I WAS BORN IN A FIELD OF CORN
IN THE LAND OF THE CHEROKEE
I DID MY CHORES BUT I KNEW THERE WAS MORE
THAN MY EYES COULD SEE
I MARRIED YOUNG, HE WAS BRAVE AND STRONG
BUT HE DIED FIGHTING FOR HIS CREED
I TOOK HIS PLACE BUT I VOWED SOMEDAY
THAT WE WOULD LIVE IN PEACE 
LET THERE BE PEACE, LET THERE BE LOVE
LET LIFE FLY FREE AS THE MOURNING DOVE
LET EVERY HEART HEAR THIS SONG I SING
LET THERE BE LOVE, LET THERE BE PEACE 
THE WARS RAGED ON TO THE WARRIOR’S SONG
BUT A CHANGE WHISPERED THROUGH THE WIND
“THE WHITE MAN’S HEART BEATS THE SAME AS OURS
WHEN WILL WE UNDERSTAND?”
OUR CHILDREN DIED AND THE WHITE WOLF CRIED
“ALL YE PEOPLE LAY DOWN YOUR GUNS!”
IT’S TIME TO LEAD OUR HEARTS TO PEACE
THAT WE MAY LIVE AS ONE 
(REPEAT CHORUS)
NOW I AM OLD BUT MY STORY’S TOLD
MAY IT GROW AS THE YEARS GO BY
AND WHEN YOU SEE A WHITE SWAN’S WING
KNOW I AM STILL ALIVE 
(REPEAT CHORUS)
