  1. Promised Land

From the recording Promised Land

This song was inspired by 3 generations of our family and the obstacles they faced in the effort to follow their dreams of a better life in THEIR Promised Land.

Lyrics

In 1847 from the Emerald Isle, An Irish farmer sailed with his wife and child  Driven more by famine than the hunger to be free, They made their way to Boston, and opportunity.   The future was uncertain but they made their stand They paid the price and made it, in the Promised Land   In 1946 when he came back from the war Couldn't make a living on a dirt farm anymore  He was scared to go, but he was more afraid to stay Hitched a ride up the Hillbilly Highway    The future was uncertain but he made his stand He paid the price and made it, in the Promised Land   Nobody seems to hear what she's been trying to say With a guitar & a song, she's gonna say it anyway  Driven by ambition and the hunger to succeed She's on her way to Nashville, chasing down a dream   And the future is uncertain but she's gonna make her stand She'll pay the price to make it, in the Promised Land   Outro And the future is uncertain but if you want to make your stand You’re FREE to make it, in the Promised
