Note Of HopePete Remembers Woody

Went to kiss my sweetie, same as before;
In my face she slammed her door:
"Get out of my door, you got no peace pin on!
Get out of my door, you ain't got no peace pin on!"

Peace, peace, peace, peace, boogie for peace,
Wanna kiss my sweet, I gotta boogie for peace.
Looks like I'm gona, ain't got no peace pin on;
Can't kiss my sweet peach when I've got no peace pin on!

I dropped in my tavern, same as before,
Barman booted my out of his door;
Says: "Got out of my bar, you ain't got no peace pin on:
Get out of my joint, you don't have no peace pin on!"

Peace, peace, peace, peace, boogie for peace,
Wanna kiss my sweet, I gotta boogie for peace.
Looks like I'm gona, ain't got no peace pin on;
Can't kiss my sweet peach when I've got no peace pin on!

I went to visit heaven, same as before,
St. Peter slide me out of his back door;
Says: "Got out of my heaven, you don't have no peace pin on!
Got out of God's heaven, you don't have no peace pin on!"

Peace, peace, peace, peace, boogie for peace,
Wanna kiss my sweet, I gotta boogie for peace.
Looks like I'm gona, ain't got no peace pin on;
Can't kiss my sweet peach when I've got no peace pin on!

I visited Hell's hole, same as before,
Old Devil he sent me right out of his fire;
Says: "Get out of my Hell, you don't have a peace pin showing!
Get out of my Hell, you haven't got your peace pin showing!"

Peace, peace, peace, peace, boogie for peace,
Wanna kiss my sweet, I gotta boogie for peace.
Looks like I'm gona, ain't got no peace pin on;
Can't kiss my sweet peach when I've got no peace pin on!
