Senwa Dadende

Golden Sun
Oo la la lay, another evening fades away
You know the golden sun won’t disappear for long
Because tomorrow is another day

Bela mama


Hey Mr Miller
Hey Mr Miller, what swing do you bring to the band
with you trombone, and your saxophone
you can hear it all over the land

Jubilate deo

Hill an gully rider
This song is vesnianky: a ritual song calling in the spring season. A young, obedient woman listens to her father-in-law and pours drinking water for her mother-in-law, so that the older woman will stop her scolding.

Oj Borovaja

Oj borovaya Ziaziulina
Oj rekunano dobrovi
Woyaya
We are going,
Heaven knows where we are going,
But we know within.

And we will get there,
Heaven knows how we will get there,
But we know we will.

It will be hard, we know,
And the road will be muddy and rough,
But we’ll get there,

Heaven knows how we will get there,
But we know we will.
Woyaya, woyaya, woyaya, woyaya.
(Why don’t you…) Wade in the water, wade in the water children
Wade in the water, God’s gonna trouble the water

Sometimes I feel like a motherless child x3
A long way from home

I wanna die easy when I die x3
Shout salvation as I fly
I wanna die easy when I die.

A la nanita nana

A la nanita nana nanita ella, nanita ella
Mi jesus tiene sueno bendito sea, bendito sea

Fuentecita que corre clara y sonora
Ruisenor que en la selva
Cantando y llora
Calla mientras la cuna se balansea
War No More

War, war no more
Lay down your guns
By the river side
Lay down your guns and steel
Lay your weapons down
Ain’t gonna study war
Sto mi e milo (Macedonian)

Put Your Roots Down

Put your roots down
put your feet on the ground
can you hear what she says when you listen?

‘Cause the sound of the river
as it moves across the stones
is the sound of the blood in your body
as it moves across your bones
We Shall Be Known

We shall be known by the company we keep
By the ones who circle round to tend these fires
We shall be known by the ones who sow and reap
The seeds of change, alive from deep within the earth

It is time now, it is time now that we thrive
It is time we lead ourselves into the well
It is time now, and what a time to be alive
In this Great Turning we shall learn to lead in love
In this Great Turning we shall learn to lead in love

To my old brown earth

To my old brown earth
And to my old blue sky
I’ll now give these last few molecules of “I.”
And you who sing,
And you who stand nearby,
I do charge you not to cry.
Guard well our human chain,
Watch well you keep it strong,
As long as sun will shine.
And this our home,
Keep pure and sweet and green,
For now I’m yours
And you are also mine
The Storm is Passing Over

O courage my soul
and let us carry on.
For the night is dark,
and I am far from home.
Thanks be to GOD
The morning light appears.
The storm is passing over.
The storm is passing over.
The storm is passing over,
Hallelu….
Halelujah
Ha-le-lu-jah
The storm is passing over
Hallelu…
