Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Peace to the world

I see a baby in a crib
Reaching up for Mama's arms
Love is rising in their hearts - oh yeah

There is a man standing on the street
Shouting loud above the crowd
Saying amen to everyone one around - oh yeah

I see a man who loved his land
Laying lifeless on the ground
He said the time is now
To bring peace to the world
Say yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Peace to the world

We build a wall of stone
As high as the trees are tall
Higher then the mountains
Stronger then us all - oh yeah

Some day that wall will crumble
Tumble and fall, the sun will shine
And bring peace to us all
Say yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Bring peace to us all
Bring peace to us all

We build a wall of stone
As high as the trees are tall
Higher then the mountains
Stronger then us all - oh yeah

Some day that wall will crumble
Tumble and fall, the sun will shine
And bring peace to us all
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Peace to us all
Peace to the world

hey air_ace, remember when WABX's slogan was, 'the station that loves Detroit as much as possible'?
This entire album is great and so hard to only play one song. This is one of my favorites and not until today have I realized it is about building a wall that is doomed to fall. Hmmm.
one of the great american bands
And the Deadhead dancing chicks be spinnin' an' twirlin' again...

Nice theme.

Thank you Bill, for promoting peace through music. I think it's so important to take advantage of every opportunity in our daily lives to work for peace.

A very wise man once said…
"I charge you all that each one of you concentrate all the thoughts of your heart on love and unity. When a thought of war comes, oppose it by a stronger thought of peace. A thought of hatred must be destroyed by a more powerful thought of love. Thoughts of war bring destruction to all harmony, well-being, restfulness and content. Thoughts of love are constructive of brotherhood, peace, friendship, and happiness."


Yeah baby!

Seeing them play tonight outdoors for free. 

Long live RnR...even if its on life support.     
Nice Set Bill !

Guitar riff is very Chris Whitley.  Could use much more CW on RP.  Lobos IS amazing live - saw them last year - impressive.
 
I believe you meant to say that Chris Whitley's riffs are very Los Lobos.  Credit where credit is due.  But don't worry, CW also makes appearances here regularly.

 Freakin great.

But they just don't tour enough. 
 
Yup — also saw them once in the past decade, and they were awesome — far above my already high hopes. {#Angel}
