lyrics

IMMMIGRANT DREAM
© Bob Wright
A
Who are you Annie Kiley
D
With your hard calloused hands
E D A
And a husband who works as a riverboat man
A7
You’re taking in laundry
D
You’re pregnant again
A E A D
But you’re proud of the life you have made… here…
A E A
You are proud of the life you have made
(Chorus)
E A D
Hearts and hands… hopes and plans
A E
That’s what an immigrant brings
E A D
Thoughts of homes and families grown
A E A
Are only an immigrant dream
D A E A
They are only an immigrant dream

You can walk to St’ Patrick’s
And the river is free
It could be the Shannon, the Liffey, the Lee
It reminds you of Ireland
So far cross the sea
But you’re proud of the life you have made… here…
You are proud of the life you have made
(Chorus)
It isn’t all good
There are people who hate
And at times you miss home
With such pain that it hurts
But you married for love
And you have food to eat
And you’re proud of the life you have made… here…
You are proud of the life you have made
(Chorus)

They surface in a modern world, constructed with a modern sensibility and a comforting resonance with the past. ... more
