Words- Hal David
Music- Joe Raposo
America is the sharecroppers son… who plays a guitar
And grows up to be a rock ‘n’ roll star.
Yes, even a sharecropper’s son can go far, in America.
America is an immigrant’s daughter…has something to say,
Who grows up to be a writer one day.
An immigrant’s daughter can turn out okay, in America…
You can build a bigger bridge…You can make a better car.
Erect a building tall enough… to almost touch the stars.
Anything you can dream, you can do… it’s up to you!
America is the cop on the beat who walks all alone
And offers his life to safeguard our own.
Like so many heroes, unsung, and unknown…in America!
America is the telephone man on top of the pole,
The miner who digs deep down in a hole.
And each one in search of his own private goal, in America…
You can build a stronger dam… You can make a faster plane.
Irrigate a barren desert that’s cryin’ out for rain.
Anything you can dream, you can do…It’s up to you!
America is the light in the harbor…that immigrants see
That tells them they’ve reached the land of the free.
And that is the way that it always will be in America, America,
