Tom Paxton - Peace Will Come Lyrics

Peace will
Peace will come
And let it begin with me

We need
We need peace
And let it begin with me

Oh, my own life is all I can hope to control.
Oh, let my life be lived for the good,
Good of my soul.
Let it bring

Sweet peace
Peace will come
And let it begin with me

    i swear i can hear mic feedback woof when i turn it up loud.. and i love it

  15. Barbara Mater

    Note to rogerstoryteller, it never caught on in the media.  It sure caught on with folks.  We sang it at parties and festivals and everybody knew it.  Guess that makes it a folk song.

  16. Pat Richmond

    Peace will come and new songs for old friends  are to be released for the first time on CD, can be pre ordered now via Amazon, I have waited so long for these... I love Mary Hopkin as well and she sings all over these ...

  17. rogerstoryteller

    Why this song never caught on and went viral is a mystery to me. It's beautiful and simple and calming - every thing a peace loving song should be.


    You are absolutely right there... :)


    This should have been an anthem. It's that powerful a message sung so eloquently by Tom!

    Don Simms

    I saw Tom at a small venue. After the show he signed my guitar "Peace will come". He makes me believe it

    d c

    our country was divided by the viet nam war. Some times during war - peace is seen as unpatriotic.

  18. Bruce Baginski

    One of my favorite songs of all time. I enjoy Tom Paxton's music. Please check out my version of "Peace will come" on my channel under my name. It's totally free to subscribe and please share if you like it. Glad to hear the original version of this song, too. It's one of those kinds of songs that would be a great anthem for all generations.
