No More War Blues

Al Willard Peterson

Lingua: Inglese

Lyrics & Music by Al Willard Peterson

"An original foot-stompin' protest song delivered with a passion and conviction that underlies the maybe somewhat idealistic Anti-War rhetoric that many performers avoid for fear of upsetting their peers. This track pulls no punches and is delivered in a Lennon-esque style yet retains the blues tradition".
I say hey now people just refuse to go to war (x2)
If we refuse to fight
We'll bring Peace to our shores
I don't care if you're Muslim, Christian or a Jew
If we all refuse to fight ain't nothin' our governments can do.
Refuse to fight, just refuse to go to war,
Then there'll be no slaughter, maybe no wars.
No Mai Lai, No Ho Gun Ri, No Hiroshima, No Nagaski
No Holocaust, No Palestinian versus the Jew
No Afghan/Iraqi blood shed
In the US Imperialist lust for oil (Makes my blood boil)
Say No to War
Don't Give Up the Fight (x2)
Stand up, Speak for you Humane Right..

I don't care if you're a Buddhist, Hindu or Sikh
Refuse to fight, except for Peace
Just refuse to fight, refuse to go to war
Then maybe One day, there'll be no more slaughter, no more 'capitalista' wars.

What makes a mini-skirted teenager a kamikaze bomber?
It's the oppression, the degradation, the humiliation and the rape
Of the people by the state,
Back in the USA, Back in the USSR, Back in the UK!
Back in the Vietnam, Back in Kosova, Back in the former Yugoslavia.
Did you know that 90% of the casualties in WW1 were military?
Did you know that 90% of the casualties in WW2 were civilian?
In every war since the greatest casualties have been you people - all you civilians!
Do you call that civil? Do you call that civilised?
The US calls it collateral damage too hide the blood and guts, after all
The safest place to be is in the US ARMED FORCES!
Don't believe the lie, believe in a 'Just Peace'!
