about

Song Of Love is the highlighted single from Charlie and the Rays' upcoming three-track EP, produced, engineered, and mastered by Kevin Salem in Woodstock, New York.

This civil rights song was composed in light of the current social and political environment in the United States. Recorded with the three band members encircling one mic, they create a true and genuine feel for the track. The folky, lyrical, harmony-rich style of Song Of Love reflects the energy and political force of socially and musically influential band, Peter, Paul and Mary. It highlights their three-part female harmonies and vocals, acoustic guitar, and sparks of harmonica.

lyrics

Oh my child, the cold's all gone they say
Do you know who blessed it away?
Oh my child, the girls are gone they say
Mama told them to go and hide away
Oh my child, the veils have disappeared
Can we weave them new with all our fallen tears?
Oh my child, my dear sweet child, show me all the ways to love again

Dear old man, with your hands in barren ground
DIfference ain't to blame for your field turning brown
Dear old man, with your glasses oh so round
Books can speak many things, but truth cannot be bound
Dear old man, you say the babes they run a'wild
They soon will be as old as you so be wise with her this child
Dear old man, my sweet old man, show me all the ways to love again.

Oh my friend, if color's what you fear
Gaze upon the setting sun and bask in what appears
Oh my friend, if change is what you fear
Bare branches they would tremble at the robin flying near
Oh my friend, judge of the unknown
Take my hand, with peace we'll drape sweet justice on their throne
Oh my friend, my dear old friend, show me all the ways to love again.

There's a child, there's an old man and a friend
They'll show us how to love again
They'll show us how to love again
Yes, together we will learn to love again
