This lyric is from a song in a musical -

but I can't figure out which one and it is stuck in my head and driving me crazy:

"but in the end the price for peace was more than I could pay."

The song is "Meditation II"

The dream has turned to ashes The wheat has turned to straw And someone asks the question What was the dying for The graves are filled with answers Each one just and true For all men finally reason What else could I do?

I heard the drums The distant guns I tried to turn away But in the end The price of peace Was more than I could pay I have no shame I lay the blame At someone else's door And so the seeds of hate are sown That blow from war to war What for O Lord what for

Now I keep hearing "O Shenandoah, I long to see you. Away you rolling river" in my mind.

If you'd quoted the line correctly, all you needed to do was type it into google.

I couldn't remember if it was "of" or "for". I had a suspicion that it was from "Shenandoah" but couldn't confirm. I haven't heard any of that music since the mid-80s. I love that score. Thanks for the help.

Great music in that show and a fascinating story. John Cullum sang "Meditation II".
