UNDER THESE LIGHTS

INTRO
VERSE
Friday night—best girl by me
Grandstands are filling up nicely
Eight o’clock can’t get here fast enough
We been waiting on this all week long
Talking trash, hanging signs and painting cars
It’s just about time to get it on

God Bless the USA—‘round here we still pray

CHORUS
Under these lights—here in this town
We come together from miles around
Screaming loud—just to watch these boys
Knock each other down
Under these lights—come rain or shine
That whistle blows—hearts on the line
Hold nothing back
This is war—stars are born and heroes rise
Under these lights

VERSE
Blood, sweat, and tears’ll make you
Coach breathing down your neck will break you
No guts no glory how well I know
Some of them will wear blue collars
Others doctors, preachers lawyers
But tonight they’re dressed for the same show

Win or lose we play the game—sixty minutes not fifty-eight

(REPEAT CHORUS)

BRIDGE
Fighting for our pride—raise our banner high
Champions live or die—on this field tonight

INSTRUMENTAL

(REPEAT CHORUS)
