Inspired by our own Susan Stortini who recently had the privilege of seeing Buffy Sainte-Marie in concert, we decided to share some of her powerful music here.

I’ve been traveling around the world for a long time, finding songs in my head like snapshots of how I feel about what I see and the people I meet. I’ve had the blues now and then, but I’ve had all the other colors too; what’s remained consistent is my conclusion, which has always inspired my songs, that life is precious, diverse and worth protecting. – Buffy Sainte-Marie

Carry It On
Words & Music by Buffy Sainte-Marie

Hold your head up
Lift the top of your mind
Put your eyes on the Earth
Lift your heart to your own home planet
What do you see?
What is your attitude
Are you here to improve or damn it
Look right now and you will see
we’re only here by the skin of our teeth as it is
so take heart and take care of your link with Life and

Oh carry it on – We’re saying
Oh carry it on – Keep playing
Oh carry it on – And praying

That’s only temporary confusion
It ain’t governments that make the people strong
It’s the opposite illusion
Look right now and you will see
they’re only here by the skin of our teeth as it is
so take heart and take care of your link with Life

Oh carry it on – Keep saying
Oh carry it on – And playing
Oh carry it on – And praying

Look right now and you will see
we’re only here by the skin of our teeth as it is
so take heart and take care of your link with

Life is beautiful
if you got the sense to take care of your source of perfection
Mother Nature She’s the daughter of God and the source of all protection

Look right now
and you will see she’s only here by the skin of her teeth as it is
so take heart and take care of your link with Life

Oh carry it on – Keep saying
Oh carry it on – And playing
Oh carry it on – Keep on praying
