"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 CommentInteresting... I always interpreted the "we're finally on our own" line as meaning that given this incident, citizens can no longer rely on the government to keep them safe...so now we're on our own.
