Written by Jason Davis & Gary Leigh
This song is dedicated to those who have died, sacrificed, suffered, and given...for freedom.


If you see the wolves
Wonderin' where I've been
Tell 'em that I've headed south
Bound for Richmond, Danville by sundown
Across the Yadkin, down to MorganTown
Up on Kings Mt., died on a battle ground
I have not forgotten, anywhere I've been
The night is callin' me again
Bound for Richmond...
When the shots rang out
The canyons roared
Soldier down, hundreds and more
And the wounded cried, let freedom ring
While the buzzard fly, all the valley sing
Bound for Richmond...
If you see the wolves, wonderin' where I've been
Tell 'em that I've headed south
Tell 'em that I've headed south
Yea tell 'em that I headed south to write
The Great American
