John Wesley Harding - The Biggest Monument

John Wesley Harding
Well he shouts and wakes the whole street up
He says 'I've never believed in you anywayHe says 'Now what the hell do you want to lecture me for
To keep the approaching years at bay?And as the curtains opposite open slight
They see a front door slam
And God the Father to His chosen Son
Shouts 'Be saved or You'll be damnedAnd the years go past
Nothing changes 'cept the date
This time, it's just the same as the last
It's always just too late
He smashed the car again last night
And he can't bang out the dent
He was trying to pull down the biggest monument

Wallpaper medals decorate the soldiers
But the memories have peeled away
Well people fight, they come and go like politicians
So proud to have nothing to say
Well there were moving pictures on the news at ten
Why they rioted, it's a mystery
Well let's play tin soldiers at Goose Green
I never said we learned from history
And the years go past
Nothing changes 'cept the date
This time, it's just the same as the last
