If I had a rocket launcher (Cockburn) [3:51, 4516 kB]

Here comes the helicopter - second time today
Everybody scatters and hopes it goes away
How many kids they've murdered only God can say
If I had a rocket launcher... I'd make somebody pay

I don't believe in guarded borders and I don't believe in hate
I don't believe in generals or their stinking torture states
And when I talk with the survivors of things too sickening to relate
If I had a rocket launcher... I would retaliate

On the Rio La Cantun one hundred thousand wait
To fall down from starvation - or some less humane fate
Cry for Guatemala, with a corpse in every gate
If I had a rocket launcher... I would not hesitate

I want to raise every voice - at least I've got to try
Every time I think about it water rises to my eyes
Situation desperate - echoes of the victims' cry
If I had a rocket launcher... some sonofabitch would die.

Canadian minstrel Bruce Cockburn had a few small hits in the eighties, most notably 'Lovers in a dangerous time'.

'If I had a rocket launcher' was written while travelling (as many of Bruce's songs were), through Chiapas, Mexico, and later finished in Toronto. It's relatively well known in the Netherlands because its live version appears on the 2nd compilation of acoustic songs recorded for a radio show dedicated to the genre, called 'Twee Meter Sessies'.

And it's here because it moves me and I share the sentiment.
