Lyrics - Back in the U.S.A.

Back in the U.S.A.
(written by Chuck Berry, from 2004's The Meaning of Live)

uh huh hey hey
uh huh hey hey
uh huh hey hey
hey hey hey hey
Oh well, Oh well I feel so good today
uh huh hey hey
Well I just touched the ground on an international runway
uh huh hey hey
Jet propelled back home from overseas to the U.S.A.
uh huh hey hey
New York, Los Angeles oh how I yearned for you
uh huh hey hey
Detroit, Chicago, Chattanooga, Baton Rouge
uh huh hey hey
How I longed to be back in my home at O.C.U.*
uh huh hey hey
Did I miss the skyscrapers? Did I miss the long freeway?
uh huh hey hey
From the coast of California to the jaws of the Delaware bay
uh huh hey hey
Never knew a better life, I did, till I got back to the U.S. of A*
Oh alright, take it Walter

Iím lookiní hard for a drive-in Iím searching for a corner cafť
uh huh hey hey
Where the hamburgers sizzle on an open grill night and day
uh huh hey hey
(Make mine with cheese!)
And the jukebox is jumping with records like in the U.S.A.
uh huh hey hey
Iím so glad Iím living in the U.S.A.
Iím so glad Iím living in the U.S.A.
Well anything you want to do right here in the U.S.A.
