Song Meaning
Verse 1
Oh my love
It's a long way we've come
From the freckled hills
To the steel and glass canyons
Verse 2
From the stony fields
To hanging steel from skies
From digging in our pockets
For a reason not to say goodbye
Verse 3
These are the hands that built America
Ah, ah, ah, America
Verse 4
Last saw your face
In a water colored sky
As sea birds argue a long goodbye
Verse 5
I took your kiss
On the spray of a new lined star
You gotta live in your dreams
Don't make them so hard
Verse 6
And these are the hands that built America
Ah, ah, ah, America
Verse 7
Of all of the promises
Is this one we can keep
Of all of the dreams
Is this one still out of reach?
Verse 8
It's early fall
There's a cloud in the New York skyline
Innocence dragged across a yellow line
Verse 9
These are the hands that built America
These are the hands that built America
Ah, ah, ah, America
Ah, ah, ah, America
