Phil Ochs – It's Been A Long, Long Story lyrics

It's been a long, long, long, long story
'bout the fight to make men free,
It's been a long, long, long, long story
About as long as a story ought to be

So hold your hats boys, hold the fort
I'm here to make a long story short
So it's time to sail in to the port
Time to make a long story short.

It's been...........
About the fight to make the union grow
It's been............
Story that's been told too slow.

It's been............
About the fight to ban the bomb
It's been..............
Should have been a long time gone.

It's been..........
About the fight to keep the hungry lands
It's been............
About as long as a hungry world can stand.
