Pete Seeger Lyrics

Everybody's Got A Right To Live Lyrics
We are down in Washington
Fighting against an age-old sin
Nothing but mass murder
Done by age-old men.

[Chorus:]
Everybody's got a right to live
Everybody's got a right to live
And before this campaign fails
We'll all go down to jail
Everybody's got a right to live.

Can't you hear the women and children
Over in My Lai
Screaming, "Lieutenant William Calley
Why do we have to die?"

[Chorus]

Our brothers and our sisters
Are demanding that we share
Soil, rocks, minerals,
The ocean and the air.

[Chorus]

No more some be rich
While others dirt poor
All around this world
We say "Poverty No More!"

[Chorus]

Here we are in Washington
Full of hope and pain
To see if some folks gonna listen
Or will they pluck their ears again.

[Chorus]

We haven't got much time left
The sands are running out
"Peace, Justice, Freedom
You can hear the whole world shout!"
