Makes a great gift idea for Vietnam Veterans

LYRICS

Fifty years ago, In a place called Vietnam

A nineteen year old boy had to learn to be a man

He left the life he knew, His friends and family

Served his country well as a United States marine

In 1966 so far away from home, In a place that felt like hell

Scared and all alone

No place to lay his head

Not a pillow or a bed

The thought of seeing his mom were the dreams of going home

CHORUS

Vietnam is a long way from Luisiana

Fighting a war so hard to understand

And though the war was hell and he has scars that tell

He lives his life the best way that he can

(Instrumental Break)

At night he still has dreams of the hell that. He has seen

The demons just won’t leave him alone

He goes back in time

To the shadow of his mind still fighting the war a long long way from home

CHORUS

Vietnam is a long way from Luisiana

Fighting a war so hard to understand

And though the war was hell and he has scars that tell

He lives his life the best way that he can
