You'Ll Never Keep Us Kids Down Again - Poem by Ray Hansell

You'll never keep us kids down again
You'll never keep us kids down again
You did it before
But you'll do it no more
You'll never keep us kids down again

We carried out Pickett signs
To wake people up to the changing times
You shot us at school (Kent State)
You were the fools
You'll never keep us kids down again

Oldsters said our music was bad
The news about us was always sad
Well, we helped stop a war (Vietnam)
On far and distant shore
It took us years to win
Some will never know where we've been
You tried it before
But you'll do it no more
You'll never keep us kids down again
No, you'll never keep us kids down again


The Vietnam war era my youth.
