Subject: Lyr Add: THE MUSIC OF HEALING (Tommy Sands)
From: GUEST,AMC
Date: 16 Jul 05 - 01:35 AM

Is it this one about the guns of thunder?

                        The Music of Healing
(Written by Tommy Sands - A song of hope for Ireland, written for the Peace Accord in Ireland in 1998)

I don't beat the drums for they frighten the children
Don't sing me songs about winning or losing
Sit down beside me, our green fields are bleeding
Sing me the music of healing
Sing me a song about a lover returning
The darker the night, the nearer the morning
Sing me a song about 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 peace is like a hare in the cornfield
You know that she's there
but you can't put your arms round it
All you can do, is follow the footprints
Sing me the music of healing

I never knew I could be so contented
To learn I was wrong after all of my roaming
I've learned to be hard
But I've learned how to tremble
Sing me the music of healing                        

Somehow the cycle of vengeance keeps turning
Till each other's sorrows and songs we start learning
Peace is the prize for all who are daring
Sing me the music of healing

If time is your friend
For 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

no, unfortunately, this is not the song.
But this Tommy Sands Song is even interesting.
The Song SOUND OF THE THUNDER is from VIC MUTCH.
Who knows more about?

Uwe,

no help yet, but could you give us the first line or the first lines of the chorus?
The Fureys often change the titles of the songs when they pick them up from others. I guess the reason is they do not intend to pay royalties. There are many such instances in their repertoire and the song may be known to someone here but not under this title.

Parts of that song I don't understand.
It's a song about Horse races
Here the words:

Chorus:
Heard the sound of the Thunder, I heard the sound on the earth
Heard the sound of the Thunder, for who's on the Turf.
Verses:
I saw you at the ...., in the County Kildare
where I've ............. with your long black hair.

Then I saw you on ......................................
I knew a beautiful Cup it was waiting for you

And I had a big dream when you walked round that ring
The ......................... sure I knew you would win

A bonny desire I felt it inside
When I looked at you sure you filled me with pride

And the race course was crowded when the ...... came in
Down there are ........ to see who would win.

No, I didn't worry, I didn't care
I put all my money upon the black mare.

The starter he shouted, stay back from the line
The black mare from Ireland should I knew she was fine.

And know how we shouted when she crossed the line
She was the first in the Gold Cup and the winner was mine

THE SOUND OF THE THUNDER is also on "We Dreamed Our Dreams: A Celebration of St. Patrick's Day" featuring Finbar Furey & The BBC Concert Orchestra, BBC CD #53, 2001.

I listened to a sound sample, and I can only make a few corrections:

... you would win
A burning desire, how I felt it deep inside
When I looked at you, you filled me with pride.

CHORUS: Hear the sound of the thunder. Hear the sound on the earth.
Hear the sound of the thunder, four hooves* on the turf.

now I can answer my own question:
Sound of the Thunder

Heard the sound of the Thunder, I heard the sound on the earth
Heard the sound of the Thunder, for who's on the Turf.

I saw you at the Curragh, in the County Kildare
where you flew like a dream with your long black hair.

Then I saw you on Airdrie and at Doncaster too
I knew the Gold Cup it was waiting for you

And I had a big grin when you walked round that ring
And me just a punter, sure I knew you would win

A burning desire, how I felt it inside
When I looked at you sure you filled me with pride

And the race course was crowded when the punters came in
Down there at Cheltenham to see who would win.

No, I didn't worry, no, I didn't care
I put all my money upon the black mare.

And the starter he shouted, stay back from the line!
The black mare from Ireland sure I knew she was fine.

And oh how we shouted as she crossed the line
She was the first in the Gold Cup and the winner was mine

It has to be "four hooves on the turf" not "for Who's on the turf".
