I just get blown away everytime I hear
'Brother Warrior' by Kate Wolf. Does anyone
happen to know the inspiration or story behind
this beautiful song?

This song is on her Poet's Heart "album"
It is possible that during this time some
of the songs she wrote were about Eric Bogle.

Brother Warrior was written/published in 1984.

Kate was a guest on Prairie Home Companion in
1984 and 1985 and Austin City Limits in 1985.

In 1986 she was diagnosed with leukemia
in April, and passed away in December, 1986.

         Brother Warrior

Gentle warrior, with your heart like gold
and a rainbow in your eyes
Brave Companion, do you see a world
shining in the sky?
With our body dancing like an arrow
spreading joy beneath your feet
And your hands that wave like tall grass
in the wind as you speak
with the shyness of a small child
and the wisdom of a sage
I tell you now there is no reason
to be afraid

Brother warrior, there are none of us
who walk this path alone
Spirit healer, it's the only life
that we have ever known
I see your smile in the sunlight
I hear your songs in the rain
Hold you here inside me
feel your love an dknow your pain
At this time when the earth is waking
to the dawn of another age
I tell you now, there is no reason
to be afraid

We are crying for a vision
that all living things can share
And Those Who Care
are with us everywhere

It may or not be a metaphor for Eric Bogle (brother warrior, etc;) but it is, like all her material, a gem.

I had best stop now because I could go on for pages about KW.

Hi Bill,

   I, for one, wouldn't mind if you wrote a bit more about her -
what got me interested in her music was Nance Griffith's version
of 'Great Divide' (OVOR); Kate was such an incredibly gifted composer and performer, but I really don't know that much about her...
