ALL MAN THE GUNS FOR AMERICA


And we'll all man the guns for America
And we'll all run the enemy home
And we'll all man the guns for America
Just be there when I get home

Come to me Mary, oh I wanna know
If you still love me, like you told me so
Meet me in the field
Underneath that old oak tree
Oh wont you say you will

When the rooster crows
And the train whistle blows
That's when I'll be gone
You see I got a job to do
My country is at war
But I'd fight the fiercest battle
And I'd cross the roughest land
If only I could be sure
I'd have my Mary's hand

And we'll all man the guns for America
And we'll all run the enemy home
And we'll all man the guns for America
The sooner it's done
The sooner we've won
The sooner I'll be home

In my dreams I hear
The cannon thundering in the night
But sometimes I wake up screaming
I've soaked my bed in fright
We'll tomorrow I'll be leaving
And I might never come back again
You know I said that I will
I'm a God-fearing patriotic man

Won't you meet me 'neath that old oak tree
Fast as I can. you see I've got my duty to do
As a God-fearing patriotic man
But I'd fight the fiercest battle
And I'd walk the roughest land
If only I could be sure
I'd have Mary's hand

And we'll all man the guns for America
And we'll all run the enemy home
And we'll all man the guns for America
The sooner it's done, the sooner we've won, the sooner I'll get home
The sooner it's done, the sooner we've won, the sooner I'll get home
The sooner it's done, the sooner we've won, the sooner I'll get home


A Steel Mill song played on 14 Aug 1970 at 7th And Marshall Street Parking Deck in Richmond, VA.
