A land of silver and gold!

For Isabella and me!

SONG SEVEN: BROKEN DREAMS
Part 1 and 2:

Broken dreams and broken hearts; father stands against his sons.

Broken hopes and homes; divided one by one.

Broken dreams and broken hearts; heavy clouds that block the sun.

Broken promises, and pain for every one.

Each one thinking he’s right! Each one needing to fight.

Now the vision has become, a broken dream.
Broken dreams and broken hearts; things can never be the same.

Broken hopes and homes, and every one to blame.

Broken dreams and broken hearts; tearing everything in two.

Broken promises and nothing one can do.

Each one thinking he’s right! Each one needing to fight.

Now the vision has become, a broken dream.


Lincoln: (spoken)

The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us, the living, rather to be dedicated to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to the cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth.


Part 1: Part 2:

Each one thinking he’s right! …Do we really need to fight?

….Each one nee-ding When will someone see the light?

--To fight.. Can we all be thinking right?

(rest) Are we losing sight?

Now the vision has become a broken dream.

Now the vision has become—a---bro—ken-----dream-----.

Various Immigrants: (spoken one at a time)

Norway! Germany! Thailand! Vietnam! India! Kenya! Egypt! Japan! Etc….


Statue of Liberty: (spoken)

Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these the homeless- tempest tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door.


All: (spoken)

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America. And to the Republic for which it stands, One Nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all!


Part 1 and Part 2:

SONG NINE: AMERICAN DREAM FINALE
You’re a grand old flag, you’re a high flying flag,

And forever in peace may you wave.

You’re the emblem of the land I love, the home of the free and the brave,

Every heart beats true ‘neath the red, white, and blue

Where there’s never a boast or brag.

But should auld acquaintance be forgot,

Keep your eye on the grand old flag.
I’m a yankee doodle dan-dy.

A yan-kee doodle do or die;

A real live nephew of my Uncle Sam’s;

Born on the fourth of July.

I’ve got a yankee doodle sweet-heart,

She’s my yankee doodle joy.

Yankee doodle came to town,

Riding on a pony,

I am a Yankee Doodle boy!
O beautiful for spacious skies,

For amber waves of grain,

For purple mountain majesties

Above the fruited plain!

America, America, God shed His grace on thee,

And crown thy good with brotherhood

From sea to shining sea.

O beautiful for patriot dream,

That sees beyond the years,

Thine alabaster cities gleam

Undimmed by human tears!

America, America, God shed His grace on thee,

And crown thy good with brotherhood

From sea—to—shin—ing—sea!



A-mer-i-ca!
