I've Seen War Have You Lyrics

I've heard the children cry, have you?I've watched my
friends die, have you?
my country called, threw me in the fray
today she looks the other way
I know just what to say, do you?
I was 19 in '68, weren't you?
came home to live on a Philly steam grate, you too?
had half a leg and a VA bed
then they said 'this boy is sick in the head'
my brothers took me in instead, you too?
I held that little girl's hand, did you?
I told her I understand, do you?

scrapnel had cut her in 2
what's a 5 year old supposed to do?
I've seen the face of war, have you?
Now I've got a girl of my own, don't you?
would love to see her fully grown, you too?
now you leave them in Iraq and Afghanistan
like you left me in Viet Nam
I faced up, I never ran, did you?
I've heard the children cry, have you?
I've watched my friends die, have you?
my country called, threw me in the fray
today she looks the other way
I know just what to say, do you?
