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
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
