THE MUSIC OF HEALING
(Tommy Sands)

Don't beat the drum that frightens the children.
Don't sing the songs of winning and losing.
Sit down beside me in the green fields of Bredon.
Sing me the music of healing.

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

CHORUS: Ah, ah, the heart’s a wonder,
Stronger than the guns of thunder,
Even when it's torn asunder.
Love will come again.

Sometimes the truth lies hid in a cornfield.
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 learnt to be hard and I've learnt to be humble.
Sing me the music of healing. CHORUS

Somehow the cycle of engines keeps turning
To each of our 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 of 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

See also this earlier thread, where the lyrics are already posted, though to begin with wrongly attributed to Sean Keane:  The Music of Healing

I didn't find the lyrics (looked here too, Mal)but I found it listed both as Hearts Of Wonder and Hearts A Wonder........one site also attributed it to Sean. Good job, guys.

The Heart's A Wonder is the name of Tommy Sands' album circa 1995 which includes The Music Of Healing. The song title refers to Sands' now ten-year-old annual event of bringing together fighting religious factions through their musicians and their music. :-)

In the links for the songs in the DT, the first three are either by Bobby Sands or mention in the lyrics a Bobby Sands.

Also, the links to threads left out another Tommy Sands thread When the Boys Come Rollin Home


    Hi, George. I put all the Sands Family threads and songs in the same crosslinks group. I added "Rollin" to the group.

Now, I can sing the chorus, and I seem to remember the verse sounds
a great deal like Rivers of Texas. A tune, anyone? If worse comes to
worse, I can post a guess, but it sure would be nice to have something a bit better than my memory to work from.

The chorus is
5,7,2up,1,1,6,5
5,7,2up,7,1,1,6,5
low1,3,5,1,6,1,6,5

Well, Joe, I'll give it a try, but it may sound too much like "Rivers". And there's an interesting Mondegreen in the last verse:

"Somehow the cycle of engines keeps turning
To each of our sorrows and songs we start learning."

I'm pretty sure that should be "cycle of vengance".
Blessings,
Barbara

Thanks for the MIDI, Barbara. Are the lyrics in the other thread more accurate? Hey, could it be some sort of Harley biker song?

Yeah, Joe, I think the lyrics in the other thread are closer to what I've heard anyway. I'm gonna dink with the tune a bit more and run it past Laura and then ship it to you again.

Here is the way I have heard it sung by Laura Martin.
She also tells a story about Tommy singing the first two verses of this song, with great trepidation, for Pete Seeger at the breakfast table.
"Well?" says Pete when he's done.
"Uhm, well what?" says Tommy.
"Well, where are the rest of the verses?" says Pete. "A song that good needs more than two verses."

MUSIC OF HEALING
(Tommy Sands)

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 bleeding,
Sing me the music of healing.

Sing me a song of a lover returning,
The darker the night, the brighter 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 cornfield.
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

One more time, with a few more corrections provided by Laura

THE MUSIC OF HEALING
(Tommy Sands)

Don't beat the drums that frighten the children.
Don't sing the songs about winning and losing.
Come sit down beside me, the green fields are bleeding
Sing me the music of healing.
Sing me a song of a lover returning,
The darker the night, the nearer the morning.
Bring me the news of a new day that's dawning.
Sing 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 its footprints.
Sing me the music of healing.
And who would have thought I could feel so contented
To learn I was wrong after all of my rambles?
I've learnt to be hard and I've learned how to tremble
Sing 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.
Sing me the music of healing.
Time is your friend. It can heal all of 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

Blessings,
Barbara
