Comment: Jake and the Jackhammers was the college
band for which I was the keyboard player and singer.
Our take on this classic. Remember it was the 80's.

Newspaper said another child was dead
Wonder when the killing will cease
I think we're still slaves
heading towards our graves never to really know some peace.
I get so tired of the bullets that are fired
at people I don't even know
I'm tired of the lies
the useless enterprise
Oh god I want to go home
Comin for to carry me home
Swing low sweet chariot
coming for to carry me home
