about

A song about immigrants who built this country.

lyrics

Welcome to the land of milk and honey
You can't buy bread with honest money
The wolves out in the street all say they love me
Like ushers in the land of milk and honey

The memories in your head call for yesterday
New world at your feet and it's here to stay
The beggars and the thieves earns the devil's pay
Fire in the street don't look away

Living in the land of milk and honey
Following the flow like a river running
I'm not sure where to turn when the cards come tumbling
I didn't come here to get it all took from me

I'll be sleeping on the sands of California
Make another dollar and I'll come back for you
Broken on the banks of the Mississippi
Caught between the allies of this sorry city

Lost here in the land of milk and honey
You can't buy bread with honest money
The roof is caving in and the walls are crumbling
I guess it's been a while since you last heard from me
