Hard to believe it's been 40 years...


Tin soldiers and Nixon coming,
We're finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio.

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are cutting us down
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

Tin soldiers and Nixon coming,
We're finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio.

There are still members of the Ohio National Guard trying to justify their actions that day.

This should NEVER happen again in this country.

Just a freshman in college at the time. So much shock and sadness at such a brutal use of force. Perhaps the most fractious and alienating action of government-related authority in response to the Viet Nam war protests. It was years later that I became aware of the the irony that the guardsmen were about the same age as the students (and just as worldly unwise) but nonetheless mandated to be the enforcers of "law and order".

Find the cost of freedom
Buried in the ground.
Mother earth will swallow you,
Lay your body down.

The 'B' side of "Ohio"
