|I've Got To Know -
Why Do Your Warships
Why do your warships sail on my ocean?
Why do your bombs fall down from my sky?
Why do you burn all my towns and my city?
I wanna know, oh yeah, I wanna know
Tell me, why do these ships
Bring dead to my people, everwhere?
You got nuclear missels, oh, you got cannons
Tell me, why can't
Why can't that same old ship not turn around
And bring food and a little clothing, yeah
I wanna know, I wanna know
I've got to know
* I took these lyrics from a DVD (A Vision Shared - A Tribute to Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly). There are some spoken comments during the singing of the vocal group Sweet Honey In The Rock, so I couldn't understand all verses.
