Song For America

Lyrics

Virgin land of forest green, dark and stormy plains, here all life abounds
Sunlit valley, mountain fields, unseen in the rain, here all life abounds
No man rules this land, no human hand has soiled this paradise
Waiting patiently, so much to see, so rich in Earth's delights
full lyrics
Virgin land of forest green, dark and stormy plains, here all life abounds
Sunlit valley, mountain fields, unseen in the rain, here all life abounds
No man rules this land, no human hand has soiled this paradise
Waiting patiently, so much to see, so rich in Earth's delights

Listened to Kansas all the way from Minneapolis to Mankato and back. Stunning-sec o n d only to Gentle Giant
Not an unnecessary note in this song's ten-minute entirety. A masterpiece of American progressive rock
Sorry, but this song is exactly as long as it should be....
Great song!
(but maybe about five minutes too long)
Killer tune, killer band!
They don't write em like that anymore... Excellent musicianship .
How anyone couldn't say this is one of the greatest songs about "America" should be deported!
Amazing song! Manifest destiny: the pioneers and settlers belief that this land had been theirs for the taking---ind e e d , God-given. And take they did. . .

Sounds like this is the full unabridged version of the song, not a single edit, which is a cool thing.
This song is much cooler than the Star-Spangle d Banner... I think it should become the new US national anthem. :D
One of my favorite Kansas songs. The song is also on the album entitled "SONG FOR AMERICA" Which is an excellent older album,before they got BIG.

My favorite song of all time.
