"Ballad of the Quiet Fighter" as written by and John Stewart....
[Chorus:]

Oh, I stood watchin', oh, I stood waitin'
And as the rivers of freedom run through this land
I'll be there for to lend you my hand

Well, I listened to the shouting of those with their lies
Who tore at the heart of this country of mine
But here's where a quiet man with truth in his hand
Can make a stand and be heard in this land
So,

[Chorus: ]

So I stood by the watch road
Till the October of their days
With the winds to my left and then far from the right
Blowing my way
But now is the hour
The time I can see when we'll win with the truth
That has made us free
So,

[Chorus: ]
