Like many other country music stars, Willie Nelson took to social media to express his thoughts on the recent terrorist attacks in Paris, France.

Nelson's message was just a simple question, but it still contained so much power.

What happened to peace on Earth?

Posted by Willie Nelson on Tuesday, November 17, 2015

 

Nelson's reaction is also similar to the title of one of his songs, which he shared along with his message.

During the 2004 presidential primaries, Nelson wrote the song "Whatever Happened to Peace on Earth" in response to the war in Iraq.

According to Alternet, Nelson felt compelled to write the song after he saw pictures of children and their mothers that were affected by the war. 

Now, over ten years later, Nelson's song takes on a new meaning in light of the attacks in Paris.

Listen to Nelson's heartbreaking song, "Whatever Happened to Peace on Earth" in the recording below.

Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to the people of Paris.

LYRICS BELOW

There's so many things going on in the world
Babies dying
Mothers crying
How much oil is one human life worth
And what ever happened to peace on earth

We believe everything that they tell us
They're gonna' kill us
So we gotta' kill them first
But I remember a commandment
Thou shall not kill
How much is that soldier's life worth
And whatever happened to peace on earth

And the bewildered herd is still believing
Everything we've been told from our birth
Hell they won't lie to me
Not on my own damn TV
But how much is a liar's word worth
And whatever happened to peace on earth

So I guess it's just
Do unto others before they do it to you
Let's just kill em' all and let God sort em' out
Is this what God wants us to do

And the bewildered herd is still believing
Everything we've been told from our birth
Hell they won't lie to me
Not on my own damn TV
But how much is a liar's word worth
And whatever happened to peace on earth

Now you probably won't hear this on your radio
Probably not on your local TV
But if there's a time, and if you're ever so inclined
You can always hear it from me
How much is one picker's word worth
And whatever happened to peace on earth

But don't confuse caring for weakness
You can't put that label on me
The truth is my weapon of mass protection
And I believe truth sets you free


And the bewildered herd is still believing
Everything we've been told from our birth
Hell they won't lie to me
Not on my own damn TV
But how much is a liar's word worth
And whatever happened to peace on earth
