Do you really think you'd recognise him,
If he came walkin' up to you?
If he came back again, they'd hit him in the head.
And nail him to the doorway of their lies.
An' they would not blame each other,
But another crazy brother,
An' salute the flag an' mother when he died.
And count the blood red silver in their minds.
And count the lives of children like their dimes.
An' what's a dime, one more time?
New release. Mmm mmm mmm.
I'd like to sing our country's anthem,
But I can't seem to make it ring.
Old Frank Keyes, the man who wrote it,
Obviously didn't sing.
