Bruce Springsteen - American Land (текст)

“What is this land 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 women
wear silk and satin to their knees
and children, dear, the sweets
I hear, are growing on the trees
gold comes rushing out the rivers
straight into your hands
when you make your home
in the American land

There’s diamonds in the sidewalk
the gutter’s 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’ll make his home
in the American land

I docked at Ellis Island
in the 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
we made our home
in the American land

There’s diamonds in the sidewalk
the gutter’s 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’ll make his home
in the American land

The McNicholases, the Posalskis
the Smiths, Zerillis, too
the Blacks, the Irish, Italians
the Germans and the Jews
they come across the water
a thousand miles from home
with nothing in their bellies
but the fire down below

They died building the railroads
they 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 still dying now
their hands that built the country
we’re always trying to keep out

There’s diamonds in the sidewalk
the gutter’s 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’ll make his home in the American land
who’ll make his home in the American land
who’ll make his home in the American land”.
