MONDAY MORNING MELODY: ALL-AMERICAN BOY BY STEVE GRAND

There has never been an openly gay male country music star but Steve Grand hopes to change that.

The singer released his song, All-American Boy, on Facebook this week and the song has quickly caught on with more than 75,000 views in less than two days.

He wrote on his Facebook page: 'This is my story, my song, my dream.’

The song is about a gay man (Grand) who bonds over drinking with one of his buddies. They laugh, they touch, they skinny dip.

But when the gay man goes in for the kiss, things become more clear.

All American Boy


VERSE 1

Ripped Jeans, only drinks whiskey
I find him by the fire while his girl was getting friskey, ohh
I say we go this road tonight

He smiles, his arms around her
but his eyes are holdin me, just a captive to his wonder, ohh
I say we go this road tonight

PRE-CHORUS

now I know that that's your girl, I mean no disrespect
The way that shirt hugs you chest boy, I just won't forget
I'll be sittin her, drinking my whiskey
I won't say goodnight unless I think ya might miss me, ohh

CHORUS

Be my All-American boy tonight
where everyday's the 4th of July
and its alright, alright
And we can keep this up till the morning light
and you can hold me deep in your eyes
and its alright, alright
be my, be my
my All-American boy

VERSE 2

Ripped jeans, tight shirt
he lights a cigarette you know I'm glad that she can't stand it, ohh
I drink the moonlight from his eyes

Now hold there, just a moment
I want to take this in now we don't need no photo of it, no
we should go this road tonight

PRECHURS 2

now I know that that's your girl, and I don't give a damn
she's been cusin and cryin, she don't know what she has
so I'll be, sittin here, tryin hold down my whiskey,
you tell your girl good night cause somebody'd like to kiss me, ohh

CHORUS

Be my All-American boy tonight
where everyday's the 4th of July
and its alright, alright
And we can keep this up till the morning light
and you can hold me deep in your eyes
and its alright, alright
be my, be my
my All-American boy

BRIDGE:

Of all the girls and boys to look my way
Ain't no body ever hit me this way
so won't you come back with me
and lay with me a while

I'm gonna wrestle you out of them clothes,
leave that beautiful body exposed,
and you can have my heart and my soul and my body...
just be mine

GUITAR SOLO


DOWN CHORUS

Be my All-American boy tonight
baby you light my fire
its gonna be alright, alright!

CHORUS

Be my All-American boy tonight
where everyday's the 4th of July
and its alright, alright
And we can keep this up till the morning light
and you can hold me deep in your eyes
and its alright, alright
be my, be my...
just, be my, be my...
my All-American boy
