Country Joe McDonald - War Hero lyrics

McDonald-Van Ronk

When I got back to my homeland
I didn't have a thing where my parts used to hang
So they gave me a medal and a fine harangue
And now I'm a bloody hero
Chorus:
Mourn for the dead world-family
If you want to be a hero follow me
Mourn for the dead world-family
If you want to be a hero follow me
Now the boys and girls all envy me
I fought for the military industry
Now I can't walk and l can't see
Now I'm a bloody hero
The cluster bombs and the napalm blasts
Automatic weapons and chemical gas
Technology built to last
Now I'm a bloody hero
All over the world there are spots
Where the war dead corpses lie and rot
And every corpse is a patriot
And every corpse is a hero
