Lyrics

Tin soldiers and Nixon's coming
We're finally on our own
This summer I hear the drumming
Four dead in Ohio

Tin soldiers and Nixon's coming
We're finally on our own
This summer I hear the drumming
Four dead in Ohio

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are cutting us down
Should have been done long ago
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

Tin soldiers and Nixon coming
We're finally on our own
This summer I hear the drumming
Four dead in Ohio

Listen children to a story
That was written long ago
About a kingdom on a mountain
And the valley folks below

On the mountain was a treasure
Hidden deep beneath a stone
And the people swore
They'd have it for their very own

Go ahead, go ahead
Children, I said go ahead
How many more?
How many more?


Tin soldiers and Nixon's coming
We're finally on our own
This summer I hear the drumming
Four dead in Ohio
Four dead in Ohio
Four dead in Ohio
