What is America to me

A name a map the flag I see

A certain word democracy

What is America to me

The house I live in

A plot of earth a street

The grocer and the butcher

And the people that I meet

The children in the playground

The faces that I see

All races and religions

That's America to me

The place I work in

The workers at my side

The little town a city

Where my people live and die

The howdy and the handshake

The air of feeling free

And the right to speak your mind out

That's America to me

The things I see about me

The big things and the small

The little corner news stand

And the house a mile tall

The wedding in the church yard

The laughter and the tears

The dream that's been a-growing

For one hundred and fifty years

The town I live in

The street the house the room

The pavement of a city

Of a garden all in bloom

The church the school the clubhouse

The million lights I see

But especially the people

That's America to me
