Rich(bodhránai gan ciall) A Peace Pledge (26) RE: A Peace Pledge 13 Sep 01


Tommy Peoples and Seán Tyrell played in Pittsburgh tonight. Seán sang this up-to-date version of an old song. I sat in the audience and choked back tears, especially when he said that they played in DC last night and had chosen this song for their set and only after did the significance strike them.


Rising of the moon

As we wander through the Universe on this dark winter's night
the children they're all dancing and the stars are shining bright
One more word must now be spoken out or sung to an old tune
Let's be friends this New Year coming at the rising of the moon.

So we gaze unto the stars that shine, with wonder in our eyes
Will we just destroy the planet or is peace to be the prize?
Cause the wail of fighting nations dims the beauty of the tune
Let's all dane the dance of Freedom at the rising of the moon

At the rising of the moon,
at the rising of the moon
Let's be friends this New Year coming
at the rising of the moon


May the wisdom of the Ancients with their message and their signs
come to shine on our tomorrows with the magic of their time
Like a star that shines on the wise men, Like the dawn that's coming soon
It's the truth that guides us onward at the rising of the moon

We can live within God's garden if we tend her with our care
We can understand the meaning and the motives of the fair
Though we stumble through the darkness trying far too much too soon,
Let's all stand up and be counted at the rising of the moon

At the rising of the moon
at the rising of the moon
Let's all stand up and be counted
at the rising of the moon


Lyrics by Padraig Stevens
