Red River

....................................... Stone

....................................... Before they kill your sons and your daughters
................................................... they'll look you in the eye,
....................................... and call on all the mothers and wives
................................................... to salute them as they cry.
....................................... And they've told you of your freedoms and
................................................... they've warned you well of evil madmens' lies.
....................................... And we'll celebrate our sacrifice now
................................................... when we are told our child has died.


....................................... Red River is parting the sands in the cradle,
................................................... the fruit of the garden now taken.
....................................... To ashes and dust lay the lamb on the table,
................................................... his spirit has risen to freedom.


....................................... Johnny marches into battle with his banner high,
................................................... his truth clenched in his hand.
....................................... For his honor and his country he must
................................................... leave the young man far behind the sand.
....................................... He's a soldier brave and true, and his courage holds him
................................................... when he makes his stand.
....................................... And dear Johnny was my love, but a young man
................................................... died in a far off land.


....................................... Red River is parting the sands in the cradle,
................................................... the fruit of the garden now taken.
....................................... To ashes and dust lay the lamb on the table,
................................................... his spirit has risen to freedom.


....................................... (Instrumental)


....................................... And we march into the streets searching for a land
................................................... they call America,
....................................... passing thousands of the weary and abandoned people
................................................... watching everyone.
....................................... Some are hungry some are old and
................................................... some are dying in the cold, won't cry no more.
....................................... And the children of the storm of inhumanity
................................................... are crowding through the door.


....................................... Red River is parting the sands in the cradle,
................................................... the fruit of the garden now taken.
....................................... To ashes and dust lay the lamb on the table,
................................................... his spirit has risen to freedom.
