Nanci Griffith – If I Had A Hammer lyrics

(Pete Seeger - Lee Hayes)

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 a warning
I'd hammer out the 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 out danger
I'd ring out a warning
But 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 a warning
I'd sing out love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

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