Mothers and Daughters, Fathers and Sons

Neil Diamond


One by one
Oh, and there they stood lost in the haze
With spirits blazing like the sun
Mothers and daughters,
Fathers and sons
They held the light
Yes they did
And it shined all night
Oh, all night
And they took the blows
Yes they did
Never letting go

Oh no, oh no

Oh no

And so they came with perfect schemes

And precious dreams that made them one

One by one

Oh, look up and see the eagles fly

And fill the sky beneath the sun

Mothers and daughters,

Fathers and sons

You hold the light

Yes you do

And you've got the right

Oh, got the right

And you'll feel the blows

Yes you will

Don't you dare let go

Oh no, oh no

Said that we have the right

Yes we do

It's down in black and white

Oh oh, oh oh

And we made it so

Yes we did

And we won't let go

Oh no, oh no
