Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Somebody Else, Not Me (from Dave Van Ronk
Yet another verse by Van Ronk:

I did a little time in world war two
When them panzer tanks came rolling through
in the middle of a mine field field beneath barbed wire
They pinned us down with machine gun fire
There were bullets flying everywhere and shrapnel shrapening everywhere

My captain showed no fear
Said he, "I need a volunteer
Somebody has got to storm that hill
Somebody has got to go
Just to charge up that hill where those mines are laid
And to blow them to hell with a hnd grenade
The man who storms that hill," He said,
"Will live in history."

I'd rather live in Hackensack

It's got to be somebody else, not me.
