Goin' by the Book Lyrics

(Chester Lester)
© '86 Vidor Publications, BMI / Chester Lester Music, BMI

You can see it in the movies and the paper and the TV news
Somebody's army is always on the move
There's gonna be a battle the lines have been drawn
They've got guns and tanks and planes
The wells are gone dry and the water is bad and the rain is acid rain
There's war after war and rumors of war from the East
There's a rumblin' in the ground and they're talkin' about the beast
Good mothers cry cause the rivers run high with the bloood of too many sons
Some people say peace is on the way but the worse is still to come
Cause the prophets wrote about it and Jesus spoke about it and John gotta take a look
And he told us what he saw and it's easy to see
It's goin' by the book it's goin' by the book
[ guitar ]
There's armies in the cities and the missiles stand ready for flight
A pale horse rides like the wind across the night
And that rumblin' in the desert like thunder gettin' closer
And the trumpet's gettin' ready to blow
There's gonna be a shout that will wake the dead we better be ready to go
Cause the prophets wrote about it...
It's goin' by the book goin' by the book
