The Hands That Built America

  • Oh my love
    It’s a long way we’ve come
    From the freckled hills to the steel and glass canyons
    From the stony fields, to hanging steel from the sky
    From digging in our pockets, for a reason not to say goodbye

    These are the hands that built America
    Russian, Sioux, Dutch, Hindu
    Polish, Irish, German, Italian

    I last saw your face in a watercolour sky
    As sea birds argued a long goodbye
    I took your kiss on the spray of the new line star
    You gotta live with your dreams
    Don’t make them so hard

    And these are the hands that built America
    These are the hands that built America
    The Irish, the Blacks, the Chinese, the Jews
    Korean, Hispanic, Muslim, Indian

    Of all of the promises
    Is this one we can keep?
    Of all of the dreams
    Is this one still out of reach?

    Its early fall
    There’s a cloud on the New York skyline
    Innocence dragged across a yellow line
    These are the hands that built America
    These are the hands that built America
