  • Lyrics: CAPTAIN AMERICA (G/C/D) What they've done to my country seems a shame Stolen homes and money Disappearing into shadows without blame A soldier died five minutes ago So another suit and tie could run by and collect his pound of gold "But if Captain America was real There'd be someone to fight the endless schemes and shady deals We'd be united by the spirit of a conscience, a star and a shield If Captain America was real" Now they treat our constitution like a joke Under pretenses of our good Just another liberal mirror, more conservative smoke No one who calls themselves a leader does a damn thing like they should "But if Captain America was real There'd be someone to fight the doubts and fears that people feel Under twilights last gleaming on a circle of steel If Captain America was real" What they've done to that Eagle is a crime They've plucked out all his feathers and then left him cold and blind A bank just took a family farm right now And nobody gives a damn about the where, why or how "But if Captain America was real There'd be someone to remind us that we used to hold ideals But they'd shoot him in the head and then confiscate his shield If Captain America was real Yeah, wishful thinkin', if Captain America was real!
