Ragtime The Musical ~ Wheels of a Dream + Lyrics

I was fortunate enough to stumble across this video clip of a performance by Audra McDonald and Brian Stokes Mitchell singing Wheels of a Dream.  Ragtime The Musical takes place in early 20th century America.  On its own the music, costumes, and acting is brilliant. Watching this musical number I shed tears.  I have not seen the play but if I should ever get the chance I will do a complete review.  Lyrics: [COALHOUSE] I see his face. I hear his heartbeat. I look in those eyes. How wise they seem. Well, when he is old enough I will show him America And he will ride on the wheels of a dream. [COALHOUSE] We'll go down South  [SARAH] Go down South, [COALHOUSE] And see your people  [SARAH] See my folks. [COALHOUSE] Won't they take to him [SARAH] They'll take to him [COALHOUSE] Like cats to cream!  [SARAH] Mmm... [COALHOUSE] Then we'll travel on from there. [SARAH] California or who knows where! [BOTH] And we will ride On the wheels of a dream. [COALHOUSE] Ye
