I'm gonna lay down my heavy load
Down by the riverside
I'm gonna lay down my heavy load
Down by the riverside
Gonna study war no more.

Chorus:
I ain't gonna study war no more
I ain't gonna study war no more
I ain't gonna study war no more.

I'm gonna lay down my sword and shield
Down by the riverside
I'm gonna lay down my sword and shield
Down by the riverside
Gonna study war no more.

Chorus:
I ain't gonna study war no more
I ain't gonna study war no more
I ain't gonna study war no more.

I'm gonna lay down my travelin' shoes
Down by the riverside
I'm gonna lay down my travelin' shoes
Down by the riverside
Gonna study war no more.

Chorus:
I ain't gonna study war no more
I ain't gonna study war no more
I ain't gonna study war no more.

I'm gonna lay down my gun and belt
Down by the riverside
I'm gonna lay down my gun and belt
Down by the riverside
Gonna study war no more.

Chorus:
I ain't gonna study war no more
I ain't gonna study war no more
I ain't gonna study war no more.

I'm gonna put on my long white robe
Down by the riverside
I'm gonna put on my long white robe
Down by the riverside
Gonna study war no more.

Chorus:
I ain't gonna study war no more
I ain't gonna study war no more
I ain't gonna study war no more.
