The Revolution Starts.... Now!!! - Cease Fire!!
The Revolution Starts Now

Steve Earle singing 'The Revolution Starts Now'

at the Operation Ceasefire Concert in Washington DC

I was walkin down the street
In the town where I was born
I was movin to a beat
That Id never felt before
So I opened up my eyes
And I took a look around
I saw it written cross the sky
The revolution starts now
Yeah, the revolution starts now

The revolution starts now
When you rise above your fear
And tear the walls around you down
The revolution starts here
Where you work and where you play
Where you lay your money down
What you do and what you say
The revolution starts now
Yeah the revolution starts now


Yeah the revolution starts now
In your own backyard
In your own hometown
So what you doin standin around?
Just follow your heart
The revolution starts now

Last night I had a dream
That the world had turned around
And all our hopes had come to be
And the people gathered round
They all brought what they could bring
And nobody went without
And I learned a song to sing
The revolution starts now

Steve Earle - Rich Man's War

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A4bCVoMCeYY

Artist: Earle Steve
Song: Rich Man's War
Album: Revolution Starts Now

Jimmy joined the army cause he had no place to go

There aint nobody hirin
round here since all the jobs went
down to Mexico
Reckoned that hed learn himself a trade maybe see the world
Move to the city someday and marry a black haired girl
Somebody somewhere had another plan
Now hes got a rifle in his hand
Rollin into Baghdad wonderin how he got this far
Just another poor boy off to fight a rich mans war

Bobby had an eagle and a flag tattooed on his arm
Red white and blue to the bone when he landed in Kandahar
Left behind a pretty young wife and a baby girl
A stack of overdue bills and went off to save the world
Been a year now and hes still there
Chasin ghosts in the thin dry air
Meanwhile back at home the finance company took his car
Just another poor boy off to fight a rich mans war

When will we ever learn
When will we ever see
We stand up and take our turn
And keep tellin ourselves were free

Ali was the second son of a second son
Grew up in Gaza throwing bottles and rocks when the tanks would come
Aint nothin else to do around here just a game children play
Somethin bout livin in fear all your life makes you hard that way

He answered when he got the call
Wrapped himself in death and praised Allah
A fat man in a new Mercedes drove him to the door
Just another poor boy off to fight a rich mans war
