JACKSON BROWNE


Soldier Of Plenty Lyrics

God is great, God is good
He guards your neighborhood
Though it's generally understood
Not quite the way you would
You try to take the slack
Stay awake and watch his back
But something happens every now and then
And someone breaks into the promised land
Ah, boy
This world is not your toy
This world is long on hunger
This world is short on joy
A E I O
You speak as if you know
What's good for everyone
What's good in what you've done?
What's good about a world in which
War rages at a fever pitch
And people die for the little things
A little corn, a little beans
Ah, boy
This world is not your toy
This world is long on hunger
This world is short on joy
How much longer
You gonna keep the world hungry, boy?
You measure peace with guns
Progress in mega-tons
Who's left when the war is won?
Soldier of misfortune
Soldier of an angry call
Soldier on foreign soil
I'm not here to fight your war
I know what you're fighting for
Ah, boy
This world is not your toy
This world is long on hunger
This world is short on joy
How much longer
You gonna keep the world hungry, boy?
