Lyrics

Would I (The Protest Song)
John Kumjian (ASCAP ©2006)

Got my right to have my free speech, got my right to counsel too
Got my right to hold a protest, go my right to question who
Got my right for my religion, got my right to be secure
Got my right to bear my own arms, got my right to keep process due

Chorus
Would I give my life for my country?
Would I pay for someone to?
Do I think about that soldier?
Who gave up life for nothing new?

Got my freedom, it?s always been there? So why question it right now
It?s my right, I was born into it. Don?t try to take my birthright now.
No one asked me to defend it? I?ve been lucky up till now.
We?ve no control of what?s decided?they tell me when, they tell me how.
