Nitty Gritty Dirt Band – American Dream


American Dream by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

I beg your pardon, mama, what did you say?
My mind was drifting off on Martinique Bay
It’s not that I’m not interested, you see
Augusta, Georgia is just no place to be
I think Jamaican in the moonlight
Sandy beaches, drinking rum every night
We got no money, mama, but we can go
We’ll split the difference, go to Coconut Grove
Keep on talking, mama, I can hear
Your voice, it tickles down inside of my ear
I feel a tropical vacation this year
Might be the answer to this hillbilly fear
I think Jamaican in the moonlight
Sandy beaches, drinking rum every night
We got no money, mama, but we can go
We’ll split the difference, go to Coconut Grove
Voila! An American Dream
Well, we can travel girl, without any means
When it’s as easy as closing your eyes
And dream…
