Subject: Lyr Add: SWIMMING TO THE OTHER SIDE (Pat Humphries
From: Ebbie
Date: 18 Nov 03 - 07:17 PM

Here's a song of hers where the theme of one-ness seems evident:

Swimming to the Other Side
Lyrics by: Pat Humphries
Tune: original
Date: 1992

Chorus: (same melody as verse)
       We are living 'neath the great Big Dipper
       We are washed by the very same rain
       We are swimming in the stream together
       Some in power and some in pain
       We can worship this ground we walk on
       Cherishing the beings that we live beside
       Loving spirits will live forever
       We're all swimming to the other side.

I am alone, and I am searching, hungering for answers in my time
I am balanced at the brink of wisdom; I'm impatient to receive a sign
I move forward with my senses open, imperfection will be my crime
In humility I will listen, we're all swimming to the other side

On this journey through thoughts and feelings, finding intuition: my head, my heart
I am gathering the tools together; I'm preparing to do my part
All of those who have come before me, band together and be my guide
Loving lessons that I will follow, we're all swimming to the other side

When we get there we'll discover, all of the gifts we've been given to share
Have been with us since life's beginning and we never noticed they were there
We can balance at the brink of wisdom, never recognizing that we've arrived
Loving spirits will live together; we're all swimming to the other side^^^

Here is a link to We Are One and the words:

WE ARE ONE
(Pat Humphries)

Verse
Smiling face, outstretched hand
Through disputes small and grand
We will lay down our guns
We are one

In the rage, through the war
We have shared pain before
In our grief when it's done
We are one, We are one

Chorus
Where the earth touches sky
We are born, we all die
Where the clear waters run
We are one
We are one

Verse 2
When the light touches land
Over sea, over sand
When each day has begun
We are one

When the rock wears away
And the tide rolls and sways
By the moon, by the sun
We are one, We are one

Chorus
Where the earth touches sky
We are born, we all die
Where the clear waters run
We are one
We are one

Verse 3
In the soft of the night
We are learning not to fight
In our hearts, in the drum
We are one

In the birth of a child
Through the fierce and the mild
In our daughters and sons
We are one, We are one

Chorus
Where the earth touches sky
We are born, we all die
Where the clear waters run
We are one
We are one

According to the site, Pat won the Grand Prize (Folk category) at the 2002 John Lennon Songwriting Contest.

This is the result of a pretty simple Google search, initially on "We Are One" and then "search within results" on "Pat Humphries." She's a local (Washington DC area) and she sells a nice tee-shirt that bears her signature phrase, "Peace Salaam, Shalom" (the latter two written in their respective non-roman alphabets.)

Peace,

JudyO

Does anybody know the guitar chords to the Emma's Revolution song "One-By-One" about the U.S. Army School of the Americas(SOA)/Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation(WHISC/WHINSEC)?

I found this on a website of the Jesuit Volunteer Corps: www.jesuitvolunteers.org/Library/upload/SOA%20Newsletter%2020th%20Anniversary.pdf

ONE BY ONE
(Pat Humphries)

We have come to this place
To renounce this disgrace
Brick by brick
Wall by wall
We will make this building fall
We have watched,  
     one by one
The SOA, one by one
That some would try,  
     one by one
To WHISC away, one by one
But this School, one by one
Drenched in shame,  
     one by one
Cannot hide, one by one
Behind a name, one by one
We have paid, one by one
Against our will, one by one
While men torture,  
     one by one

Maim and kill, one by one
We'll return, one by one
Thousands strong, one by one
Until right, one by one
Replaces wrong, one by one
We will teach, one by one
Our children peace,  
     one by one
'Til all war, one by one
And hunger cease,  
     one by one
We have come, one by one
By the score, one by one
We will learn, one by one
To fight no more, one by one
In one voice we will stand
We will sing, we will demand
We have each received a sign
Close the School
Cross the line


You can hear a partial clip of the song at the Website of Emma's Revolution, Pat Humphries and Sandy O.

There's mention of this song in a book called The Bardo of Waking Life, by Richard Grossinger. The passage is worth a look (just click on the link).

COMMON THREAD
(Pat Humphries, 1986)

In a many colored garden we are growing side by side
We will rise all together, we will rise.
With the sun and rain upon us, not a row shall be denied
We will rise all together, we will rise.

We will rise like the ocean
We will rise like the sun
We will rise all together, we will rise
In our many colored fabrics made from strands of common thread
We will rise all together, we will rise.

We can feed our grain to cattle and the rich man will be fed
Or we'll feed our grain to people so that millions will have bread.

We will rise like the ocean
We will rise like the sun
We will rise all together, we will rise
No more will there be hunger in these strands of common thread.
We will rise all together, we will rise.

In the cold of fear and hatred, clothed in dignity we stand
We have pieced this quilt together, linking hearts with stitching hands.

We will rise like the ocean
We will rise like the sun
We will rise all together, we will rise
We are spirits drawn together tightly by our common threads.
We will rise all together, we will rise.

From our children to our elders, from all nations we will rise
May respect for all our differences enhance our common ties.

We will rise like the ocean
We will rise like the sun
We will rise all together, we will rise
We will buid a global family, strengthened by our common threads.
We will rise all together, we will rise.
