah well I’ll be working on
My American dream
Trying to figure out
How to make it real
And if I should believe

I seen people on the job
Yeah people working hard
Oh But these people
Ain’t getting very far

No they’re up against something
something they can’t see
Systems rigged and corrupted
By power and greed

Oh but they’ll keep working on
Their American dream,
Trying to figure out,
How to make it real,
and if they should believe
Yeah well they’ll keep working on
Their American dream,
Trying to figure out,
How to make it real,
and if they should believe

Should we believe
In this dream at any cost
Are we chasing - A promise that’s
Already lost

Hold on - Hold strong - I got many mouths to feed
Hold on – Hold strong - They’re all counting on me
Hold on – Hold strong - Till I get the job done
Hold on – Hold strong - Until then I’ll keep on

My American dream
Trying to figure out, How to make it real
And if I should believe

Yeah, well I’ll be working on, My American dream
Trying to figure out, How to make it real
And if I should believe

Yeah, well I’ll be working on, My American dream
Trying to figure out, How to make it real
And if I should believe
Yeah trying to figure how to make it real and if I should believe
