American Land(Live)

American Land(Live) - Bruce Springsteen

What is this land of America, so many travel there

 

I'm going now while I'm still young

my darling meet me there

 

Wish me luck my lovely

I'll send for you when I can

 

And we'll make our home in the American land

 

Over there all the woman wear silk

and satin to their knees

 

And children dear, the sweets

I hear, are growing on the trees

 

Gold comes rushing out

the river straight into your hands

 

If you make your home in the American land

 

There's diamonds in the sidewalks

 

there's gutters lined in song

 

Dear, I hear that beer flows through

the faucets all night long

 

There's treasure for the taking

 

for any hard working man

 

Who will make his home in the American land

 

I docked at Ellis Island in a city of light and spire

 

I wandered to the valley of red-hot steel and fire

 

We made the steel that built the cities

with the sweat of our two hands

And I made my home in the American land

 

There's diamonds in the sidewalk

 

there's gutters lined in song

 

Dear I hear that beer flows through

the faucets all night long

 

There's treasure for the taking

 

for any hard working man

 

Who will make his home in the American land

 

The McNicholas, the Posalski's, the Smiths, Zerillis too

 

The Blacks, the Irish, Italians

the Germans and the Jews

 

The Puerto Ricans, illegals, the Asians

Arabs miles from home

 

Come across the water with a fire down below

 

They died building the railroads

 

worked to bones and skin

 

They died in the fields and factories

names scattered in the wind

 

They died to get here a hundred years ago

they're dyin' now

 

The hands that built the country were always

trying to keep down

 

There's diamonds in the sidewalk

there's gutters lined in song

 

Dear I hear that beer flows through the faucets

all night long

There's treasure for the taking

for any hard working man

 

Who will make his home in the American land

Who will make his home in the American land

 

Who will make his home in the American land
