This song is about the events of May 4, 1970, when the US National Guard shot 4 unarmed students at Kent State University in Ohio. Neil Young wrote this shortly after seeing a news report on the tragedy. It was released 10 days after the shootings.

Ohio Neil Young lyrics analysis
Tin soldiers and Nixon coming,
We're finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio.

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are gunning us down
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are gunning us down
Should have been done long ago.

What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

Tin soldiers and Nixon coming,
We're finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio.

Versione italiana di Riccardo Venturi
OHIO

Soldatini di piombo e Nixon che arrivano,
finalmente siamo per conto nostro.
Quest'estate sento i tamburi che battono,
quattro morti in Ohio.

Dobbiamo occuparcene,
i soldati ci stanno abbattendo a fucilate,
bisognava farlo già da tempo.
Che diresti se tu la conoscessi
e la trovassi morta per terra,
come reagisci quando lo saprai?

Dobbiamo occuparcene,

Che diresti se tu la conoscessi

come reagisci quando lo saprai?

Soldatini di piombo e Nixon che arrivano,
finalmente siamo per conto nostro.
Quest'estate sento i tamburi che battono,
quattro morti in Ohio.

OHIO

Nixon et ses soldats de plomb arrivent
Nous avons enfin notre liberté de pensée
Cet été j'entends les tambours
Quatre morts dans l'Ohio

Je dois y aller
Les soldats nous abattent
Ça aurait déjà du arriver il y a longtemps

Imagine que tu la connaisse
Et que tu voies son corps par terre
Comment pouvez-vous courir en sachant ce qui se passe ?

אוהיו

ניקסון וחיילי הבדיל באים,
סוף סוף אנו לבדנו
בקיץ הזה שמעתי את קולות התופים
ארבעה אנשים מתים באוהיו

אני מוכרח להגיע לשם
החילים מכים בנו
היינו צריכים לעשות זאת מזמן
איך תגיב לו הכרת אותה
ומצאת אותה מוטלת מתה על האדמה
איך אתה יכול להמשיך ולרוץ בשעה שאתה יודע

Can't you see the soldiers
I seen them marching
Whole lotta soldiers
I seen them marching
I seen tin soldiers, I hear them coming
We're finally on our own
This summer I hear the drummin'
Four dead in Ohio

Four dead in Ohio
Four dead in Ohio
Four dead in Ohio
Four dead in Ohio (Yah!)

Soldiers, I hear them marching
Soldiers, I hear them marching
Soldiers, I see them come
I seen tin soldiers with guns, they are coming
We're finally on our own
This summer I hear the drummin'
Four dead in Ohio

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are cutting us down, Lord
Should have been done long ago
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How could you run when you know?
When you know, how could you run?
When you know, how could you run?
Yah!

La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la

Tin soldiers with guns, they're coming
We're finally on our own
This summer I hear the drummin'
Four dead in Ohio

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are cutting us down
Should have been done long ago now
What if you knew that girl
And found her dead on the ground
How could you run when you know?
Tell me how could you run
Run when you know?
How could you run, run when you know?
You gotta tell me, tell me
How could you run?

Four dead in Ohio
Four dead in Ohio
Four dead in Ohio
Four dead in Ohio (Tell me why)
Four dead in Ohio (You gotta tell me)
Four dead in Ohio (Tell me why)

Machine guns, bullets flying
Children run, mothers screaming (Father, forgive them)
Machine guns (for they know not)
Bullets flying (what they do)
Machine gun, bullets flying (blessed are)
Children scream (the pure in heart)
(For they) The fellas run (shall see God)
Mothers mourn (blessed are, the meek)
(For they) Machine gun (shall inherit the Earth)
Carry my body (Lord, have mercy, forgive them), machine gun
(For they know not, what they do) Carry my body
(Forgive them, they know not what they do)
Jimi Hendrix would say
Machine gun, don't you shoot me
Don't you shoot me, don't you shoot me
Don't you shoot me, don't you shoot me
Machine gun, machine gun, don't, don't
Tell me why, you gotta tell me
I wanna know why, you gotta tell me
Somebody take the time to explain
Why the machine gun bullets are flying flying like rain

La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la

Four dead, Ohio
Four dead in Ohio
Four dead in Ohio
Four dead
