Performer: Alistair Hulett.
Lyrics: Pete Seeger.
Tune: Pete Seeger.


They say it’s darkest before the dawn.
This thought keeps me moving on.
If we could heed these early warnings,
The time is now quite early morning!
If we could heed these early warnings,
The time is now quite early morning.

They say that humankind won’t long endure.
Well, what makes them so doggone sure?
I know that you who hear my singing
Could make those freedom bells go ringing!
I know that you who hear my singing
Could make those freedom bells go ringing.

And so we keep on while we can
Until we have no, no more to give.
And when these fingers can strum no longer,
Hand the guitar to young ones stronger!
And when these fingers can strum no longer,
Hand the guitar to young ones stronger.

So, though it’s darkest before the dawn,
These thoughts keep us moving on.
Through all this world of joys and sorrows,
We still can have singing tomorrows!
Through all this world of joys and sorrows,
We still can have singing tomorrows.
