  • Livin' in a city of immigrants
    I don't need to go travelin'
    Open my door and the world walks in
    Livin' in a city of immigrants
    Livin' in a city that never sleeps
    My heart keepin' time to a thousand beats
    Singin' in languages I don't speak
    Livin' in a city of immigrants

    City of black
    City of white
    City of light
    City of innocents
    City of sweat
    City of tears
    City of prayers
    City of immigrants

    Livin' in a city where the dreams of men
    Reach up to touch the sky and then
    Tumble back down to earth again
    Livin' in a city that never quits
    Livin' in a city where the streets are paved
    With good intentions and a people's faith
    In the sacred promise a statue made
    Livin' in a city of immigrants

    City of stone
    City of steel
    City of wheels
    Constantly spinnin'
    City of bone
    City of skin
    City of pain
    City of immigrants

    All of us are immigrants
    Every daughter, every son
    Everyone is everyone
    All of us are immigrants - everyone
    Livin' in a city of immigrants
    River flows out and the sea rolls in
    Washin' away nearly all of my sins
    Livin' in a city of immigrants

    City of black
    City of white
    City of light
    Livin' in a city of immigrants
    City of sweat
    City of tears
    City of prayers
    Livin' in a city of immigrants

    City of stone
    City of steel
    City of wheels
    Livin' in a city of immigrants

    City of bone
    City of skin
    City of pain
    City of immigrants
    All of us are immigrants, all of us are immigrantsWriter/s: STEVE EARLE
