"Back in the U.S.A" by Chuck Berry

In honor of Oldest Son who is returning from Italy tomorrow.

Written by Chuck Berry in 1959 after returning home after seeing how aboriginals in Australia lived. It was issued as a single in '59 and included on the Album More Chuck Berry in 1962.

Quintessential American Rock 'n Roll, the song highlights aspects of typical American life.

Linda Ronstadt actually had a bigger hit with it in 1978 on her double platinum album of the same name.
