DThey say the Bmskies of LebaGnon are burniDng, Those mighty cedars bleeding in the heat. They're showing pictures on the television Women and children dying in the street. GAnd we're still at it in our Aown place, Still trying to reaDch the fuGture through the Bmpast. Still trying to caGrve toAmorrow from a tDombstBmone...

Chorus

But hGey, don't Dlisten to me! GThis wasn't meBmant to be no sGad soDng. GWe've heAard too Dmuch of that before. RGight now I onAly want to Dbe here with yGou 'til the mBmorning dAew comes fDalling. GAnd I wanna take you to the iDsland, G Trace your foAotprints in the sDand. GAnd in the eAvening when the sDun goes dowGn We'll maBmke love to thAe sound of Dthe ocean. DThey're raising Bmbanners Gover by the mDarkets, Whitewashing slogans on our shipyard walls. Witchdoctors praying for a mighty showdown - No way our holy flag is gonna fall. GUp here we sacrifice our Achildren to feed the Dworn-out Gdreams of yesBmterday, And teach them Gdying will Alead us into Dglory.Bm..

Chorus

But hGey, don't Dlisten to me! GThis wasn't meBmant to be no sGad soDng. GI've sAung too Dmuch of that before. RGight now I onAly want to Dbe here with yGou 'Til the mBmorning dAew comes fDalling. GAnd I wanna take you to the iDsland, GTrace your fooAtprints in the saDnd. GAnd in the eAvening when thereD's no one aGround, We'll maBmke love to thAe sound of Dthe ocean. DNow I know us Bmplain folks Gdon't see all the sDtory, And I know this peace and love's just copping out. And I guess these young boys dying in the ditches Is just what being free is all about. And how this Gtwisted wreckage down on mAain street Will bring us Dall Gtogether in thBme end And we'll go Gmarching dAown the road to DfreedGom DFreedBmom DFreedGom
