"Ohio" as written by Patricia J. Griffin and Robert Plant....
The soldiers and Nixon coming,
We're finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio

Gotta get downto it
Soldiers are cutting us down
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are cutting us down
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

Tin soldiers and Nixon coming
We're finally on our won.
This summer I haear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio.

    General CommentI was reading Neil's bio, and when Neil was over at David Crosby's house, they heard the news about Kent State. Neil got pissed and walked to the back porch and picked up a guitar and literally wrote the song on the spot. When David heard the song he just started to cry.
