Chuck Murphy: “Peace Be With You” – literate, poetic and mesmerizing!”

Jamsphere Magazine


Peace Be With You is a song that starts off talking about a sibling rivalry. I quickly realized, as I was writing, it could also be about the community, the country or the world in which we live. I have never lived any place in my life that did not need God’s hand; the wish or blessing of peace; and for people to leave the places they visit, live, and work better than they found them. 


You and I have been at war for a long time 
though we run the same blood 
As a child I was quite a warrior 
although it seemed you always won 
I remember back in ‘65 
on the battlefield one day 
I was hurt lying by the old house 
remember what the old man had to say 
Peace be with you Brother 
May the water flow your way 
Peace be with you Brother 
May you live a long day 
Years gone by 
but, we’re still at war 
Different battlefields 
I know 
I’ve been thinking about our destiny 
I wonder where we’re gonna go 
Look around the world’s on fire 
Filled with broken dreams 
Lets leave the world a little bit better 
with love and harmony 
Peace be with you Brother 
May the water flow your way 
Peace be with you Brother 
May you live a long day 
Peace be with you Brother 
May the water flow your way 
Peace be with you Brother 
May you live a long day

“Quite simply, he is another one of the great American songwriters of this era, writing lyrics that are literate, poetic and mesmerizing.“ – Rick Jamm, Jamsphere 

Chuck recently participated in The Ultimate Vocal Music Summit, founded by veteran composer-producer Dawn Elder, where he performed for the students and delivered a workshop about the nuances and flavors of folk/Americana/country music. The Summit was launched in 2015 by Elder and a group of her music industry A-list collaborators as a way to pay it forward to aspiring artists by providing mentorship, vocal and music industry coaching, songwriting, performance and production; giving students the tools to have long successful careers.  

“After releasing my new EP, and all the successes I have enjoyed with this project, I felt it was important to share my story with the next generation of artists!”
– Chuck Murphy 

Murphy has also created a “Behind the Scenes” version of his video for Peace Be With You, in which he explains the inspiration for writing and producing the song. 

“We need to get to the point again where we can open our hearts and our minds and embrace each other as a culture.”
– Chuck Murphy 

After 16 years of working together writing songs and producing music, the EP “Peace Be With You" is a labor of love for Murphy and co-producer Jeff Silverman of Palette Music Studio Productions

A remix of the title track, produced and arranged by Silverman, has been submitted for consideration for the 59th Grammy Awards. Murphy's band, Big Coyote, has put love and passion into this project with every note they have played. 

With his meaningful lyrics; beautiful arrangements, instrumentation, and vocals; and his kind and philanthropic nature, it’s no wonder Murphy and his songs are charting so well and winning so many awards.
