Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream
(Ed McCurdy)

Last night I had the strangest dream,
I never dreamed before.
I dreamed the world had all agreed
To put an end to war.
I dreamed I saw a mighty room,
The room was filled with men.
And the papers they were signing said
They'd never fight again.

And when the papers were all signed,
And a million copies made
They all joined hands and bowed their heads,
And grateful prayers were made.
And the people in the streets below,
They all danced round and round.
And guns and swords and uniforms
Were scattered on the ground.

Last night I had the strangest dream,
I never dreamed before.
I dreamed the world had all agreed
To put an end to war.
I dreamed I saw a mighty room,
The room was filled with men.
And the papers they were signing said
They'd never fight again.

When I awoke, twas but a dream, and peace a dirty word
I tried to tell them of my dream, but not a word they heard
And then I got me fighting mad, and I knew just what I'd do
I'd fight nonviolently for peace, until my dream came true
     "Last Night I Had a Happy Dream" was given a new
lease, when Ed McCurdy rewrote it as a peace song.  The
last verse was added by Linda Hirschorn. BL
