I’d weave a magic strand

Oh, had I a golden thread

And a needle so fine
I’d weave a magic strand
Of rainbow design
Of rainbow design.

In it I’d weave the bravery
Of women giving birth,
In it I’d weave the innocence
Of children of all the earth,
Children of all the earth.

Show my brothers and sisters
My rainbow design,
Bind up this sorry world
With hand and heart and mind,
Hand and heart and mind.

Far over the waters
I’d reach my magic band
To every human being
So they would understand,
So they’d understand.

Oh, had I a golden thread
And needle so fine
I’d weave a magic strand
Of rainbow design
Of rainbow design.



Oh, Had I A Golden Thread – Joan Baez – 1967



Lyrics by Pete Seeger as sung by Joan Baez.
