Respond to this challenge, by either by using the prompt word made, or going with the above picture, or by means of the song ‘Looks Like We Made It’, or by going with another song by Barry Manilow, or anything else that you think fits.

I had never heard this song before but I thought it was pretty good…

“American Made”

It ain’t the money
It ain’t the fame
It’s a couple hundred folks like me out there
Screaming my last name
It ain’t the record sales
It’s my voice in the whipper wheels
200 years down a long dirt road
Where there used to be a moonshine still

American made
Professional grade
Yeah I’m built Ford tough
Ain’t much shit I can’t take
I got scars on my skin like my Chevy has dents
Getting covered in mud every damn weekend
I’m 10 foot tall
And American made

Red bone on the porch
Shotgun on the floor
With the safety turned off
And a lock screen door
You don’t wanna come
Snooping around my place
In the middle of nowhere surrounded by
Good ole boys in 4 wheel drives
That get down and dirty
But still sing Amazing Grace

American made
Professional grade
Yeah I’m built Ford tough
Ain’t much shit I can’t take
I got scars on my skin like my Chevy has dents
Getting covered in mud every damn weekend
I’m 10 foot tall
And American made
I’m 10 foot tall
And American made

Flag pole in the front yard flies with pride
Of the freedom of the place where I reside
And I clean up nice for church
Every Sunday
And we drop at half mass and bow our heads
For the good ones gone ’cause we all bleed red
When it’s said and done I’ll be in Heaven
Fishing up in the shade

American made
Professional grade
Yeah I’m built Ford tough
Ain’t much shit I can’t take
I got scars on my skin like my Chevy has dents
Getting covered in mud every damn weekend
I’m 10 foot tall
And American made
I’m 10 foot tall
And American made
I’m 10 foot tall
And American made
