Story behind the song
This revision was spurred on by the comments of two women (duo) singersongwriters I met in the basement of Gerde's Folk City during the late 70s after they heard me sing the original. In this revised version I tried to say the same thing, but in a more positive way. Be forewarned -- "Ode to the Dove" has gone thru numerous melody/rhythm changes (as many of the musicians who have recorded various versions w/me will attest to ...). Oddly enough, the original seems to have come full circle.
Lyrics
1981, 2003 dbsongs One day in fairweather Some people got together They decided to try and restore the peace time they called on the dove in truth and in love ah -- they figured that dove could fly ...... They began to enlist by the word and the gift of knowledge all people need to be free the words they are known sung in strories and poems I am that I am -- and I shall be instrumental refraine for the people they found after traveling around up and down life’s various highways freedom comes from within to be is to win and love opens the door to understanding Chorus and so we became and so we became what we wanted to be and no pawn in a game and so we became and so we became and they say the world was never the same (sort of ...)
