Excerpt from lyrics:
How Does A Patriot Act
by Sonny Meadows
Tell me how does a patriot act?
Does she face her flag?
Does she turn her back…
on the rhyme and the reason history has told?
Puts her hand on her heart and sells her soul…
Peace Couple has an ongoing project called Peace Song of the Day. We find and list songs which inspire peace and justice, and express the value of nonviolence.
This week, we are trying something new. We are focusing on one, particular artist, who has written a whole catalogue of peace and justice songs…
Sonny Meadows is a Long Island singer/songwriter. We know Sonny from the activist trail. Over the years, he has supported projects to end the wars, support green values, help the environment, and ask for tolerance for immigrants. His songs reflect all of those issues.
Sonny has been part of various bands, including Blacklisted & The Banned and The Defibrillators. You can learn more about Sonny Meadows at his webpage: www.sonnymeadows.com
