Story Behind the Song

ellis island

Lyrics

streets of gold

we climbed on board
with the clothes we were wearing
pushing and shoving
and lead by the blind
the tensions were high as we huddled together
the promise of a dream
still burning in our minds

chorus:
and when our ship reached the shore
we were hungry and poor
but our hearts burned
like fire in the cold
and we all left our homes
such a long time ago
to walk the streets of gold

verse:
we begged for our jobs
and worked hard for our families
suffered the abuse
the insults and the shame
defended ourselves
and defended our children
taught them to be proud
of their God and their names

chorus:
and when our ship reached the shore
we were hungry and poor
but our hearts burned
like fire in the cold
and we all left our homes
such a long time ago
to walk the streets of gold

bridge:
we stormed o'er the sand
and forged through the jungles
fought in the snow
and died on the sea
we went hand to hand
and brother to brother
to live like slaves
in the land of the free

chorus:
and when our ship reached the shore
we were hungry and poor
but our hearts burned
like fire in the cold
and we all left our homes
such a long time ago
to walk the streets of gold

verse:
family and friends
the good times and bad times
most i've forgotten
now that i'm old...
but sometimes at night
when i look out my window
when the moon is shining bright
the streets turn to gold
