To say Willie Nelson is a patriotic man would be an understatement, as he's stepped forward multiple times to say how much he loves his country. But the song "Living in the Promise Land" seems to truly resonate that love more than he could say it in words. As the first single to the album "The Promiseland" it definitely outlined the theme for the entire album.

The hit went straight to the top of the charts in 1986 when Willie released it to the public. It was a song that became an anthem for country music listeners, an anthem of the country they lived in, their promise land. This was Willie's twelfth number one single and spent one week as number one.

LYRICS BELOW

Give us your tired and weak
And we will make them strong
Bring us your foreign songs
And we will sing along

Leave us your broken dreams
We'll give them time to mend
There's still a lot of love
Living in the Promiseland

Living in the Promiseland
Our dreams are made of steel
The prayer of every man
Is to know how freedom feels

There is a winding road
Across the shifting sand
And room for everyone
Living in the Promiseland

So they came from a distant isle
Nameless woman
Faithless child like a bad dream
Until there was no room at all
No place to run, and no place to fall

Give us our daily bread
We have no shoes to wear
No place to call our home
Only this cross to bear

We are the multitudes
Lend us a helping hand
Is there no love anymore
Living in the Promiseland

Living in the Promiseland
Our dreams are made of steel
The prayer of every man
Is to know how freedom feels

There is a winding road
Across the shifting sand
And room for everyone
Living in the Promiseland
