Armistice Day

On Armistice Day
The Philharmonic will play
But the songs that we sing
Will be sad
Shufflin’ brown tunes
Hanging around

No long-drawn, blown out excuses
Were made
When I needed a friend, she was there
Just like an easy chair

Armistice Day
Armistice Day
That’s all I really wanted to say

Oh, I’m weary from waiting
In Washington, D.C.
I’m coming to see my congressman
But he’s avoiding me
Weary from waiting down in Washington, D.C.

Oh, Congresswoman
Won’t you tell that congressman
I’ve waited such a long time
I’ve about waited all I can
Oh, Congresswoman
Won’t you tell that congressman

Comentarios: Escrita en 1968, Paul en su momento no la consideró adecuada para S&G. Las letras hacen referencia al cansancio del movimiento pacifista, comentando el propio Simon al respecto: "..estoy cansado de esta lucha y de su abuso...no es una canción protesta..."
