The Promise And The Dream
Written and recorded by Tom T. Hall

G C G
There's a sadness in your singing I have never heard before
D7 C G
There's a dying in your living that exists from shore to shore
C G C
There's a coward in your character that I have never seen
G D7 G
America what happened to the promise and the dream

D7 C G
The promise was that men could live and worship as they please
D7 C G
The dream was for the huddled masses yearning to breathe free
C G C
We closed so many doors and banned the prayers on many scenes
G D7 G
America what happened to the promise and the dream

C G
There's a numbness in your feeling for the disadvantaged poor
D7 C G
There's a weakness in your strength because your leaders are unsure
C G C
There are shadows in the light that once was freedom's brightest beam
G D7 G
America what happened to the promise and the dream

Repeat #2

C G
There's a hating in your loving for the permanence of vows
D7 C G
Tomorrow doesn't matter it's all for the here and now
C G C
Your most important word called love is now a dirty thing
G D7 G
America what happened to the promise and the dream

Repeat #2
