"Sons of", a wonderful song by Judy Collins



We file this one under the "time flies" category.

Judy Collins is 70-something these days.....Is that possible? Yes it is!

Over the years, we've loved Judy Collins' songs and beautiful voice.

Her biggest hits were "Both Sides Now" and "Send In The Clowns".

She also recorded one of the best versions of "Amazing Grace".

She won the Grammy Award (Best Folk Performance or Folk Recording) for "Both Sides Now" in 1968.

It's hard to pick favorite but I always loved "Sons of":

"Sons of the sea, sons of the saint
Who is the child with no complaint;
Sons of the great or sons unknown
All were children like your own

The same sweet smiles, the same sad tears
The cries at night, the nightmare fears
Sons of the great, sons unknown
All were children like your own

Sons of tycoons, or sons from the farms
All of the children ran from your arms
Through fields of gold, through fields of ruin
All of the children vanished too soon

In towering waves, in walls of flesh
Amid dying birds trembling with death
Sons of tycoons, sons from the farms
All of the children ran from your arms

Sons of your sons, sons passing by
Children were lost in lullaby
Sons of true love, sons of regret
All of your sons you can never forget

Some build the roads, some wrote the poems
Some went to war, some never came home
Sons of your sons, sons passing by
Children were lost in lullaby...."
