lyrics

It is the middle of the night, right in the middle of the street
It could be uptown... down can feel that beat
There is a marching drum, there is a song unsung
It could be your dream or my dream, it’s not the only one
I’m a soldier marching in an army Got no gun to shoot But what I got is one guitar I got this one guitar

I see the rising smoke, I hear a heartbreak joke
Hey all my brothers and sisters, I think its time we spoke
I’ve only got six strings, but like a bell they ring
Its like a jet plane, insane, crashing in my brain
I’m a soldier marching in an army Got no gun to shoot But what I got is one guitar I got this one guitar... And it goes Na Na Na...

So if you get knocked down, you gotta take a stand
For all the outcasts, dead last, who need a helping hand
So get your tambourines, And turn your amps up loud
