Here are the lyrics, from Steve Earle's web site:


JOHN WALKER'S BLUES
(Steve Earle)

I'm just an American boy raised on MTV
And I've seen all those kids in the soda-pop ads,
But none of 'em looked like me,
So I started lookin' around for a light out of the dim,
And the first thing I heard that made sense was the word
Of Mohammed, peace be upon him.

CHORUS: A shadu la ilaha illa Allah.
There is no God but God.

If my daddy could see me now ? chains around my feet!
He don't understand that sometimes a man
Has got to fight for what he believes,
And I believe God is great, all praise due to him,
And if I should die, I'll rise up to the sky
Just like Jesus, peace be upon him. CHORUS

We came to fight the Jihad and our hearts were pure and strong.
As death filled the air, we all offered up prayers
And prepared for our martyrdom,
But Allah had some other plan, some secret not revealed.
Now they're draggin' me back with my head in a sack
To the land of the infidel.

A shadu la ilaha illa Allah.
A shadu la ilaha illa Allah.
