When Music Came From Wooden Boxes

  • (Harry Chapin)

    Remember when the music came from wooden boxes
    Strung with silver wires
    And as we sang the words would set our minds on fire
    For we believed in things
    And so we'd sing

    Remember when the music brought us all together
    To stand inside the rain
    As we joined our hands we would meet in the refrain
    For we had dreams to live
    And we had hopes to give

    All the times I've listened
    All the times I've heard
    All the melodies I'm missing
    All those magic words
    All those potent voices
    All the choices we had then
    How I'd love to find
    We had that kind of choice again

    Do you remember when the music was a glow on the horizon
    Of every new-born babe
    And as the sun came up to chase the night away
    Life was good
    For we knew we could

    Do you remember when the music brought the night across the valley
    As the day went down
    And as we hummed the melody we'd be safe inside the sound
    And so we'd sleep
    For we had dreams to keep

    I know something's coming
    It's more than just a dream
    And it's more than just tomorrow
    And it's more than where we've been
    It offers us a promise
    It's telling everyone
    I know that we've got something here
    Worth believing in

    Do you remember when the music came from wooden boxes
    Strung with silver wires

    (as sung by Iain MacKintosh)
