Listening to some old songs...

I got rdeck a CD for Christmas, a mix of protest songs from the sixties. Not all the ones I wanted, but there seems to be no extant compilation that HAS all the ones I wanted on it. But I got this one... because of one song.

A while ago there was a meme of "post the lyrics of an anti war song", and I wish I had thought of this one then. The lyrics in full are here

but in the meantime, I offer you the last verse, like a prayer:

So now as I'm leavin'
I'm weary as Hell
The confusion I'm feelin'
Ain't no tongue can tell
The words fill my head
And fall to the floor
If God's on our side
He'll stop the next war.

And may peace live with you all, this night, and always.
