I AIN'T MARCHING ANYMORE (Phil Ochs) Phil Ochs - 1965 Oh, I marched to the Battle of New Orleans At the end of the early British war The young land started growin' The young blood started flowin' But I ain't a-marchin' anymore For I've killed my share of Indians In a thousand different fights I was there at the Little Big Horn I heard many men lyin', I saw many more dyin' But I ain't a-marchin' anymore It's always the old to lead us to the wars It's always the young to fall Now look at all we've won with the sabre and the gun Tell me is it worth it all For I stole California from the Mexican land Fought in the bloody Civil War Yes, I even killed my brothers And so many others But I ain't a-marchin' anymore For I marched to the battles of the German trench In a war that was bound to end all wars Oh, I must'a killed a million men And now they want me back again But I ain't a-marchin' anymore It's always the old to lead us to the wars It's always the young to fall Now look at all we've won with the sabre and the gun Tell me is it worth it all For I flew the final mission in the Japanese sky Set off the mighty mushroom roar When I saw the cities burnin', I knew that I was learnin' That I ain't a-marchin' anymore Now the labour leader's screamin' When they close the missile plants United Fruit screams at the Cuban shore Call it peace or call it treason Call it love or call it reason But I ain't a-marchin' anymore No, I ain't a-marchin' anymore (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2018)
