Lyrics

The conversation takes an awkward turn
At the local diner table
And it used to be easy to avoid an angry word
Now I’m no longer able

I missed the protests of the “civil rights” years
Signing occasional petitions
But complacency ended when actions soon revealed
The truth of the lesson

CHORUS
I never did much marching
Wasn’t one for marching
Look at me marching now

My neighbor hasn’t stopped to chat in a while
Her smile grows tighter as she greets me
And my kid says his friend is scared to go to school
Afraid they’ll come for the family

Because the stakes are at an all-time high
And the situation’s dire
We can no longer wait to take our place at their side
Late arriving soldiers

CHORUS
We never did much marching
Not much marching
Look at us marching now
(Repeat)

Good soldiers come together heeding the call
Side by side sister and brother
And it’s left , right –right, left each and all
Putting one foot before the other

CHORUS
We never did much marching
Never did much marching
Look at us marching now

We never did much marching
Not much marching
Look at us marching now


Oooh look at us marching
Oooh look at us marching now
Repeat
