In the town of Bethlehem many years ago
A man got religion and he changed the staus quo
He went around the countryside preaching brotherhood
And anyone who heard him, they knew and understood
Where there’s a will there’s a way
That’s what I always say
We gotta make a try,
Come on, it’s do or die.
John Brown‘s body lies a-mouldering in the grave
But in this land of freedom you will never find a slave
He fought for a cause, the cause of liberty
And if he heard this slogan, I am sure he would agree.
Well there once were thirteen colonies that wanted to be free
They held a couple of meetings, they knew what had had to be
They picked a man named Washington to lead them into battle
He said: if we win, some day we’ll have a world’s fair at Seattle.
And a message!
Well in this troubled world of ours we face another threat,
These nuclear explosions, they’re gonna kill us yet,
A-bomb, h-bomb, neutron-bomb, we must destroy them all,
We have got to rise together, or together we will fall.
