The New Land (John Denver)

We have this dream - America,
A vision bright and clear.
In the freedom we are seeking,
We have planted ourselves here.

American Child (John Denver)

American Child, does the call of the wild
Ever sing through the mist of your dreams
Does it fly with the wind when you waken again
When it's gone do you know what it means

John Denver's "Matthew" feels very American to me:  Kansas farms, family, hard work
