Hope Of The States — George Washington lyrics

I am burning in a smoke-choked house but
Tonight is empty of warm glows and whispered good nights
Riot, disorder, set the banks on fire
Some old war song used to play here
Once I heard it and the sound it made was sad but hopeful
Stand up, be counted, no one's buying me
