Protocol by Gordon Lightfoot is the Peace Song of the Day for February 22nd. This song asks…
“Who are the ones who would lead us now to the sound of a thousand guns?”

Hat Tip: Found this song among a very good resource at Wikipedia, List of Anti-War Songs. Recently, I have found several songs off of this list. The list is extensive, eclectic, fun, and very helpful. (Though, many of the songs use strong language that don’t match our projects goal of being sing-a-long style. Yet, songs with the F bomb and other wild language are still useful for poets and other grown-ups.)
The Peace Song of the Day is a project of Duke Augustus and Duchess Susanna, The Duke and Duchess of Peace. The Duke and Duchess recognize that one of the paths to peace is to find soulful and nonviolent entertainment, and to express oneself with art and song.
Published February 22, 2012 as a catch-up session for the daily song project.
