Power and Glory

The Power and the Glory
by Phil Ochs

Come and take a walk with me through this green and growing land
Walk through the meadows and the mountains and the sand

Walk through the valleys and the rivers and the plains

Walk through the sun and walk through the rain

This is a land full of power and glory
Beauty that words cannot recall

Oh her power shall rest on the strength of her freedom

Her glory shall rest on us all

From Colorado, Kansas, and the Carolinas too
Virginia and Alaska, from the old to the new

Texas and Ohio and the California shore

Tell me, who could ask for more

Yet she’s only as rich as the poorest of her poor
Only as free as the padlocked prison door

Only as strong as our love for this land

Only as tall as we stand.
