Subject: RE: 'Zipper Songs' we have known and sung...
Sing4Peace, you remind me of a favorite inspirational song, which I've heard once--count 'em, once--and immediately had in memory. And I've performed it once--count 'em, once--for an audience congregation, at a Mudcat gathering at Susan and Hardi's in Pennsylvania. It calls for active participation by the listeners in the chorus and the repetitive post-zip lines of the verse, and when they join well it's quite impressive.
