The Hands That Built America Lyrics

Artist: U2
Album: Best Of 1990-2000

Oh my love
It's a long way we've come
From the freckled hills
To the steel and glass canyons


From the stony fields
To hanging steel from skies
From digging in our pockets
For a reason not to say goodbye


These are the hands that built America
Ah ah ah...America


Last saw your face
In a watercolored sky
As sea birds argue A long goodbye


I took your kiss
On the spray of a new lined star
You gotta live in your dreams
Don't make them so hard


And these are the hands that built America
Ah ah ah...America


Of all of the promises
Is this one we can keep
Of all of the dreams
Is this one still out of reach?


Its early fall
There's a cloud in the New York skyline
Innocence...dragged across a yellow line


These are the hands that built America
These are the hands that built America
Ah ah ah...America
Ah ah ah...America
