Non ho molte notizie su Les Rice, l’autore di questa canzone. Era un coltivatore di mele di Newburgh, Stato di New York, sindacalista nella Farmers Union, contributore occasionale di Broadside Magazine. Sua anche “Banks of Marble” (1948) che divenne uno dei cavalli di battaglia di Pete Seeger alla fine dei 50.
I can see a new day
A new day soon to be
When the storm clouds are all passed
And the sun shines on a world that is free.

I can see a new world
A new world coming fast
When all men are brothers
And hatred forgotten at last

I can see a new man
A new man standing tall
With is head high and his heart proud
And afraid of nothing at all

I can see a new day
A new day soon to be
When the storm clouds are all passed
And the sun shines on a world that is free.
