It's been a long time comin'
It's goin' to be a long time gone

And it appears to be a long night
Before the dawn

You can smell somethin' burnin'
But you don't know who lit the fire
You can feel pavement getting' hotter
You can see flames as high

And it appears to be a long night
Before the dawn

Turn, turn any corner
Hear what the people say
There's somethin' goin' on around here
The surely, surely won't stand the light of day

And it appears to be a long night
Before the dawn

Speak out, speak out against the madness
Speak your mind if you dare
But don't, no it's a special don't try to get yourself elected
And if you do, you better cut your hair

Because it appears to be a long night
Before the dawn

It's been a long time comin'
It's goin' to be a long time gone
But you know that the darkest hour
Is always just before the dawn, hmm

CROSBY, DAVID
