Harry Truman
Written by - Robert Lamm
From - Chicago VIII

    America needs you
    Harry Truman
    Harry could you please come home
    Things are looking bad
    I know you would be mad
    To see what kind of men
    Prevail upon the land you love

    America's wondering
    How we got here
    Harry all we get is lies
    We're gettin' safer cars
    Rocket ships to mars
    From men who'd sell us out
    To get themselves a piece of power

    We'd love to hear you speak your mind
    In plain and simple ways
    Call a spade a spade
    Like you did back in the day
    You would play piano
    Each morning walk a mile
    Speak of what was going down
    With honesty and style

    America's calling
    Harry Truman
    Harry you know what to do
    The world is turnin' round and losin' lots of ground
    Oh Harry is there something we can do to save the land we love
    Oh whoa whoa whoa

    America's calling
    Harry Truman
    Harry you know what to do
    The world is turnin' round
    And losin' lots of ground
    So Harry is there something we can do to save the land we love
    Oh
    Harry is there something we can do to save the land we love
    Harry
    Harry is there something we can do to save the land we love
