Good-Bye America Lyrics

Michael S. Burns

Were you there when all those brave boys sailed off to war?
They were sad and they were scared, but there was right and wrong to do
As the grey ships slipped away, headed for the fray
(I could swear) I heard one young man turn back and say

Good-Bye america, sweet home america
A nation forged by immigrants, protector of the innocents
America, good-Bye america
If I never see your face again, know that youRe the one I loved.

Were you there the day we buried our young president?
We were sad and we were scared, didnT know just what to do
As the caisson pulled away, A child whoD just turned three that day
(With one salute) he said what none of us could bear to say

Good-Bye america, brave new america
Where A grandson born to immigrants, can grow up to be A president
America, good-Bye america
If we never see your face again, know that youRe the one we loved.

ItS so damned hard to be our best
When we could be like all the rest
Why donT we take care of our own, turn off the beacon?

Were you there that day america went off to vote?
And forgot to ask ourselves, Is this the best that we can do?
Turn the petty and the proud
Against the angry and the loud
And all the people (Voices) of goodwill could not be heard above the crowd

Good-Bye america, what is america?
If we lock out all the immigrants, put up A wall and build A fence
America, good-Bye america
If we never see your face again, know that youRe the one we loved
Goodbye america
