The 8'th of November

He said goodbye to his momma


As he left South Dakota


To fight for the Red, White, and Blue.


He was 19 in green with a new M-16


Just doin' what he had to do.

He was dropped in the jungle,


Where the choppers would rumble


With the smell of napalm in the air.


Then the sargeant said...


"Look up ahead".

Like a dark, evil cloud


1,200 came down


on him and 29 more.


They fought for their lives


But most of them died


In the 173rd Airborne.

On the 8th of November


The angels were cryin'


As they carried his brothers away.


With the fire rainin' down


And the Hell all around


There were few men left standin' that day.


Saw the eagle fly,


Through a clear, blue sky


1965, the 8th of November.

Now hes 58


And his ponytails grey


But the battle still plays in his head.


He limps when he walks,


But hes strong when he talks


About the shrapnel they left in his leg.

He puts on a grey suit


Over his airborne tattoo.


He ties it on one time a year


And remembers the fallen,


As he orders a tall one


And swallows it down with his tears.

On the 8th of November,


The angels were cryin'


As they carried his brothers away.


With the fire rainin' down


And the Hell all around


There were few men left standin' that day.

 


Saw the eagle fly

 

Through a clear, blue sky


1965, the 8th of November.

As they carried his brothers away.


With the fire rainin' down


And the Hell all around


There were few men left standin' that day.
