  1. “I am just an aging drummer boy
    And in the wars I used to play
    And I’ve called the tune to many a torture session
    Now they say I am a war criminal
    And I’m fading away
    Father, please hear my confession

    I have legalized robbery
    And called it relief
    I have run with the money
    I have hid like a thief
    Rewritten histories with armies and my crooks
    Invented memories
    I did burn all the books
    And I can still hear his laughter
    And I can still hear his song
    The man’s too big
    The man’s too strong

    Well, I’ve tried to be meek
    I have tried to be mild
    But I spat like a woman
    And I sulked like a child
    Hid behind walls that have made me alone
    Striven for peace
    Which I never have known
    And I can still hear his laughter
    And I can still hear his song
    The man’s too big
    The man’s too strong

    Well, the sun rose on the courtyard
    And we all did hear him say
    “You always was a Judas,
    But I got you anyway.
    You may have got your silver
    But I swear upon my life
    Your sister gave me diamonds
    And I gave ’em to your wife.”
    Oh father, please help me
    For I have done wrong
    The man’s too big
    The man’s too strong”
