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 we 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
