American Idol

Written By: Daniel Gramer/Daniel Schrade

AMERICAN IDOL
(Gramer/Schrade)

1st Verse:

In a Chevy, in the morning
Rushing down the interstate
It’s a big day at the office
And she’s 20 minutes late

‘Cause with three kids and no husband
things don’t always go as planned
And while she’s driving, she is praying
That her boss will understand

1st Bridge:

It’s not easy but she wouldn’t want it any other way
And she thanks GOD they’re together at the end of every day

Ref.:

And to me – she's an AMERICAN IDOL
She ain’t in the Hall of Fame
And you will never know her name
But I think that she's a hero
You won’t find on TV
She’s an AMERICAN IDOL to me

2nd Verse:

On a tractor, in West Texas
He is holding out for rain
If the weather isn’t changing
All his work will be in vain

No vacations and no weekends
For the past 25 years
That’s his life but he ain’t leaving,
‘cause all he cares about is here

2nd Bridge:

And he really can’t remember if it’s ever been this dry
and he keeps that tractor rolling ‘neath that blue clear Texas sky.

Ref.:

And to me – he's an AMERICAN IDOL
He ain’t in the Hall of Fame
And you will never know his name
But I think that he's a hero
You won’t find on TV
He’s an AMERICAN IDOL to me

3rd Verse:

In a Humvee, in the desert
many thousand miles from home
He is fighting for our freedom
With his boots and helmet on

After all the things he's seen there
and after all the friends he's lost
You'd expect him to be fed up
but he ain’t ready to give up

3rd Bridge:

When he sees the smiling faces of the little boys and girls
he knows he can make a difference and change the face of this whole world

3rd Ref.:

And to me – he's an AMERICAN IDOL
He’s forever staying true
to the red, white, and blue
There's no doubt that he's a hero
way to good for TV
He's an AMERICAN IDOL to me
He’s an AMERICAN IDOL to me
