Love Like An Immigrant Lyrics

Grandpa came over on the boat
His voice was thick with the old world and smoke
And ran in Chicago, 'til he met my grandma
The he moved to South Bend with his new 14 year old bride

So mamma and Louie and the rest of the family
Lived in a duplex next to my great grandma Baldoni
And believed in the hopes that can grow in a country
Even after my grandma and grandpa went their separate ways

He said "Love who you are, love what it's meant
Live out your love like a new immigrant”

My dad drove a mile truck before he was 14
Came back from Korea in 1953
Met up with my mother, introduced by his sister
They put a dime in the juke box, took a turn on the dance floor

He said "Love who you are, love what it's meant
Live out your love like a new immigrant”

So I came along after one and before another
Grew up on the Beatles and Jack Kennedy's murder
I went looking for something in more than one country
Fell in love once or twice, broke my heart, but I'd try it again

So this is the new world, not the old world
Let me lie close beside you and whisper have you heard
The sound of the singing from some bright new country
And catch it's been calling us home to it lately

So "love who you are, love what it's meant,
Live out your love like a new immigrant”
