Scritta per la campagna del democratico Eugene McCarthy che alle primarie democratiche per scegliere il nuovo candidato in vista della fine del mandato di Johnson, presentò una piattaforma pacifista criticando aspramente il suo compagno di partito LBJ e denunciando la sua volontà di escalation in Vietnam.

McCarthy non vinse le primarie, gli fu preferito Hubert Humphrey, vice di Johnson che fu comunque sconfitto dal candidato repubblicano Richard Nixon.
If you love your country and the things for which it stands
Vote for Gene McCarthy and bring peace to this our land.

It robs us of the honor that our country's known before,
When we would not pursue a peace, and end an unjust war,
We are all responsible for what's done in this war
Democracy means that we can decide, that's what your vote is for!

If you love your country and the things for which it stands
Vote for Gene McCarthy and bring peace to this our land.

Our cities crumbled by a bomb dropped on a foreign land
And politicians stand and watch while the flames of hate are fanned
But the dream has not yet died, my friends, the times can still be changed,
With courage we can right the wrongs? and end our nation's shames?!

If you love your country and the things for which it stands
Vote for Gene McCarthy and bring peace to this our land.

Now that he's said what's in our hearts, alone he took a stand
He's echoed by more timid men who ask to lead our land
No one is to young to help, no effort is to small
Everyone must care this time, we all must heed the call!
