We are on day 4 of our new Thanksgiving song that is sure to be a repeat at Thanksgiving feasts coast to coast.
The fourth stanza is about making treaties and being friends. We need friends to help us in hard times and to celebrate with us in good times. The Pilgrims and the Indians became allies. They solidified that relationship with a treaty and an Indian tradition. Chief Massasoit, Governor John Carver, Edward Winslow, William Bradford and others solidified the pact by smoking a peace pipe.
For our song, we will take some literary license and say it was 4 peace pipes. The historic picture shows only one peace pipe but it was probably passed around to at least these four men.
Fourth verse including the first, "On the fourth day of Thanksgiving, we recount gratefully four peace pipes, three days feasting, two Indians, and a Mayflower on the sea."
Catchy so far, huh?
