    Viet Nam 1967

    Tell me, my friend, of the battles we have won.
    Tell me of the freedom that we saved.
    Whisper to me gently of the good that we have done,
    And I’ll lay here listening from my grave.

    Tell me of the men who fought by my side.
    Tell me of their glory and their gain,
    But please don’t ever tell me of the damage we have done
    ‘Less the truth decree that it was all in vain.

    So, sing to me gently and whisper to me mild.
    Fight on my friend and never shed a tear.
    Yet remember, when you’re dying with a bullet in your side
    Just why it was they sent us over here.
