Off the Steve Miller, "Sailor" album or are you thinking about the Chuck Berry tune? Either works, both are good. Steve Miller had a kick- ass band in those days!

He's done so many we could pick - songs that address the people and not the abstract idea of what a nation could be ...

There is a song at the end of National Lampoon's European Vacation. "Back In America"
Great words and tune. I also love the images shown while it's playing and the credits roll.
The last picture is Jimmy Cagney saluting. Priceless.

Happy 4th of July one and all.
Stay safe

Yep, that's what I like about Land Of Hope And Dreams:

This train carries saints and sinners
This train carries lost souls
etc.

Kinda like The Statue of Liberty "Give me your tired, your hungry, your poor" - it involves the people, all people ...
