Vier Tote in Ohio, 04. Mai 1970

In memory of the four dead students from Ohio Kent State University

 

who were shot by US National Guard soldiers,

during their peaceful protests against the Vietnam war,

on 4th of May, 1970

 

Richard Nixon:
You see these bums [Penner], you know, blowing up the campuses…

 

 

 

Song & lyrics by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young:

 

 

Tin soldiers and Nixon coming,
We’re finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio.

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are gunning us down
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are gunning us down
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

Tin soldiers and Nixon coming,
We’re finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio.
