 Marvin Gaye; 'Abraham, Martin, And John'


Has any body here,
Seen my old friend Abraham,
Can you tell me, where he's gone.
He freed a lot of people,
But it seems the Good die young
I just looked around,
And he was gone.
Has anybody here,
Seen my old friend John, 
Can you tell me where he's gone.
He freed a lot of people,
But it seems the good die young
I just looked around 
And he was gone.
Has any body here seen my old friend Martin,
Can you tell me, where he's gone
He freed a lot of people,
But it seems the good die young
I just looked around 
And he was gone.

Has any body here
Seen my old friend bobby.
Can you tell me
Where he's gone.
You see he freed a lot of people, 
But the good they die young yeah
I just looked around
And he was gone.
Oh I just looked around
And he was gone!

NOT Marvin Gaye--'America, Eagle, and Compassion'

******

Has anybody here,
seen where America used to stand?
Can you tell me where she's gone?
She used to embrace and welcome,
now she builds up walls, such a con
I turned away just briefly,
And she was gone.--and she was gone
Has anybody here,
seen the once-proud bald eagle?
Now his policies should be illegal
He used to embrace and welcome,
now the welcome sign is gone
I looked away for just a sec,
and he was gone.
Has anybody here, seen our freedom flag,
can you tell me where its gone?
used to wave in glory's breeze,
replaced by one so wrong
turned away for just one sec,
and now it's gone

Has anybody here,
seen compassion's creed,
can you tell me

why we're in need?

Where has it gone,
you see, it touched a lot of us,
yea, now replaced by oh so wrong
I look around,
don't see anyone,
what we used to have is gone
now it all feels so wrong
