oh had i a golden thread lyrics – peter paul & mary

(pete seeger)

oh, had i a golden thread
and needle so fine
i’d weave a tapestry
of rainbow design
of rainbow design

far over the water
i’d weave my magic strand
to every city
through every single land
through every land

and in it i would weave the bravery
of women giving birth
in it i would weave the innocence
of children over all the earth
children of all earth

show my brothers and my sisters
my rainbow design
and bind up this sorry world
with hand and heart and mind
hand and heart and mind

o had i a golden thread
and needle so fine
i’d weave a tapestry
of rainbow design
of rainbow design

/ peter paul mary lyrics
