​Disney's America

This song is by Graham Parker and appears on the album 12 Haunted Episodes (1995).

I knew Virginia once She was a pretty girl
She walked in the wild fields and swam the wild streams
I took her out one day to the Civil War battlefield
Way down in Manassas where I told her my dreams

But now it's Disney's America a long way from anywhere
With a brand new coat to wear with a brand name on the seams
Just Disney's America Virginia she chose to stay
And we drifted apart like runoff into the Chesapeake Bay

Then I had a family Virginia, I guess she forgot about me
She lives near the concrete sea or so people say
I don't remember much about her gentle touch
My skin just turned so hard and my feet turned to clay

It was in Disney's America a long long way from anywhere
You get what you pay for there man you get it in spades
Just Disney's America Virginia she chose to stay
And we drifted apart like runoff into the Chesapeake Bay

You can't get too excited You can't get too enthused
From Dismal Land to the Tragic Mountain We are not amused

Yeah I knew Virginia once She, she was a pretty thing
She walked in the wild fields and swam in the wild streams

But now it's Disney's America That's where we collect our pay
Where we drifted apart like runoff into the Chesapeake Bay
Yeah we drifted apart like runoff into the Chesapeake Bay
