Story Behind the Song

A musical about the polio vaccine

Lyrics

I'll find my dreams in Pittsburghland

Gazing out upon the Monongahela
There's the Allegheny River you can feel the breeze
Try not to forget the Old Ohio
That 3 Rivers comfort
will put your mind at ease

I'll take a ride on the Duquesne Incline
I'll ride so calm to the very top
There is so much work for us to build on
I'll toil hard and yes will never stop

Chorus:
Leaves are falling
There were tears last summer
I'm not afraid, so can you take my hand?
They'll be times of happiness
But also days of sorrow
I know I'll find my dreams in Pittsburghland

Heady days are surely now upon us
As I pass on by the Morrowfield Hotel
That stately mansion gets my attention
She winks her eye and wishes me well

Chorus:
Leaves are falling
There were tears last summer
I'm not afraid, so can you take my hand?
They'll be times of happiness
But also days of sorrow
I know I'll find my dreams in Pittsburghland

Bridge: The smokestacks they used to spit
Corruption in the air
This land of milk and honey
Once didn't have a prayer
Now the little children suffer
In braces that appall
The airs still black as I watch the children fall


Looking back at another fearful summer
I'll drive on out to Shadyside one night
I'll look on up at the stars of sad-eyed children
And ask if I can be their White Knight

Chorus (instrumental)

Chorus:
Leaves are falling
There were tears last summer
I'm not afraid, so can you take my hand?
They'll be times of happiness
But also days of sorrow
I know I'll find my dreams in Pittsburghland
