America: Tin Man

Happy Birthday United States of America! To celebrate this county's birthday here is a song that I believe resonates well to what this country represents.   Even though it's not clear if that's the case here with such obscure lyrics from this aptly named '70s iconic rock group America.  I always think of the greatness of this country whenever I hear all of their songs.  This great song was released in 1974 and written by band member Dewey Bunnell and produced by George Martin, who also plays the piano on the recorded version. The song's title and some its lyrics refer to the Tin Woodman from The Wizard of Oz. I have to say that to me The Tin Man is America.  Enjoy the 4th of July holidays!
