a dove in every hand

Chorus

I hear the thunder of our marchin’, the roaring of our singin’, the music of our laughter as we walk

I see the smiles upon the faces, I hear children in these places

We got a dove in every hand for every hawk

 

(A) You know it’s peace that we’re after, sunshine and laughter

The way that people touch when people talk

We’re tired of all the killin’, all the blood that we’ve been spillin’

We got a dove in every hand for every hawk    Chorus

 

(B) A dove in every hand for every hawk

Tryin’ to rule the world turns back the clock

We care about the Earth, we know what war is worth

For those who want an empire, it’s a shock   Chorus

 

(B) There’s no burnin’ bush or anyone I know

Who can tell us where we really need to go

So we’re out here in the street, voting with our feet

And we’re declaring peace from down below   Chorus

 

Coda

A dove in every hand, a dove in every hand, a dove in every hand for every hawk

I see the smiles upon the faces, I hear children in these places

We got a dove in every hand for every hawk (3x)
