    What is this land of 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 woman wear silk and satin to their knees*
    And children dear, the sweets, I hear, are growing on the trees*
    Gold comes rushing out the river straight into your hands*
    If you make your home in the American land*

    There's diamonds in the sidewalks, there's gutters 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 will make his home in the American land

    I docked at Ellis Island in a 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
    And I made my home in the American land

    There's diamonds in the sidewalk, there's gutters 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 will make his home in the American land

    The McNicholas, the Posalski's, the Smiths, Zerillis too**
    The Blacks, the Irish, the Italians, the Germans and the Jews
    The Puerto Ricans, illegals, the Asians, Arabs miles from home***-*****
    Come across the water with a fire down below******

    They died building the railroads, 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 dyin' now
    The hands that built the country we're all trying to keep down

    There's diamonds in the sidewalk, there's gutters 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 will make his home in the American land
    Who will make his home in the American land
    Who will make his home in the American land
