‘If I Had A Hammer’ Peter Paul and Mary - justice, freedom, love

There is much talk of "tools" in Scotland's healthcare improvement and it made me think of how I can use a hammer in an amateurish way to knock in some nails, take others out, but it doesn't make me a joiner or carpenter or in any way an expert with this tool.





"(Pete Seeger/Lee Hays)

If I had a hammer I'd hammer in the morning
I'd hammer in the evening all over this land
I'd hammer out danger, I'd hammer out warning
I'd hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

If I had a bell I'd ring it in the morning
I'd ring it in the evening all over this land
I'd ring our danger, I'd ring out warning
I'd ring out love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

If I had a song I'd sing it in the morning
I'd sing it in the evening all over this land
I'd sing out danger, I'd sing out warning
I'd sing out love between my sisters and my brothers
All over this land

When I've got a hammer, and I've got a bell
And I've got a song to sing all over this land
It's a hammer of justice, it's a bell of freedom
It's a song about love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

(as sung by Peter Paul & Mary)"  from My Songbook
