Back in the USA

July 3, 2016

“Back in the USA,” written and recorded by Chuck Berry. Released by Chess Records in 1959. The tune was reprised by Linda Ronstadt in 1978.

“Did I miss the skyscrapers, did I miss the long freeway?
From the coast of California to the shores of Delaware Bay
You can bet your life I did, till I got back to the U. S. A.

Looking hard for a drive-in, searching for a corner café
Where hamburgers sizzle on an open grill night and day
Yeah, and a juke-box jumping with records like in the U.S.A.”
