John Martyn.
John Martyn.
The army and the navy
They never will agree
Til all the men and all the boys
Are gone from our country.

Don’t you go
Don’t you go my son
Don’t you go
Don’t you go my son.

The proud and the powerful
In whose hands we lie
Never will be pleasured
Til all our women cry.

Don’t you go
Don’t you go
Ah, don’t you go
Don’t you go my son.

The mastery, the misery
Called the art of war
Must never try and foil world peace
As it has done before.

Don’t you go
Don’t you go my son
Don’t you go
Don’t you go my son.

The army and the navy
They never will agree
‘Til all the men and all the boys
Are gone from this country.

Oh, don’t you go
Don’t you go my son
Don’t you go
Don’t you go.

Don’t you go
Don’t you go
Don’t you go
Don’t you go my son.

Questo è il testo corretto di quella che è stata forse l'ultima meravigliosa canzone del compianto John Martyn che per tutti gli anni settanta ha creato bellezza traendo melodie inquiete dai fantasmi della sua giovinezza (vorrei ricordarne anche le interpretazioni di: Everything But the Girl nel 1984,Pinkie Maclure & David Harrow nel 1985 e soprattutto dei Capercaillie nel 2008)

(Flavio Poltronieri)

il testo è stato corretto.
