Om Shanti

Words and Music by Raccoon

As recorded on White Horse Ranch Session



Good mornin' and howdy

Om shanti (that means peace)

I say to the risin' sun

“Good mornin' and howdy

Om shanti” (that means peace)

 

This is the sound of the morning comin'

This is the sound of the day

Keep these two things in order

Everything will be okay

 

Here comes the angels of the mornin'

To spread their peace across the land

I want to fly like the angels do

How can I stop the strikin' hand?

 

Look what they’ve done to my land

Look what they’ve done to my land

Things would have been better

If I was here to lend a hand

 

Look what they’ve done to my friends

Look what they’ve done to my friends

Things would have been better

If I had a hand to lend

 

I’ve seen death and destruction

Steal a town before

This one’s caught in the whirlpool

I’m not comin' back here no more

 

Here comes the angels of the mornin'

Riding on a midnight wind

I wanna fly like the angels do

How can I rid myself of sins?

 

Up in the sky a new light’s shining

Lookin' for a righteous man

All around we are flyin'

Headin' for our Promised Land

 

This is the sound of the morning comin'

This is the sound of the day

Keep these two things in order

Everything will be okay

 

The sun says to me, “Good mornin' and howdy

Om shanti” (that means peace)

Good mornin' and howdy

Om shanti
