Song Description

This song lends thought to the concept that war is wrong and that if we refused to participate, then that just might put an end to war.

Story Behind the Song

I am a "child of the 60s" who protested the Vietnam War. I actually wrote this song way back then. Looking at the situation in the world today, I felt that the song needed to be updated a little. So, here it is.

Lyrics

I don't Want Your Old War
By: SD Gross
I woke up early one morning. Found I got a letter in the mail.
Some kinda shit from my Uncle Sam. Telling me to fight in some hell.
Well I don't want your old war boys. I don't want your old war.
You can take Vietnam and Word War 3. Cause I ain't fighting for you no more.

A little while later some man came to my door and asked me if I was the one.
I said I was he yelled you dirty commie rat and led me out the door with his gun.
Well I don't want your old war boys. I don't want your old war.
You can take Vietnam and Word War 3. Cause I ain't fighting for you no more.

Well everything went fine at induction time. At least they thought that nothing would go wrong,
Until I refused to raise my right hand cause Vietnam weren't where I belonged.
Well I don't want your old war boys. I don't want your old war.
You can take Vietnam and Word War 3. Cause I ain't fighting for you no more.

Now I'm just sitting here thinking. Let them put all of us in a cell.
Let them all go fight their own bloody wars. I's rather be in jail than in hell.
Well I don't want your old war boys. I don't want your old war.
You can take Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan cause I ain't fighting for you no more.
