Kansas

Song For America

Kansas

Virgin land of forest green, dark and stormy plains, here alllife abounds
Sunlit valley, mountain fields, unseen in the rain, here all lifeabounds
No man rules this land, no human hand has soiled this paradise
Waiting patiently, so much to see, so rich in Earth's delights

Painted desert, sequined sky, stars that fill the night, here alllife abounds
Rivers flowing to the sea, sunshine pure and bright, here alllife abounds
No man rules this land, no human hand has soiled this paradise
Waiting patiently, so much to see, so rich in Earth's delights

So the maiden lies in waiting, for the sails to reach the shore
Land of beauty and abundance, innocent, you opened wide yourdoor
Wanderers found the waiting treasure, full of gifts beyond theirmeasure
Milk and honey for our pleasure.....

Across the sea there came a multitude, sailing ships upon thewave
Filled with visions of Utopia, and the freedom that they crave
Ravage, plunder, see no wonder, rape and kill and tear asunder
Chop the forest, plow it under.....

Highways scar the mountainsides, buildings to the sky, people allaround
Houses stand in endless rows, sea to shining sea, people allaround
So we rule this land, and here we stand upon our paradise,
Dreaming of a place, our weary race is ready to arise
