The War Drags On

Mick Softley / Donovan

E E7 A E
Let me tell you the story of a soldier named Dan.
E7 A E
Went out to fight the good fight in South Vietnam.
E7 A E
Went out to fight for peace, liberty and all.
E7 A F#m E
Went out to fight for equality, hope let's go!
Em7 E
And the war drags on!
 
Found himself involved in a sea of blood and bones. 
Millions without faces - without hope and without homes. 
And the guns they grew louder as they made dust out of bones. 
That the flesh had long since left just as the people - left their homes. 
And the war drags on! 
 
They're just there to make the people free. 
But the way that they're doing it, it don't seem like that to me. 
Just more blood letting, and misery, and tears; 
That this poor country's known for the last twenty years. 
And the war drags on! 
 
Last night young Dan had a nightmare it seems. 
One that kept occurring and reoccurring in his dreams. 
Millions of people running screaming and shouting loud; 
And right overhead was a big mushroom cloud. 
And there's no more war - 
'Cause there's no more world - 
And my tears keep fallin' down - 
Like the rain - on to the blackened ground!
