Turtle Lyr/Chords Req: corrymeela (8) RE: Lyr/Chords Req: corrymeela 07 Jul 00

Well, if it's the one I'm thinking of, it's by Tom Paxton and I have it on a tape at home--I'll check over the weekend and bring the lyrics in on Monday (no Internet at home, alas). I don't have the chords, though--anyone else?

The chorus is something like:

Oh, Corrymeela, I need to rest myself,
I need to discover myself again.
Oh, Corrymeela, I need a peaceful vision.
Oh let my only decision be to lay down my sorrows.

Is that it?

As I remember the story, it's about a peace center (Corrymeela) in Ireland that Paxton visited. He told the story in a concert I went to about 15 years ago, and that's about all I remember. Maybe there was something about Catholic and Protestant kids coming together there, like some of the recent peace initiatives bringing together Palestinian and Jewish kids in Israel?

Anyway, I'll bring in the lyrics on Monday.
