From the recording David and Lezlie
Wisdom of the Dove (partial capo on 2nd in E), (543)
E EA6,7 G2 A7r3 E – G/E
Where are the poems that light the fires that melt all the frozen masks? Where are the tears, forged in steel, that stop the tanks in their tracks?
Where are the notes woven round that block anger’s way?
Where are the voices grown into one as pure as victory day?
G2 A7r3 Einv (E inverted)
Where will we find work for every hand?
Where will we find rock instead of sand?
G2 A7r3 Einv D/A
Where will we find the wisdom of the dove?
Where will we find love? Where will we find love?
Where are the gloves raised in cheer to celebrate the end of the shift?
Where are the hearts that call to us when we begin to drift?
Where are the hands shaking firm that bind word to deed?
Where are the visions, railroad big, to carry our country’s needs?
Where are the skies that shimmer hope after the tearing storm?
Where are the whispers in the night when the ramparts are shattered by the horn?
Where are the paths that do not care if you’re a woman or a man?
Where are the dreamers, young and old, reaching as high as they can?
Where will we find, where will we find love.
