Yesss!

AND...
"Christmas in the Trenches" by John McCutcheon
"Peace is..." by Fred Small
"Let The Band Play Dixie" by Bob Gibson
"The Universal Soldier" by Buffy Saint Marie
"Where Have All The Flowers Gone?" by "Unca" Pete Seeger
"And The Band Played 'Waltzing Matilda'" by Eric Bogle

Or maybe some of these are "anti-war" as opposed to "pro peace??" Does the distinction matter, Azoic??

The title cut from my 2008 Cd release of socially conscious messages

War Mongerin' Man Reggie Miles © 2008 All rights reserved

It's a cold, cold wind that blows no good
An evil seed that's growin' in our neighborhood
With a twisted soul, and tortured mind
And no love for his own kind
Too blind to see the things he should

Only the sound of gold ringing in his ears
Drowning out the cries of those whose lives are filled with tears
His deaf and dumb predisposition
Gives me a strong suspicion
Avarice is his sole mission around here

With every word he tries to convolute
Nothing is so sacred that his lies will not pollute
Disinformation is his tool
Playin' everybody for the fool
Is his only golden rule absolute

Have you felt the darkness spread,
Or heard the truth subverted by what he said?
A glad hand and a smile
Is his deceptive style
All the while he's a wishin' you were dead

Have you seen that war mongerin' man?
Have you seen the fruits of his labor across this land?
Have you ever wondered why?
He'll kiss your baby then he'll spit in your eye.
It's all a part of his master plan

Historically, we used to sing:

"I've got the opposition to conscription down in my heart"

(A rewrite on the religious tune, "Joy, Joy".

Last night at Wheal Dream Folk Club (Cornwall) our guest
Chris Flegg sang his song, 'A Song of Peace'. Very poignant, particularly as it was mother's day.

The words are here A Song of Peace

I interpret this to mean songs that are pro-peace, as opposed to anti-0war. Too often we define peace as the absence of war, rather than the presence of justice, solidarity, and yes, non-violent solutions to problems.

Songs that come to mind include:

Tom Paxton, "Peace Will Come" (already mentioned)
Sally Rogers, "Love Will Guide Us"
Pat Humphries, "Keep On Walking Forward" and "Peace, Salam, Shalom"
Utah Phillips, "Singing Through the Hard Times"
Cathy Fink, "Hands"
Any number of Pete Seeger songs, including "Oh Had I a Golden Thread"

My own contribution to this genre is "Hands Across the Waters" from my newest CD.
