Song Lyrics

(These are the hands that reached so – ??)

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
(Washington tree, Washington tree now)
Hand… America…

Last saw your face in a watercolour sky
As sea birds argue, a long goodbye
I took your kiss, on the spray of the new land star
You gotta live with your dreams, don’t make them so hard


And these are the hands that built America
(Washington tree, Washington tree now)
These are the hands that built America


Of all of the promises, is this one we could keep
Of all of the dreams, is this one still out of reach


Halle, ole
(Dream-oh, no no yeah)
(Lord, dream oh no)


It’s early fall, there’s a cloud on the New York skyline

Innocence, dragged across a yellow line

These are the hands that built America
(Washington tree, Washington tree now)
These are the hands that built America
