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,

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.

If they can count, the billions that loser says he’s worth
Why can't they count our votes
If they can count when Breitbart denies Obama's US birth
Why can't they count our votes?

We’re not done, we’re not tired
We won’t stop until . . . Steve Bannon
You’re fired!

When they claimed, he won the Electoral College fair and square, we said
“Why can't you count our votes?”
Voter suppression and ID laws gave him much more than his share and
Why can't they count our votes?

We’re not done, we’re not tired
We won’t stop until . . . Mike Pence
You’re fired!

Counting money, that one's easy
Corporate donations to his foundation
Conflicts of interest in the name of business
Scandals to the maxes
When are you gonna show your taxes?

If you can count 140 characters in a tweet,
Why can't you count our votes?
Her 3 million vote lead should have been your defeat
Why can't you count our votes?

We’re not done, we’re not tired
We won’t stop until . . . Donald Trump
You’re fired!

Why can’t you count our votes

Why can’t you count our votes
(Refugees Welcome Here)
Why can’t you count our votes

Why can’t you count our votes

From: Joe Offer

Hmmm. I'm finding a song titled "Heroes" that appears to have been written by Ann Reed and may have been performed by Pat Humphries.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENLdKMA5Igk


HEROES
(Ann Reed)

What can I learn from you
In your lifetime, in what you've been through
How'd you keep your head up and hold your pride
In an insane world how'd you keep on tryin'
One life can tell the tale
That if you make the effort, you cannot fail
By your life you tell me it can be done
By your life's the courage to carry on

CHORUS
Heroes
Appear like a friend
To clear a path or light the flame
As time goes, you find you depend
On your heroes to show you the way

What can I learn from you
That I must do the thing I think I cannot do
That you do what's right by your heart and soul
It's the imperfections that make us whole
One life can tell the tale
That if you make the effort you cannot fail
By your life you tell me it can be done
By your life's the courage to carry on

CHORUS

Sojourner Truth, Eleanor Roosevelt
Katharine Hepburn, Sally Ride
Susan B. Anthony, Harriet Tubman
Annie Sullivan, Gertrude Stein

Coretta Scott King, Amelia Earhart
Lillian Hellman, Eartha Kitt
Sacajewea, Ella Fitzgerald
Golda Meir, Dorothy Dix

Louisa May Alcott, Billie Jean King
Emily Dickinson, Lucy Stone
Margaret Sanger, Clara Barton
Billie Holiday, Juliette Low

Elizabeth Blackwell, Rosa Parks
Lena Horne, Beverly Sills
Barbara Jordan, Helen Keller
Indira Gandhi, Agnes de Mille

Corazon Aquino, Gloria Steinem
Rachel Carson, Joan of Arc
Babe Zaharias, Marlene Dietrich
Anne Frank, Simone de Beauvoir

Pamber, you may not have been looking for the wrong lady. I saw something on Google (I have lost the link and can't find it now) where about 18 of Pat Humphries' songs were listed and only 17 of the lot were available for play. The 18th was titled "Heroes" but it seemed to have been 'taken down'. So, I suspect that PH did do the song but for some reason it's no longer available. If I find it again I'll post the link here.

Found it with a Google of: Pat Humphries, songs

I cannot post a link to it (I tried and it doesn't work)--and my memory is shot. There are 28 songs listed (not 18) across the top of the page that displays, and Heroes is the very last. Also, I'm not sure they were available for play. However, it doesn't say what album/CD it's from, so I suspect it was there at some point but isn't now. So, I don't know what all that means, and my guesses about it could well be out to lunch. I hope I haven't confused the issue. But it looks like she did do the song.

Yeah, I'm almost sure I've heard Pat Humphries sing "Heroes." She's quite a nice person, by the way. Hey, I was even on stage with her - twice, I think...but I'm not sure she even noticed me or would remember me.
