I'm working as a volunteer on the committee producing Rise Again, the sequel to the Rise Up Singing songbook. One of the songs we want to include is "There'll Come a Day," by Bob Killian. The song was published in 1984 in Fast Folk Musical Magazine with a recording by Bob Killian, with Pete Seeger and others. Does anyone know how we can contact Bob Killian to get permission to publish his song in a songbook? We've contacted various e-mail addresses but received no response.
It's a lovely song, and it would be nice to be able to include it.

THERE'LL COME A DAY
(Bob Killian)

There'll come a day when our rivers will run again
Pure on their way
There'll come a time when we'll cherish the life in our
Oceans & bays
C F (4x)

Let the light (Let the light) shine out upon the land
Let the love (Let the love) flow out of everyone
And the way (And the Way) will break upon the darkness
Of the storm / There'll come a day! (There'll...) (2x)
Em F (3x) G - / C F /    /
...when the wheels of war will evermore / Stand & decay
...when the hunger in the youngest eyes / Will no longer stay

…when the strong will no longer make the / Weak ones pay
…when the homeless will have a safe, warm / Place to stay

…when justice & truth will rule / All that we say
…when everyone, everyone will / Stand & say…

Bob Killian
On Fast Folk 10:82.

Joe, I'll ask a friend, but in the meantime have you checked with folks who were also involved in the Clearwater activities around the same time?

Hi, Maeve-

Just tonight I e-mailed Clearwater's music director, Linda Richards; but I don't know of anybody involved in Clearwater music in 1984. My one contact from that time, wasn't involved in music and didn't know him.

Something makes me think Arlo Guthrie recorded this song on a concert album he did with Pete Seeger.

This is a really memorable song. I found the 1983 Fast Folk Musical Magazine recording by Killian & Seeger on Spotify, and listened through it. I swear I've heard this song many times, but I can't remember where or when. Anybody know of other recordings? Bob Killian sang it on Seeger's 2011 Tomorrow's Children with the Rivertown Kids.

FAST FOLK Vol.1 No.4 - liner notes available at the
Smithsonian-Folkways site.
He was a Clearwater Sloop singer, and other information
in the booklet may provide contact possibilities.....

Best wishes, Thomas.
