Subject: Lyr Add: THE MUSIC OF HEALING (Tommy Sands)
I see what appear to be a lot of mistakes. Here is the version as I heard it on the Tommy Sands' album:

Don't beat the drums that frighten the children,
Don't sing the songs about winning and losing,
Sit down beside me the green fields are burning,
Bring me the music of healing.
Bring me the news of a lover returning,
The darker the night, the nearer the morning,
Bring me the news of a new day that's dawning,
Bring me the music of healing.

Chorus:
Ah, ah, the heart's a wonder, stronger than the guns of thunder,
Even when we're torn asunder, love will come again.

Sometimes the truth's like a hare in the cornfield,
You know that it's there but you can't put your arms round it,
All you can hope for is follow it's footprint,
Bring me the music of healing.
Who would have thought I could feel so contented,
To learn I was wrong after all of my rambles,
I've learned to be hard and I've learned to be humble,
Bring me the music of healing

Chorus

Somehow the cycle of vengeance keeps turning.
Till each others' sorrows and songs we start learning,
Peace is the prize for those who are daring,
Bring me the music of healing.
Time is your friend, it will heal all your sorrow,
But who wants to wait for another tomorrow,
One step today and a thousand will follow,
Bring me the music of healing.

Chorus
