  1. Fighting Mad

Lyrics

John had a job with decent pay
Until they shipped it off to a country far away
Then he found part-time work, but he couldn’t make the grade
The money sucked so he doubled up, and his anguish turned to rage
Well, he was out there too
Struggling for me and you
The whole country fighting mad

John Junior missed his dad, who was hardly home
Ever since mother died he relied on father’s hope
Too young to serve but old enough to share the grief
And the hardships that today leave us crying for relief

Say you care, see the strife
Feel the pain, and join our last fight
Because he needs you, he needs you
John Doe needs you, he needs you

John noticed tears running down his cheeks
Working 16 hours a day, he’d be evicted in a week
It’s now or never, sink or swim, went the plea from his son
He said, dad, we can beat these guys, it’s 99 against 1
Well, he was out there too
Struggling for me and you
The whole country fighting mad

John Doe packed his bags, nothing else remains
America is dying, and yet we get more of the same
All his friends are drowning, they can’t stay afloat
They had to jump when the water rose because it wouldn’t float their boats

Say you care, see the strife
Feel the pain, and join our last fight
Because he needs you, he needs you
John Doe needs you, he needs you
Oh, he needs you, he needs you
John Doe needs you, he needs you
