Before there was America -- Before I knew that there was America -- I found an endless land -- Before there was an America -- We called ourselves Bostonians -- We raised up factories and farms, great houses and small -- We were willing to die to forge our dream -- Like clumsy children we fell -- We moved on stubbornly -- We were machines belching smoke -- We were the flat gold plains of Kansas -- We are America -- And from the tensions -- To each child a freedom dream
