I'm gonna lay down my sword and shield
Down by the riverside, down by the riverside
Down by the riverside
I'm gonna lay down my sword and shield
Down by the riverside, study war no more

I ain't gonna study war no more
Ain't gonna study war no more
Ain't gonna study war no more
I ain't gonna study war no more
Ain't gonna study war no more
Ain't gonna study war no more

I'm gonna walk with that Prince of Peace
Down by the riverside, down by the riverside
Down by the riverside
I'm gonna walk with that Prince of Peace
Down by the riverside, study war no more

I ain't gonna study war no more
Ain't gonna study war no more
Ain't gonna study war no more
I ain't gonna study war no more
Ain't gonna study war no more
Ain't gonna study war no more

I'm gonna lay down that atom bomb
Down by the riverside, down by the riverside
Down by the riverside
I'm gonna lay down that atom bomb
Down by the riverside, study war no more

I ain't gonna study war no more
Ain't gonna study war no more
Ain't gonna study war no more
I ain't gonna study war no more
Ain't gonna study war no more
Ain't gonna study war no more

I ain't gonna study war no more
Ain't gonna study war no more
Ain't gonna study war no more
I ain't gonna study war no more
Ain't gonna study war no more
Ain't gonna study war no more
