Where Have All the Good People Gone

Well I’ve never seen the Rockies,
but this white top’s calling my name.
And if you’ve never seen the sun, man,
Don’t you ever come walk my way.
Cuz when the blind man walks and the deaf man talks
It will make you turn and say:
‘Where have all the good people gone?’

The paperboy screams at the newsstand
Proclaiming what he’s read.
There’s thirty-five dead in Baghdad
And our President’s lost his head.
Cuz when you fight fire with fire and everyone’s a liar
Then you’ll never come out on top.
Where have all the good people gone?

When they call my name no I wont be there
Cuz you know that’s not my style.
I’d rather give my life to Jesus Christ
Than run through the wind and fire.
And I don’t know what I’ve been told
but this God damn war has gotten mighty old.
Where have all the good people gone?

Well fire and rain was an old man’s claim
And there’s a lot of truth to that.
And when it seems like all has gone to hell
you need to realize where you’re at.
Cuz I’ve been there and back again
And it seems a whole lot like this mess were in.
Where have all the good people gone?

Well twisted lies and battle cries
Are no good if you ask me.
Cuz when children cry cuz their Daddy’s died,
Whats left for you to see?
And how many widows must be made
Until all is good and our men are safe.
Where have all the good people gone?
Singing where have all the good people gone
