The Ballad of Jerry Norman Duffy
(Larry Estridge)
Ballad Of The Unknown Soldier
(Barbara Dane)


Let there be no mistake about it
let there he no mistake at all
Though many hardy nations nations
have risen then also fall

You know some have tried to drag down the whole world in their death throes
None may try as hard as an unchanging America
And none may come as close as America
And none may come as close as America

Just look at that little girl.
she is running down the road
She is screaming for her life
and she is tearing off her clothes
Her back it is melting like an ice cream cons
Just some napalm bombs they went a little wrong

But it's just the war
and it's just the war
We've all heard about such things before
It's just the war
and it's just the war
We've all seen such things before

Well I didn't grow on any farm
but I love the land
but I know our polices in Vietnam
Where destroying the sole is but
one part of the plan
one part of the plan

But it's just the war
and it's just the war
We've all heard about such things before
It's just the war
and it's just the war
We've all seen such things before

We've made a land
where thing just will not grow
We've made a land
where babies are born each day deformed
Well I know we've been told.
we nave to stop those communist beasts
And that the ending is always just out of reach
just out of reach

But it's just the war
and it's just the war
We've all heard about such things before
It's just the war
and it's just the war
We've all seen such things before

We've ell seen magazines
movies and picture books
We are familiar with those tortured asian looks
But I've got to admit it still gets me a little bit shook
To hear my country.. bragging about
killing gooks
just killing gooks

But it's just the war
and it's just the war
We've all heard about such things before
It's just the war
and it's just the war
so much easier said when
it's ten thousand miles from your shore.

Let there be no mistake about it
let there he no mistake at all
Though many hardy nations nations
have risen then also fall

You know some have tried to drag down the whole world in their death throes
None may try as hard as an unchanging America
And none may come as close as America
And none may come as close as America
