Lyrics

Come on, people, come on, children Come on down to the glory river Gonna wash you up and wash you down Gonna lay the devil down, gonna lay that devil down Come on, people, come on, children There's a king at the glory river And the precious king, he loved the people to sing Babes in the blinking sun sang "We Shall Overcome" I got fury in my soul, fury's gonna take me to the glory goal In my mind I can't study war no more Save the people Save the children Save the country now Come on, people, come on, children Come on down to the glory river Gonna wash you up and wash you down Gonna lay the devil down, gonna lay that devil down Come on, people, sons and mothers Keep the dream of the two young brothers Gotta take that dream and ride that dove We can build the dream with love, I know We can build the dream with love We could build the dream with love, I know We could build the dream with love I got fury in my soul, fury's gonna take me to the glory goal In my mind I can't study war no more Save the people Save the children Save the country, save the country, save the country Save the country
