    Funeral help

    Song identification

    I'm looking for the name of a very old song, all I can remember is that the chorus had the words "come what may, we believe in tomorrow" in it. It is not the song written by Ewan McGregor from Moulin Rouge, the one I'm looking for is older, probably from the 60's or 70's. Can anybody help?
