Bring The Boys Home Lyrics


Fathers are pleading, lovers are all alone
Mothers are praying--send our sons back home
You marched them away--yes, you did--on ships and planes
To the senseless war, facing death in vain

Bring The Boys Home (bring 'em back alive)
Bring the boys home (bring 'em back alive)
Bring the boys home (bring 'em back alive)
Bring the boys home (bring 'em back alive)
Turn the ships around, lay your weapons down

Can't you see 'em march across the sky, all the soldiers that have died
Tryin' to get home can't you see them tryin' to get home?
Tryin' to get home they're tryin' to get home
Seesaw fire on the battlefield
Enough men have already been wounded or killed

Bring the boys home (bring 'em back alive)
Bring the boys home (bring 'em back alive)
Bring the boys home (bring 'em back alive)
Bring the boys home (bring 'em back alive)
Turn the ships around, lay your weapons down
(Mothers, fathers and lovers, can't you see them)

Oh, oh
Tryin' to get home can't you see them tryin' to get home?
Oh, oh
Tryin' to get home they're tryin' to get home

Bring the boys home (bring 'em back alive)
Bring the boys home (bring 'em back alive)
Bring the boys home (bring 'em back alive)
Bring the boys home (bring 'em back alive)
What they doing over there, now (bring 'em back alive)
When we need them over here, now (bring 'em back alive)
What they doing over there, now (bring 'em back alive)
When we need them over here, now (bring 'em back alive)

Bring The Boys Home
  • This was written during the war in Vietnam. It is protesting to stop the war and return home the young men who were sent to fight.
  • Although this received a lot of airplay in the States, it was banned by the US Command from the American Forces Network for fear that it would "give aid and comfort to the enemy."
  • This was not included in the first 50,000 copies of Contact. It was added onto the album when it became a hit.
  • This was Freda Payne's second gold record. Her first was "Band Of Gold." (thanks, Jerro - New Alexandria, PA, for all above)
