Broadside Ballads, Vol. 5: Time is Running Out”, Folkways Records
Up tight! That’s right!
I ain’t gonna go!
Hell no!

I ain’t goin’ to Vietnam
I ain’t dyin’ for Uncle Sam.

Up tight! That’s right!
I ain’t gonna go!
Hell no!

I ain’t goin’ to Vietnam
I ain’t burnin' my brothers
to save the man.

Up tight! That’s right!
I ain’t gonna go!
Hell no!

I ain’t goin’ to Vietnam
The Vietcong's just like I am
Up tight! Up tight! Up tight!

Let's run it down, Brother Brown
Tell every Cat just where it's at
I've had enough of Charlie’ stuff
If he messes with me I'm gonna get rough.

Up tight! That’s right!
I ain’t gonna go!
Hell no!

I ain’t goin’ to Vietnam
That Free World jazz is all a sham.

Up tight! That’s right!
I ain’t gonna go!
Hell no!

I ain’t goin’ to Vietnam
Cause the U.S. Army is the Ku Klux Klan.

Up tight! That’s right!
I ain’t gonna go!
Hell no!

I ain’t goin’ to Vietnam
I got business in Harlem, Watts and Birmingham

Up tight! That’s right!
I ain’t gonna go!
Hell no!

HELL NO! I AIN'T GONNA GO!

Up tight! That’s right!
I ain’t gonna go! Hell no!
I ain’t goin’ to Vietnam,
I ain’t dyin’ for Uncle Sam.
Up tight! That’s right!
I ain’t gonna go! Hell no!
I ain’t goin’ to Vietnam,
I ain’t burnin' my brothers to serve The Man.
Up tight! That’s right!
I ain’t gonna go! Hell no!
I ain’t goin’ to Vietnam,
The Viet-cong's just like I am.
Up tight! Up tight! Up tight!
Let's run it down, brother Brown,
Tell every cat just where it's at,
I've had enough of Charlie’ stuff,
If he messes with me I'm gonna get rough.
Up tight! That’s right!
I ain’t gonna go! Hell no!
