Thread Name: What is Folk? IN SONG.
Subject: RE: What is Folk? IN SONG.
Here's a bit from me

WHY ARE THEY SINGING

Are they singing for more freedom
Are they singing for more guns
Are they singing for their children
Or just marching with their drums.
Are they writing words for lovers
To be whispered in the night
Are they writing songs for money
Or to shed a little light.

If you hold your child and sing
If you care enough to bring
A little more song to the world
Then your banner is unfurled
You've become one of the throng
Who pass the songs along
You've joined the souls who love
Plain old music.
