I'm American made
Bud Light, Chevrolet
My momma taught me wrong from right
I was born in the South
Sometimes I have a big mouth
When I see something that I don't like
I gotta say it
Well, we've been driving this road
For a mighty long time
Paying no mind to the signs
Well, this neighborhood's changed
It's all been rearranged
We left that change somewhere behind

Slow down. You're gonna crash!
Baby, you're a-screaming it's a blast, blast, blast
Look out babe, you've got your blinders on
Every body's looking for a way to get real gone
Real gone
Real gone

Well, there is a new cat in town
He's got high-paid friends
Thinks he's gonna change history
You think you know him so well
Yeah, you think he's so swell
But he's just perpetuating prophecy
(Come on, now!)

Slow down, you're gonna crash!
Baby you're a-screaming, it's a blast, blast, blast
Look out. You've got your blinders on
Everybody's looking for a way to get real gone
Real gone
Real gone.
Real gone.


Well, you can say you want
But you can't say it 'round here
'Cause they'll catch you and give you a whippin'
Well, I believe I was right
When I said you were wrong
You didn't like the sound of that...
Now, did you?

Slow down, you're gonna crash!
Baby you're a-screaming, it's a blast, blast, blast
Look out. You've got your blinders on
Everybody's looking for a way to get real gone

Well, here I come, and I'm so not scared
Got my pedal to the metal, got my hands in the air
Look out, you take your blinders off
Everybody's looking for a way to get real gone
Real gone!
Real gone!
Real gone!
Real gone!

Billy Ray Cyrus version

Country singer Billy Ray Cyrus covered the song for the Disneymania 6 album. It was made into a music video directed by Trey Fanjoy. It was released as a digital single only on June 18, 2008, after it was featured on the Country Sings Disney in compilation.

The song is also available on his 2009 album Back to Tennessee.

This version is nearly the same as the original, but the lyric "Bud Light, Chevrolet" was changed to "Apple pie, Chevrolet" to make it more appropriate for children, because they're not old enough to drink alcohol (e.g. Bud Light beer).

Honor Society version

Pop/rock group Honor Society covered the song for the Disneymania 7 album. It was released as a digital single on March 9, 2010.
