Artist: John Kay & Steppenwolf
He was barely a man that morning
When he got on that plane
In his pocket some music
And pictures of home
A few days later he's lying in the jungle
Beneath the pouring rain
Listening to songs of freedom
Feeling scared and alone
Can anybody tell me why I'm here?
Where's the rhyme? Where's the reason?
It's all so crazy, it's madness over here
Just who are we fighting for
The guys back home, they're feelin' no pain
Yeah, they're living and lovin'
While we are flyin', dancin' and dyin'
In this rock 'n roll war
Everything looked the same that morning
When he came home again
In his baggage some medals
And memories of war
But he was different, changed forever
And out of touch with time
Walking the streets of home
He felt lost and alone
Can anybody tell me where I am?
I feel like a stranger
Some call me hero, some have called me names
Some don't call anymore
I made it home, but I'm still in pain
I'm not livin' or lovin'
For I'm still flyin', fightin' and dyin'
In that Rock n' Roll war
Tell everybody I feelin' better
It's been slow but I'm healing
Through mother earth and father time
I don't hurt like before
I love a good woman, we have a son
He's our joy, our salvation
May he never fly in, fight in or die
In some rock 'n roll war
Tell everybody I'm doin' all right
Yes, I'm livin' and lovin'
For I'm done flyin', livin' and dyin'
In that rock n' roll war
