The Songs Our Father’s sang

In Montgomery Alabama, a brave woman took a stand.

A young black preacher took us by the hand,

tried to lead us to the promised-land.

He preached that equality and justice belong to everyone

no matter the colour of their skin.

It’s time to sing the songs our fathers sang.

It’s time to sing the songs our fathers sang.

From the Fraser River Valley, down to the shining sea,

from snowy mountain tops, across the prairie lands,

our beardless youth are called on to be men.

Will the politicians ever learn

that war is a game, that no one can ever win.

It’s time to sing our father’s songs of peace again.

PeteSeeger and Woody Guthrie’s dreams of peace, go forever on.

Bob Dylan’s songs of freedom are blowing on the wind.

Even though the times have changed, the causes remain the same.

It’s time to sing the songs our fathers sang.

It’s time to sing the songs our fathers sang.

Rainbows and dewdrops dissolve into the light of day,

the old and broken soldiers just simply fade away,

and young men die on the killing fields again.

Will we ever learn to pray for peace instead of war,

or will we just go on fighting like we did before?

It’s time to teach the children, the songs our fathers sang.
