LYDIA: We raise cattle, we raise pigs
Like our moms and daddies did
We fatten and we butcher them
That’s the way it’s always been

NANCY: We hunt bear and we hunt deer
Like our elders taught us here
With bows and arrows carved of stone
That’s the way we’ve always known

BOTH: But we both want the same thing
Different though we seem
Our children fed, and a good roof over our heads
When it rains
We both share the same dream
For our families
That one day we all may
Live together in peace

LYDIA: We spin cotton, we spin yarn
Build our houses, build our barns
We make plows and wagon wheels
And whiskey in the still

NANCY: We weave baskets we tan hides
We make medicine and dyes
We grow corn, beans and rice
And tobacco for our pipes

BOTH: But we both want the same thing
Different though we seem
Clothes to wear, the right to say our prayers
As we please
We both share the same dream
For our families
That one day we all may
Live together in peace

BOTH: We both want the same thing
Different though we seem
Our children fed and a good roof over our heads
When it rains
We both share the same dream
For our families
That one day we all may
Live together in peace

LYDIA: Tell your people, I’ll tell mine
We’re gonna get a long just fine

NANCY: It’s up to us, the women folk
To spread the word of hope.

LYDIA: We don’t want no battlefields
No widowed wives, no orphaned children

NANCY: Tell ‘em now we’ve had enough
It’s time we learned to love

BOTH: We both want the same thing
Different though we seem
Red or white, the right to live our lives
As we please
We both share the same dream
For our families
That one day we all may
Live together in peace
Oh, one day we may
Live together in peace
