There’s a dark and a troubled side of life

In this country that we call the USA

We’re outnumbered by guns and under fire

And violence it happens every day



    Put all the guns aside, put all the guns aside

    Put all the guns aside right now   

    Sweep them up and melt them down, we’ll be safer down in town

    If we put all the guns aside right now


Oh the storm and its fury broke today

Crushing hopes that we cherish so dear

Another incident that causes us dismay

And more of us are living in fear




Let us greet with a song of hope each day

And keep working for what we know to be true

Hold the line, get out the vote and be brave

Together there’s no stopping what we do
