    What Becomes of the Broken Hearted
    Jimmy Ruffin


    As I walk this land with broken dreams
    I have visions of many things
    But happiness is just an illusion
    Filled with sadness and confusion
    What becomes of the broken-hearted
    Who had love that's now departed?
    I know I've got to find
    Some kind of peace of mind
    Maybe
    The roots of love grow all around
    But for me they come a-tumblin' down
    Every day heartaches grow a little stronger
    I can't stand this pain much longer
    I walk in shadowsm searching for light
    Cold and alone, no comfort in sight
    Hoping and praying for someone to care
    Always moving and goin' nowhere
    What becomes of the broken-hearted
    Who had love that's now departed?
    I know I've got to find
    Some kind of peace of mind
    Help me
    I'm searching, though I don't succeed
    But someone look, there's a growing need
    Oh,…

    Imagine - John Lennon

    "Imagine there's no countries
    It isn't hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion, too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace... You...

    You may say I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will be as one."

    *Edited to add, also by John and Yoko: "All we are saying, is give peace a chance."

    One Tin Soldier - Coven
    (From the movie "Billy Jack")

    Listen children to a story,
    That was written long ago.
    'Bout a kingdom on a mountain,
    And the valley folk below.
    On the mountain was a treasure
    Buried deep beneath a stone.
    And the valley people swore
    They'd have it for their very own.

    Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
    Go ahead and cheat a friend.
    Do it in the name of heaven,
    You can justify it in the end.
    There won't be any trumpets blowing,
    Come the judgment day,
    On the bloody morning after
    One tin soldier rides away.

    So the people of the valley
    Sent a message up the hill,
    Asking for the buried treasure
    Tons of gold for which they'd kill.
    Came an answer from the kingdom,
    With our brothers we will share,
    All the secrets of our mountain,
    All the riches buried there.

    Now the valley cried with anger,
    Mount your horses, draw your swords
    And they killed the mountain people,
    So they won their just rewards
    Now they stood beside the treasure
    On the mountain dark and red
    Turned the stone and looked beneath it
    "Peace on earth", was all it said.

    Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
    Go ahead and cheat a friend,
    Do it in the name of heaven,
    You can justify it in the end.
    There won't be any trumpets blowing
    Come the judgment day,
    On the bloody morning after
    One tin soldier rides away.

    Yeah, showing my age, but this song was a huge hit when I was in elementary school, during the Vietnam war. Our music teacher was a hippie who taught the kids to sing lots of current songs. She would play this record over and over. Very deep.

    Border Song - Elton John

    Holy Moses, I have been deceived
    Holy Moses, let us live in peace
    Let us strive to find a way to make all hatred cease
    There's a man over there
    What's his colour, I don't care
    He's my brother let us live in peace
    He's my brother let us live in peace
    He's my brother let us live in peace

    FlightlessDuck is already on the wagon! I think we can pretty much count on any Christmas song for this one. :laughing:
