Rancid – „New American” Lyrics


Rancid – „New American” Lyrics

Yankee cutter, trade wind breeze
Wayward soul on the 7 lost seas
We ran in boulder til it was time to go
Worked the Klondike in the ice and snow

As I watched the sun go down
The night is just begun
This is my home now
For I am a new American

Eddie the butcher was a stevedorulee
We sailed together to the Singapore shore
That’s where we met calico Jim
We drank his money and his bathtub gin

As I watched the sun go down
The night is just begun
This is my home now
For I am a new American

Sixteen days
Dead-end street
Ironclad
Pride of the fleet
As long as I can live to tell
The butcher and I can still raise hell

As I watched the sun go down
The night is just begun
This is my home now
For I am a new American
