|Alternative Title||First line of text: Peace has always been out pray'r;First line of chorus: It's up to you! What will you do?|
VERSE 01: Peace has always been our pray’r/Now there’s trouble in the air,/War is talked of ev’rywhere,/Still in God we trust;/We’re not looking for any kind of war,/But if fight we must.
CHORUS: It’s up to you!/What will you do?/England or France may have your sympathy, or Germany,/But you’ll agree/That, now is the time,/To fall in line,/You swore that you would so be true to your vow,/Let’s all be Americans now.
VERSE 02: Lincoln, Grant and Washington,/They were peaceful men, each one,/Still they took the sword and gun,/When real trouble came;/And I feel somehow, they are wond’ring now,/If we’ll do the same.
