Johnny Come Home

Language: English

Johnny come home
your grandma can't sleep at night
Your mother's distraught
because of this war
Your kid sister Lynn
has dropped university
She hides in her room
just playing "The Wall".

Johnny come home
we found out this war's a sham
They say that Bin Laden
is working for us
They're out on the streets
it's just like in Vietnam
They say that our boys
are killing for oil.

And we won't go down together
No we won't go down together, together…

Johnny come home
before it becomes too late
There's one name a day
for the Washington Wall
And Mister Abdilil
he hides in the alley way
His son, the marine,
was shot in the war.
