I love Davy Steele's music- in my opinion, with or without other musicians he made so much magic with his music. I didn't really discover him (except for some of the Battlefield Band recordings) until a few years ago. He wrote some great songs, but this is one of his most moving, and more timely than ever. Could someone post the words?

Brand New Day
Davy Steele

On a brand new shore on a brand new day
You kissed the ground where you had landed
Took one last look o’er a thousand waves
To the high high lands from where you were hounded
You could still smell the smoke from the black house roof
You could still hear the laugh of the carrion that fired them
You looked to the sky and you gave God’s curse
To the hard hearted Laird who’d hired them

So how could you forget the anger and the hate
You felt inside when they robbed you of your pride
And caused you to wander

So you closed your mind to the pain of the past
Forged a new life found a new future
And you swore in your heart that here at last
You would be no man's slave no man's master
And you let the world know in the eyes of your laws
All would be free and created equal
Then you swept though the land like a fire on the wind
Where you touched the earth the touch was final

Then on sacred land owned by ancient man
You found rich soil and precious metal
So you swept them aside with your guns and lies
With only the thought of your own survival
For all the fine words that were said to inspire
All the poor of the world all the crushed and the homeless
Were drowned in the flood of your sole desire
To command so much power it would make you shameless
For you forgot how it felt to be bought and be sold
To be sent far away to be owned by another
You forgot the one thought in the minds of oppressed
Is to one day rise and make things better
