Veterans Day Lyrics

(in memory of John Davis)
In memory of John Davis. Our hearts are still with you
It been 20 years now since I last saw you.
You were getting on bus with a sadness in your eye.
The last thing I heard you say, you told your momma "please don't cry"
When basic was over you got orders to go to Namm
Some outpost near the border, fighting Viet Congs
You were just a boy 5 months before but now your groomed for hell
Well son we really missed you, did you ever get our mail
One day a man in a uniform drove up and I thought it was you
Then I realized it wasn't and the they probably had bad news.
Well some captain said that you were not alone when your post was overrun
He said you went down fighting, shots were fired from your gun.
I don't know anymore what has gotten into this world
Where people play the fools while some politician rules
They can launch an attack, But nothing they do is gonna bring you back
Cause now your dead and gone and your name is on this stone
In memory of John Davis I hope your doing fine
I know you are in heaven, I knew it all the time
With this special thought on Veterans Day I read your name upon this stone
With 50' thousand more men who never made it home]
Oh its such a travesty. Can we see the light
Can we work out our problems or do we always have to fight
or do millions of our flesh and blood have to pay the price
for a government inability to follow good advice. ---repeat chorus
In memory of John Davis. Its time to say good-bye
I know you never wanted to see your old man cry
But as time goes on I miss you more and more with each passing day
God bless my son my soldier on this Veterans Day.
