Vox Populi

Vox Populi: A Public Sphere for Politics and Poetry

Video: Laura Nyro sings “Save the Country”

.

Come on, people, come on, children
Come on down to the glory river.
Gonna wash you up and wash you down,
Gonna lay the devil down, gonna lay that devil down.
I got fury in my soul, fury’s gonna take me to the glory goal
In my mind I can’t study war no more.
Save the people, save the children, save the country now

Come on, people come on, children
Come on down to the glory river
Gonna wash you up and wash you down
Gonna lay the devil down, gonna lay that devil down

Come on people! Sons and mothers
Keep the dream of the two young brothers
Gonna take that dream and ride that dove

We could build the dream with love, I know,
We could build the dream with love, I know,
We could build a dream with love, children,
We could build the dream with love, oh people,
We could build the dream with love, I know,
We could build the dream with love.

Come on, people! Come on, children!
There’s a king at the glory river

And the precious king, he loved the people to sing;
Babes in the blinkin’ sun sang
“We Shall Overcome”.
