🎶 This song is just absolutely incredible, it is just so well put together. I must applaud the Statler Brothers for making such a meaningful song that helps heal and bring awareness to the deep holes left in our community by this war.
Let’s spread this one all over the internet to show some RESPECT for our lost and living Vietnam Veterans
LYRICS I saw her from a distance, as she walked up to the wall In her hand she held some flowers, as her tears began to fall She took out pen and paper as to trace her memories She looked up to heaven, and the words she said were these
She said, “Lord my boy was special, and he meant so much to me And Oh, I’d love to see him just one more time you see All I have are the memories and the moments to recall So Lord could you tell him he’s more than a name on the wall”
She said, “He really missed the family, being home on Christmas day And he died for God and country in a place so far away I remember just a little boy, playing war since he was three And Lord this time I know, he’s not coming home to me”
She said, “Lord my boy was special, and he meant so much to me And Oh, I’d love to see him but I know it just can’t be So I thank you for my mem’ries and the moments to recall But Lord could you tell him he’s more than a name on the wall Lord could you tell him he’s more than a name on the wall”
