This week we are featuring duets. Thanks, Hugh, for providing the prompt!

I like both of these artists, and when they got together to do this song, it was one of my favorites. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if this was a peaceful world.

“Peaceful World”, by John Mellencamp and India Arie, was released from the album, “Cuttin’ Heads”, in 2001. It was written by John Mellencamp, and is on the Columbia label.

John Mellencamp – Peaceful World Lyrics

Come on baby take a ride with me
I’m up from Indiana down to Tennessee
Everything is as cool as can be
In a peaceful worldPeople know this world is a wreck
We’re sick and tired of being politically correct
If I see through it now but I didn’t at first
The hypocrites made it worse and worse
Lookin’ down their noses at what people say
These are just words and words are okay
It’s what you do and not what you say
If you’re not part of the future then get out of the wayCome on baby take a ride with me
I’m up from Indiana down to Tennessee
Everything is cool as can be
In a peaceful worldRacism lives in the U.S. today
Better get hip to what Martin Luther King had to say
I don’t want my kids being brought up this way
Hatred to each other is not okay
Well I’m not a preacher just a singer son
But I can see more work to be done
It’s what you do and not what you say
If you’re not part of the future then get out of the wayCome on baby take a ride with me
I’m up from Indiana down to Tennessee
Everything is cool as can be
In a peaceful world

The money’s good and the work is okay
Looks like everything is rollin our way
“Til you gotta look the devil in the eye
You know that bastard’s one big lie
So be careful with your heart and what you love
Make sure that it was sent from above
It’s what you do and not what you say
If you’re not part of the future then get out of the way

Come on baby take a ride with me
I’m up from Indiana down to Tennessee
Everything is cool as can be
In a peaceful world

Lay back the top and ride with me
I’m up from Indiana down to Tennessee
Everything is cool as can be
In a peaceful world

Hey yeah
Hey yeah
Hey yeah
Hey yeah
