   1. I've been on the road, so long
      Been tired and broke, so long
      I've been to the south where the winds they were warm
      Travelling the road of no return, so long

   2. I've seen what was war, so long
      The ruins and the scars, so long
      The mansions of mud, the wounds and the blood
      Seen the dying of all that was good, so long.

   3. Seen the world in the shadow, so long
      Is its mushrooming cloud, so long
      And the lies and the greed of the leaders of men
      Those cheats who would take us to war again, so long.

   4. Yet hope is in me, so long
      For it's love that I see, so long
      The courage and strenght of the young men's smile
      The faith that's in a little child, so long

   5. I've travelled this road, so long
      Have been tired and broke, so long
      I've been to the south where the winds they were warm
      Travelling the road of no return, so long
