10'000 Miles From Home ©I've just been through two days of hell. Lord I'm tired it was a hell of a firefight. The jolly greens on the way to remove us from this place. Lord I've got six dead and two wounded. I'm cold and tired and in such pain.
Oh Lord I am down I can't feel my legs I can't get to the jolly green. I'm now realize I been hit. I'm 10,000 miles away from home covered in blood and great pain. As I don't realize this will be. The final dust off from battle for me. Lord make that six dead and now three wounded counting me.
Oh nurse I can't feel my legs. And yet there's no pain. Oh Lord I'm 10,000 miles from home oh please don't let this be. Oh nurse did my buddies make it to? No please say it isn't true. Oh lord I now have eight that are dead. Please take home their souls and keep them safe.
Oh nurse say it isn't so I'm homeward bound this way. Wait is that jolly green for me? Oh Lord it's my final NAM dust off I'm 10,000 miles from home. Oh Lord no my Momma doesn't know. I can't go home this away. Oh Lord I heard your voice telling me. At least it's not a box for me. Unlike my two cousins and my brother.
Oh momma please beware I'm not the boy that left your side. Momma please beware I'm in a chair. But momma please don't weep for me I'll be be fine just wait and see. Oh momma I'm alive for you to see. Oh Lord I am home and I thank you so.
Oh lord I just realized I'm 10,000 miles away from Vietnam.
