Day is Done        by Peter, Paul and Mary

 

Tell me why you're crying my son

I know you're frightened, like everyone

Is it the thunder in the distance you fear?

Will it help if I stay very near?

I am here

 

And if you take my hand my son

All will be well when the day is done

And if you take my hand my son

All will be well when the day is done

Day is done, day is done, day is done, day is done

 

Do you ask why I'm sighing, my son?

You shall inherit what mankind has done

In a world filled with sorrow and woe

If you ask me why this is so, I really don'r know

 

And if you take my hand my son

All will be well when the day is done

And if you take my hand my son All will be well when the day is done

Day is done, day is done, day is done, day is done

 

Tell me why you're smiling my son

Is there a secret you can tell everyone?

Do you know more than men that are wise?

Can you see what we all must disguise

Through your loving eyes

 

And if you take my hand my son

All will be well when the day is done

And if you take my hand my son

All will be well when the day is done

Day is done, day is done, day is done, day is done

The day is done, day is done,day is done, all of you singing

And if you take my hand my son

All will be well my son oh

If you take my hand my son

All will be well

 

 

In 1969, this song spoke to those of us who felt war was wrong on many levels.  Today, it also rings true for Climate Change, Domestic Violence and the overall level of violence perpetrated within our country on a daily basis.  Kindly forgive any/all typos as these old hands aren't as limber as they once were.
