Concierto especial en París

En el concierto de esta noche en París Bruce ha contado, como viene siendo habitual, con la presencia de Elliott Murphy en los bises, para cantar «Buffalo Gals». Otro invitado en la misma canción ha sido el neoyorquino Garland Jeffreys. El repertorio del concierto ha sido parecido al de los últimos conciertos pero ha contado con un estreno especial: la canción «Bring Them Home (If You Love Your Uncle Sam)», canción antibelicista escrita por Pete Seeger en 1966.

Set list completo en la sección Conciertos.

Bring Them Home (If You Love Your Uncle Sam)

If you love your Uncle Sam,
Bring them home, bring them home.
Support our boys in Vietnam,
Bring them home, bring them home.

It’ll make our generals sad, I know,
Bring them home, bring them home.
They want to tangle with the foe,
Bring them home, bring them home.

They want to test their weaponry,
Bring them home, bring them home.
But here is their big fallacy,
Bring them home, bring them home.

I may be right, I may be wrong,
Bring them home, bring them home.
But I got a right to sing this song,
Bring them home, bring them home.

There’s one thing I must confess,
Bring them home, bring them home.
I’m not really a pacifist,
Bring them home, bring them home.

If an army invaded this land of mine,
Bring them home, bring them home.
You’d find me out on the firing line,
Bring them home, bring them home.

Even if they brought their planes to bomb,
Bring them home, bring them home.
Even if they brought helicopters and napalm,
Bring them home, bring them home.

Show those generals their fallacy:
Bring them home, bring them home.
They don’t have the right weaponry,
Bring them home, bring them home.

For defense you need common sense,
Bring them home, bring them home.
They don’t have the right armaments,
Bring them home, bring them home.

The world needs teachers, books and schools,
Bring them home, bring them home.
And learning a few universal rules,
Bring them home, bring them home.

So if you love your Uncle Sam,
Bring them home, bring them home.
Support our boys in Vietnam,
Bring them home, bring them home.
