Fallen Comrade Blues

This song is by Hoopiejohn.

Seems like thirty years ago
When we were young and strong
They sent us off to a foreign land
A place we called The Nam
Some died in the fighting
Some died running away
Most die more slowly
Wounded by memories every day
Could have been from the country
Or a city kid too
Most likely a poor boy
Just like me and you
Some died in the fighting
Some died running away
Most die more slowly
Wounded by memories every day
Hope you forgive us
Anything we done
Remember in that evil war
We were so very young
It don't mean nothing
We understood
Dropped off and forgotten
To survive the best we could
Some died in the fighting
Some died running away
Most die more slowly
Wounded by memories every day
Sometimes in the midnight
Ghosts call out to me:
And things I wish I could forget
Just won't leave me be
Bullet wounds and shrapnel
The young men died
Older now its drinking
Overdose and suicide
Some died in the fighting
Some died running away
Most die more slowly
Wounded by memories every day
