THE FOURTH DAY OF MAY
(Thom Bishop

On the fourth day of May, I want out a-walking.
'Twas a bright sunny day, 'til I heard someone talking.
I listened awhile to the things they were saying:
"Glory-o, glory-o, there were four killed at Kent!"

With fists clenched so tightly, I walked through the town there.
I went to the commons to see what was down there.
There were banners a-flying, loudspeakers all 'round there.
Glory-o, glory-o, there were four killed at Kent.

Now it's nearly_______ years since the guns was a-blazing,
And it seems we've gone numb in the process of aging,
For not much has come from that war we were waging,
Glory-o, glory-o, there were four killed at Kent.

Words, Thom Bishop; tune, "The Bold Fenian Men."
copyright Thom Bishop
Refers to killing of students at Kent State Univ in Ohio in 1969 in an antiwar p
rotest.
