I hope this will make Larry, GeorgeH, Big Mick, Alison, Aine, and McGrath happy. I know it makes ME happy!

THE MUSIC OF HEALING—by Sean Keane

Actually by Tommy Sands. --JoeClone, 4-Apr-03.

Don't beat the drum; that frightens the children.
Don't sing the songs about winning and losing.
Sit down beside me. The green fields are breeding.
Sing me the music of healing.

Sing me a song of a lover returning,
And after the night, and in the morning,
Bring me the news of a new day that's dawning.
Sing me the music of healing.

CHORUS: Oh, oh, the heart's a wonder,
Stronger than the guns of thunder.
Even when we're torn asunder,
Love will come again.

Sometimes the truth's like a hare in a coalfield.
You know that it's there, but you can't put your arms
Round it. All you can hope for is to follow its footprints.
Sing me the music of healing.

Who would have thought I could feel so contented
To learn I was wrong after all of my rambles?
I've learned to be hard. I've learned to be humble.
Sing me the music of healing. CHORUS

Somehow the cycle of vengeance keeps turning
Till each other's sorrows and songs we start learning.
Peace is the prize for those who are daring.
Sing me the music of healing.

Time is your friend. it cures all your sorrows.
But how can I wait for another tomorrow?
One step today, and a thousand will follow.
Sing me the music of healing. CHORUS TWICE

Mbo, this was written by Tommy Sands. It's on his CD 'The Heart's a Wonder', with one verse sung by a very old friend of his, Pete Seeger. I haven't heard Sean Keane's version, but though I've no doubt it is good - this is IT. Check it out! - Susanne

I see what appear to be a lot of mistakes. Here is the version as I heard it on the Tommy Sands' album:

Don't beat the drums that frighten the children,
Don't sing the songs about winning and losing,
Sit down beside me the green fields are burning,
Bring me the music of healing.
Bring me the news of a lover returning,
The darker the night, the nearer the morning,
Bring me the news of a new day that's dawning,
Bring me the music of healing.

Chorus:
Ah, ah, the heart's a wonder, stronger than the guns of thunder,
Even when we're torn asunder, love will come again.

Sometimes the truth's like a hare in the cornfield,
You know that it's there but you can't put your arms round it,
All you can hope for is follow it's footprint,
Bring me the music of healing.
Who would have thought I could feel so contented,
To learn I was wrong after all of my rambles,
I've learned to be hard and I've learned to be humble,
Bring me the music of healing

Chorus

Somehow the cycle of vengeance keeps turning.
Till each others' sorrows and songs we start learning,
Peace is the prize for those who are daring,
Bring me the music of healing.
Time is your friend, it will heal all your sorrow,
But who wants to wait for another tomorrow,
One step today and a thousand will follow,
Bring me the music of healing.

Chorus

Thanks, Don. The version in the CD booklet is slightly different again - folk process started by song's author?

Verse 1:
Don't beat the drums, that frightens the children,

...the green fields are burning,
Sing me the music of healing.
Sing me a song of a lover returning,

Sing me the music of healing.

Verse 2:
Sing me the music of healing.

I've learned to be hard and I've learned how to tremble
Sing me the music of healing

Verse 3:
Sing me the music of healing.
Time is your friend, it cures all your sorrows ,
But how can I wait till another tomorrow,

Sing me the music of healing.


I'm looking forward to hearing the Sands Family over here in April and May.
