    A Peaceful Solution Story

    Imagine a dream where you sit in a large dark auditorium. There might be other people in the auditorium but you cannot see them or hear them. Up on stage Willie Nelson sings a song about a peaceful resolution.

    The beautiful song captivates you.

    Upon awakening you cannot remember anything except the words ‘a peaceful resolution’ and a deep feeling of peace.

    A long time ago, before September 11, 2001, Amy Nelson dreamt of being in her Dad’s audience. There in the dark she heard Willie Nelson sing the song about a peaceful resolution. The dream meant little to Amy back then.

    Now imagine Willie Nelson‘s BioWillie tour bus, the Honeysuckle Rose IV rolling across the Southern California desert April 29th, 2007, at 3:03 A.M. on the way to The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Amy had reminded her Dad about the dream and the song. She could not get the song out of her head.

    Willie Nelson said, “Hey look what I did. I wrote the song!”

    Amy grabbed her voice recorder and Willie sang “A Peaceful Solution” into the voice recorder.


    There is a peaceful solution. It’s called a peace revolution.
    Now let’s take back America.
    There’s a war and we’re in it, but I know we can win it.
    So let’s take back America.

    It’s a dream, so believe it.
    Now get ready to receive it.
    And let’s take back America.

    And when the war is over and we’ve won it
    let’s remember how we done it so we don’t have to do it again.

    There is a peaceful solution. It’s called a peace revolution.
    Now let’s take back America.
    There’s a war and we’re in it, but I know we can win it.
    Now let’s take back America.

    There was a peace resolution
    and a peaceful revolution
    and the peaceful solution saved America

    Help me to be the best Wavy Gravy I can muster
