The Best Of 1990-2000 - The Hands That Built America lyrics

Oh my love, it's a long way we've come
From the freckled hills to the steel 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)
Oh, oh oh, America
(Polish, Irish, German, Italian)

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

And these are the hands that built America
(The Irish, the Blacks, the Chinese, the Jews)
Ah, ah ah, America
(Korean, Hispanic, Muslim, Indian)

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

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
These are the hands that built America
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah America
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah America
