lyrics

where all the fathers gone?
fat and nimble, weak and strong--
where all the fathers gone?

they out broken at the break of dawn,
they broken at the break of dawn.

where all the mothers go
when the sun comes up over ol' saint joe? say--
where all the mothers go?

they out peddling songs of woe,
they our peddling their woe.

where all the brothers be?
when the swing hang still from the old rugged tree--
where all the brothers be?

they out casting nets in the sea,
they cast their nets in the sea.

so come on sister, sing along,
a world of war is a world of wrong
and our empty house don't belong
here in a world of wrong

the old door creaks at the crack of dawn,
it moans in a world of wrong.

where all the lovers hide?
cooing lips and plumes of pride--
where all the lovers hide?

they all bleed in the good lord's side,
they bleed in the good lord's side.

they all clasp their hands and cry
and bleed in the good lord's side.
