Oh Ellis Island was swarming
Decked out in the colors in Europe

With the tired and hungry and scared
Bound by the dream that they shared
They were standing in lines just like cattle
Some were one desk away from sweet freedom

Came a young man confused and alone
And carryin' everything that he owned
I see that day reflected and I can't hold my feelings inside
So don't take it for granted say grandfather's Immigrant Eyes
Now he rocks and stares out the window
As the day he sailed through the harbor

But I won' t let his memory die
And the look in his Immigrant Eyes
