Thousands Are Sailing Lyrics. The island it is silent now But the ghosts still haunt the waves And the torch lights up a famished man Whom fortune could not save. Did you work upon the railroad Did you rid the streets of crime Were your dollars from the White House Were they from the five and dime. Ah, no, says he, 'twas not to be On a coffin ship I came here And I never even got so far That they could change my name. Thousands are sailing Across the western ocean To a land of opportunity That some of them will never see Fortune prevailing Across the western ocean Their bellies full Their spirits free They'll break the chains of poverty And they'll dance. In Manhattan's desert twilight In the death of afternoon We stepped hand in hand on Broadway Like the first man on the moon.
