Songtext:

Born down in a dead man's town
The first kick I took was when I hit the ground
End up like a dog that's been beaten too much
Till you spend half your life just to cover it up now

Got in a little hometown jam
So they put a rifle in my hand
Sent me off to a foreign land
To go and kill the yellow man

Refrein:
Born in the USA
I was born in the USA
I was born in the USA
Born in the USA now

Come back home to the refinery
Hiring man says: Son if it was up to me
Went down to see my V.A. man; he said
Son, don't you understand now

Refrein

I had a brother at Khesan
Fighting off the Viet Cong
They're still there, he's all gone

Refrein
(with last line: I'm a long gone daddy in the USA now)

He had a woman that he loved in Saigon
I got a picture of him in her arms now

Refrein
(with last line: I'm a cool rockin' daddy in the USA now)

Down in the shadow of the penitentiary
Out by the gas fires of the refinery
I'm ten years burning down the road
Nowhere to run, ain't nowhere to go
