Last week after Chuck Berry's passing, many articles and tributes were written and one headline in Rolling Stone magazine said, "His Influence is Everywhere."
And that includes influence on the Beatles --
"Back In The U.S.S.R." was a sort of take-off on "Back In The U.S.A."
Oh well, oh well, I feel so good today
We just touched ground on an international runway
Jet propelled back home, from overseas to the U.S.A.
New York, Los Angles, oh how I yearned for you
Detroit, Chicago, Chattanooga, Baton Rouge
God I long just to be at my home back in ol' St. Lou!
Did I miss the skyscrapers, did I miss the long freeway?
From the coast of California to the shores of the Delaware Bay
You can bet your life I did, till I got back to the U.S.A.
Lookin' hard for a drive-in, searching for a corner café
Where hamburgers sizzle on the open grill night and day
Yeah and the jukebox jumpin' with records back in the U.S.A.!
Well, I'm so glad I'm livin' in the U.S.A!
Yes, I'm so glad I'm livin' in the U.S.A.
Anything you want, they got it right here in the U.S.A.
I'm so glad!
(I'm so glad!)
I'm so glad! ...
