A last refrain as I go to bed

This is Harry Chapin singing, "What Made America Famous."

It's the last verse that resonates for me, tonight;

I went to sleep with the hope that made America famous.
I had the kind of a dream that maybe they're still trying to teach in school.
Of the America that made America famous...and
Of the people who just might understand
That how together yes we can
Create a country better than
The one we have made of this land,
We have a choice to make each man
Who dares to dream, reaching out his hand
A prophet or just a crazy God damn
Dreamer of a fool - yes a crazy fool

And here's the entire song: enjoy!
