LyricsEdit

And so once again
My dear Johnny my dear friend.
And so once again you are fighting us all.
And when I ask you why
You raise your sticks and cry, and I fall.
Oh, my friend
How did you come
To trade the fiddle for the drum?

You say I have turned
Like the enemies you've earned.
But I can remember
All the good things you are.
And so I ask you please
Can I help you find the peace and the star.
Oh, my friend
What time is this
To trade the handshake for the fist?

And so once again
Oh, America my friend
And so once again
You are fighting us all
And when we ask you why
You raise your sticks and cry and we fall.
Oh, my friend
How did you come
To trade the fiddle for the drum?

You say we have turned
Like the enemies you've earned.
But we can remember
All the good things you are.
And so we ask you please
Can we help you find the peace and the star.
Oh my friend
We have all come
To fear the beating of your drum.
