Lyrics

HEY DR. KING !
Written By: Billy Byron

V1
Martin Luther King your spirit of peace is still alive! People hear "I have a dream!" and hope comes back into their eyes. Shine your light from the world beyond. Let it shine on the Pentagon. And it wouldn't hurt to shine a little light on the Middle East. For peace!

CHORUS
Hey! Doctor King! Hey Martin Luther King! It's a rocky road to peace Where the bells of freedom ring Help us to turn the war-birds around We want to see the white dove Sail over ev'ry town... Help us to find a way To peace on earth

V2
I was drivin' in to work when that 9/11 terror came again. I saw smoke! I saw a plane!... but no crash, no burn and no flames. Hey doctor can you calm me down My brother's fightin' on foreign ground And ev'ry time I hear a jet roar into the New York sky I cry!

CH ( as above)

BRIDGE
They say: "Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!" I heard a sailor sing this Pearl Harbor song yesterday. Then a folksinger sang her song. She sang: "Where have all the flowers gone" Now I'm askin' you Doctor When will we ever learn?
Now big buildings burn And brave soldiers die Sad preachers pray, The whole world will see A mir-a-cle Of God's healing light... So let us pray - Hey! Hey!"

CH(above)

TAG
Show us the way! Show us today! (repeat) Hallelujah (repeat) Hey Doctor King!
