Come Let Us Build a New World Together

written spring, 1964

#11  on list of all songs


Listen to the archival recording: Come Let Us Build a New World Together


Come Let Us Build a New World Together

Come hand and hand all good people
There is a job to be done
And we will meet beneath the moon
And march beneath the burning sun

Come let us build a new world together
The time is now or the time is never
Come let us build a new world together

To each of us comes sweat and pain
To each one grief and woe
But on this earth of loss and gain
Together we can bring light to each soul

Come let us build a new world together
The time is now or the time is never
Come let us build a new world together

Someday we will build a new world together
And then our job will be done
Someday beneath the silver moon
Someday beneath the burning sun

Come let us build a new world together
The time is now or the time is never
Come let us build a new world together


Read about this song in Freedom Songs, My Journey through 1964

First see the poster in Chapter V - Lynch Street (in Jackson, Mississippi). Write about the song in Chapter X - SDS - in Chicago.


[Recording differs in a few places from words on this page - men and man were replaced by people and one as the use of man and men to stand for both sexes I stopped using long ago and don't feel comfortable with.]
