Don't You Put Me Down

  • (Alex Campbell)

    Don't you put me down
    I'm not to blame, you see
    The whole wide world around
    Mankind has longed to be free
    But a thousand tongues are weaving lies
    And a million eyes will not see
    That men are killed and chained and whipped
    And pass their lives in poverty

    Everywhere it's war
    And bombers roar in the sky
    Our leaders don't seem to care
    Say, Things will get better by and by
    But the bloodstained earth is sown with graves
    And no one hears the people's cry
    For peace once more, for peace once more
    A time when no one has to die
