"Peaceful" is a song written by Kenny Rankin, and recorded by several artists. It is best known as a 1973 hit single for Helen Reddy.

Introduced by Rankin on his 1967 debut album Mind Dusters on Mercury Records, "Peaceful" was recorded by Bobbie Gentry for her 1968 album Local Gentry on Capitol Records and a 1969 single by Georgie Fame - produced by Mike Smith and arranged/conducted by Keith Mansfield for CBS - reached #16 UK that summer. Fame''s version of "Peaceful" had a concurrent single release in the US by Epic Records, prompting Mercury to issue Rankin''s original track as a single but neither single charted. "Peaceful" was also recorded in 1969 by the Friends of Distinction for their Grazin'' album on RCA.

Rankin re-recorded the song in 1972, in a new arrangement for his album Like a Seed, his Atlantic Records debut and first chart appearance. That same year Helen Reddy recorded "Peaceful" for her 1972 I Am Woman album. Issued as the follow-up to the #1 hit "I Am Woman" in February 1973 and rising as high as #3 in St. Louis and #2 in Chicago (WCFL), Reddy''s version of "Peaceful" peaked at #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 that May. "Peaceful" also became Reddy''s second consecutive #2 Easy Listening hit: the follow-up "Delta Dawn" would be Reddy''s first Easy Listening #1 (the first of six consecutive and eight overall).

In September 1996 Rhino issued a retrospective Kenny Rankin album with "Peaceful" as the title cut, the full title being Peaceful: The Best of Kenny Rankin.
