Lyrics

Now he arrives with his hopes And his heart set on miracles Come to marry his fortune With a hand full of promises To find they've closed the door They don't want him anymore There isn't any more to go around Turning away he remembers He once heard a legend That spoke of a mystical Magical land called America There was a time when Strangers were welcome here Music would play They tell me the days Were sweet and clear It was a sweeter tune And there was so much room That people could come From everywhere There was a time when Strangers were welcome here Music would play They tell me the days Were sweet and clear There was a time when Strangers were welcome here Music would play They tell me the days Were sweet and clear
