The Lyrics

Tour of 'Nam
Got my first real M16
got it at the P.E.A.
Shot it till my fingers bled
thats the summer of '69

Me and my friends from school
we went to 'Nam and we fought real hard
Jon is missing and Billy got shot
we should have known we'd never get home.

Yeah when I think back now
that summer was a nightmare
and if I had a chance
yeah, I'd forget I ever went there
those were the worse days of my life

There is on sense in complaining
when you got a job to do
Spent my nights with my head down
thats when I'd think of her

Standing on her mothers porch
she told me she would wait forever
and when she held my hand
I knew it was good-bye forever
those were the saddest days of my life
that was the summer of '69

Man we were killing gooks
we were young and fearless
we needed to stay down
our luck couldn't hold out forever
and now I'm back States side
I think of everyone thats dead and gone
some times I still shoot that old M16
and think of what went wrong

Standing on her mothers porch
she told me she would wait forever
And when she held my hand
I knew it was good-bye forever
those were the worse days of my life
that was the summer of '69

Alas, the truth about Nam. I think we had learned many painful lessons in that era. You did a great job with your song.
