Not That Kind Of Music  
at home
At Home: the maine tour




Noel Paul Stookey & Jim Mason

"It's not that kind of music",
He said with a smile
"It's more about the message
And less about the style"
Then he played a chord and each of us
Would try to learn a part
He brought us all together singing music from the heart

It was a lesson in harmony and we'd make a joyful sound
It was a song about spirits reaching for a higher ground

Sometime he'd play the banjo
Songs from other lands
Sometimes it was the 12 string
Or just the sound of clapping hands
But there always was this moment
Kinda hard to understand
When the music became bigger than the man

It was a song about justice asking 'won't you take a stand'?
It was a song about a song to sing all over this land

No, "it's not that kind of music"
I still can hear him say
Though the 12 string's on the wall now
Waiting for a brighter day
I remember when it only took
One voice and one guitar
To bring the world together
To bring the world together
To bring the world together singing music from the heart
