One of my favourites on Christy Moore´s Live At The Point is "natives". Unfortunately, I can´t find the correct tunes in the middle of the verse. May anybody help, please ?

As for they´re not in the database, here are the lyrics:


Natives

For all of our languages we can´t communicate
For all of our native tongues we´re all natives here
Sons of their fathers´ dream the same dream
The sound of forbidden words became a scream
Voices in anger, Victims of history
Plundered and set aside, grown fat on swallowed pride

With promises of paradise and gifts of beads and knives
Missionaries and pioneers are soldiers in disguise
Saviours and conquerors they make us wait
The fishers of men they wave their truth like bait
with the touch of a stranger’s hand innocence turns to shame
The spirit that dwelt within now sleeps out in the rain

For all of our languages we can’t communicate
For all of our native tongues we’re all natives here
The scars of the past are slow to disappear
The cries of the dead are always in our ears
Only the very safe can talk about wrong and right
of those who are forced to choose some will choose to fight.

For all of our languages we can´t communicate

For a clear-eyed look at what the great age of colonialism was all about, find Eduardo Galeano's three part anecdotal history of the colonization of the Americas: Memory of Fire. --seed

Songs really can't get any better than this one ! Someone gave me a tape they made of " Live at the Point " so I don't know who wrote this beauty, anyone know ?

The Rankins have recorded this one on one of their CDs. I didn't realize it was Cristy Moore. It's a great song.

The Rankin Family Endless Seasons CD says the song was written by Paul Doran, with the copyright held by Bal Music. It's certainly an extraordinary song - click here for a RealAudio sample.

Paul went to school in St Mary's, Stillorgan, Co. Dublin. He grew up in Patrician Villas Stillorgan. He co-wrote the self aid song with Christy Moore and was always one of the good guys! from Mick C. who grew up in patrician villas with Paul.
