  • A quarter after two
    Sittin' in my car, watching
    Waiting on a train
    Ninety-seven flatcars
    Loaded down with troop trucks and tanks
    Rolling by

    I'm twenty-one, and I'm scared as hell
    I quit school, I'm healthy as a horse
    Because of all that I'll be the first one to die in a war

    The whole damn town was sleeping
    Dreaming the same dream
    The radio was playing
    Roger McWilliams singing
    "To each and every thing there's a time and a season

    I'm twenty-one, and I'm scared as hell
    I quit school, I'm healthy as a horse
    Because of all that I'll be the first one to die in a war

    Yes, I have the right to say
    We all die anyway
    But I'd just like to know
    Where does my time go
