    "John Walker's Blues" Lyrics

    Steve Earle

    I'm just an American boy raised on MTV
    And I've seen all those kids in the soda pop ads
    But none of 'em looked like me
    So I started lookin' around for a light out of the dim
    And the first thing I heard that made sense was the word
    Of Mohammed, peace be upon him

    A shadu la ilaha illa Allah
    There is no God but God

    If my daddy could see me now – chains around my feet

    He don't understand that sometimes a man
    Has got to fight for what he believes
    And I believe God is great, all praise due to him

    And if I should die, I'll rise up to the sky
    Just like Jesus, peace be upon him


    We came to fight the Jihad and our hearts were pure and strong
    As death filled the air, we all offered up prayers
    And prepared for our martyrdom
    But Allah had some other plan, some secret not revealed
    Now they're draggin' me back with my head in a sack
    To the land of the infidel

    A shadu la ilaha illa Allah
    A shadu la ilaha illa Allah
