"The Garden Song" David Mallett
"When The Rain Comes Down" Bob Devlin

I find many anti-war songs full of hope. Hope for a time when truly all weapons are beaten into plows, and the arts and intellectual pursuits can flourish without fear.

"Christmas in the Trenches" John McCutcheon
"Crane Over Hiroshima" and "Peace Is..." both by Fred Small
"Let the Band Play Dixie" by Bob Gibson,
among others.

Great thread. Thanks for refreshing.
