Subject: Lyr Req: Freedom Peacefully

"Freedom Peacefully" Are these all the words and is this the correct title

I have seen you tossing restless between midnight and day
paying back the debts of many years
oor staring at the window till the mist has burned away
and waitng for the sun to dry your tears
I've seen you young I've seen you old I've seen you lost and found
I've seen you sit and cry without a sound

And I've seen you in the lamplight with the hard lines on your face
and the shadows of your fears against the wall
but crying is no weakness and to lose is no disgrace
you see we're not so different after all
but can't you tell by the ringing bell the old years moving on
I'd like to say one thing before it's done

May whatever house you live in have flowers round the door
and children in the bed to keep you warm
may the people there respect you for what you really are
and help you find some shelter from the storm
and the morning rain to ease the pain that comes with being free
may the New Year bring you freedom peacefully

And the morning rain the ease the pain that comes with being free
may the New Year bring you freedom peacefully

I don't even know who wrote it, any ideas anyone

NEW YEAR'S EVE
(Si Kahn, 1974)
As recorded by Si Kahn on "New Wood" (1974)

I have seen you tossin' restless between midnight and day,
Payin' back the debts of many years,
Or starin' out the window 'til the mist has burned away,
And waitin' for the sun to dry your tears.
I've seen you young; I've seen you old, an' I've seen you lost and found.
I've seen you sit and cry without a sound.

And I've seen you in the lamplight with the hard lines in your face,
And the shadows of your fears upon the wall;
But cryin' ain't no weakness and to lose is no disgrace.
You see, we're not so diff'rent after all.
But can't you tell by the ringin' bell, the old year's movin' on?
I'd like to say one thing before it's gone.

May whatever house you live in have flowers by the door,
And children in the bed to keep you warm.
May the people there accept you for what you really are,
And help you find some shelter in the storm;
And mornin' rain to ease the pain that comes with being free.
May the New Year bring you freedom peacefully.


Only very slight difference from what you wrote, Raggy

Oh, I probably sing this one every year, with slightly processed lyrics.

Instead of:

"And children in the bed to keep you warm."

I tend to sing:

"And kittens in the bed to keep you warm."

But "dogs" would do as well as would other consenting adults.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble
