Peter, Paul and Mary

Peter, Paul and Mary were a US folk-singing trio whose nearly 50-year career began with their rise to become a paradigm for 1960s folk music. The trio was composed of Peter Yarrow, Paul Stookey and Mary Travers. After the death of Mary Travers in 2009, Yarrow and Stookey continued to perform as a duo under their individual names. more »

We came to a new world
Tired of the old one
Hungry for freedom
And heavy with prayer

It was a beautiful treasure
Ours for the taking
Never mind that someone
Was already there

Invisible people
We were climbing in numbers
In just a few generations
Frontiers to conquer
And fortunes to make

So we hitched up our wagons
And pushed ever onward
Never a thought for
What lay in our wake

Invisible people
We can't see their tears
They still cry out
But no one can hear
Invisible people
Hey, yay,yay, yay, yay, yay, yay
Hey, yay, yay, yay, yay, yay, yay

Shattered in spirit
Promises broken
Hunters and healers
Now refugees

Tell me who is the savage
Who is the savior
When a people are ravaged
By hatred and greed

Invisible people
We come for the bargains
With flags for the children
Acres of parking
Opening day

But under the asphalt
The pride of a nation
Is buried forever
In the home of the brave

Invisible people
We can't see their tears
They still cry out
But no one can hear
Invisible people
Hey, yay, yay, yay, yay, yay, yay
Hey, yay, yay, yay, yay, yay, yay
Hey, yay, yay, yay, yay, yay, yay
