[1963]
Dalla compilation "The Broadside Tapes 1"
Have you seen the rivers of the blood,
First a trickle, then a flood,
First the ocean's pounding roar,
Then a tidal wave hits upon the shore?
Knives and arrows fell like rain,
And the powder burst aflame,
And the flames they flew so high,
Dropped their poison from the sky.

In the shadow of the bygone days,
Millions died in a million ways.
Now the whining of the missile's call,
It's time to rise or it's time to fall.
For now one million bombs are stored,
But they keep building more and more.
And you hear the warning sound,
Don't you know there's time to turn around?

In the shadow of the bygone days,
Millions died in a million ways.
Now the whining of the missile's call,
It's time to rise or it's time to fall.
For now one million bombs are stored,
But they keep building more and more.
And you hear the warning sound,
Don't you know there's time to turn around?
Don't you know there's time to turn around?
