Fiddle And The Drum

This song is by A Perfect Circle and appears on the album eMOTIVe (2004).

This song is a cover of "The Fiddle And The Drum" by Joni Mitchell.
And so once again
My dear Johnny, my dear friend
And so once again
You are fighting us all

And when I ask you why
You raise your sticks and cry and I fall
Oh my friend, how did you come
To trade the fiddle for the drum

You say I have turned
Like the enemies you've earned
But I can remember
All the good things you are

And so I ask you, please
Can I help you find the peace and the star
Oh my friend, what time is this
To trade the handshake for the fist

And so once again
Oh America, my friend
And so once again
You are fighting us all

And when we ask you why
You raise your sticks and cry and we fall
Oh my friend, how did you come
To trade the fiddle for the drum

You say we have turned
Like the enemies you earned
But we can remember
All the good things you are

And so we ask you, please
Can we help you find the peace and the star
Oh my friend, we have all come
To fear the beating of your drum
