Lyrics by Jimmy Cliff
Music:sung to the tune of "Vietnam"

Jimmy Cliff sang this at the Glastonbury Festival on 24 June 2011, changing the title of his 1960s anti-war hit "Vietnam" to "Afghanistan". His uncompromising anti-war message was broadcast to a huge TV audience..
Hey,
Afghanistan
Afghanistan
Afghanistan

Afghanistan
Afghanistan
Afghanistan
Afghanistan
Yesterday I got a letter
from my friend
fighting in Afghanistan

And this is what he had to say:
"Tell all my friends
that I'll be coming home soon

My time'll be up some time in June"
"Don't forget" he said
"To tell
my sweet Mary

Her golden lips are sweet as cherry"
And it came from
Afghanistan
Afghanistan
Afghanistan

Afghanistan
Afghanistan
Afghanistan
Afghanistan!

It was just the next day
his mother she got an email

It was addressed from Afghanistan
Now Mistress Brown she lives in the USA
and this is
what she wrote and said:
'Don't be alarmed'
she told me the email said

'but mistress Brown
your son is dead!!'
And it came from
Afghanistan
Afghanistan
Afghanistan

Afghanistan
Afghanistan
Afghanistan
Afghanistan!

Somebody please stop that war !
In Iraq
In Jerusalem
In Libya
In Syria
In Pakistan
In Jerusalem
In Libya
In Syria
in Sudan

We've gotta stop that war
People want to stop that war
Somebody stop that war
Everybody want to stop that war
We - We gotta stop that war

Vietnam – Remember
Vietnam – Remember
Vietnam – Remember
Vietnam..
Vietnam
Vietnam!

We gotta stop that war
Somebody stop that war
We gotta stop that war..

Sixteen Afghan civilians, including nine children, were shot dead in what witnesses described as a nighttime massacre on Sunday near a U.S. base in southern Afghanistan, and one U.S. soldier was in custody.
