The Lyrics

This was a n assignment. We had to write a song about Vietnam last year and this was what resulted. Done by me and a friend. I also wrote "Don't Take My Dad"
Shootin' in the dark
Middle of the fight
Takin' your blade
And holdin' it tight
Emotional steel
Cuttin' my skin
And I'm bleedin' the blood
That I've been bleedin' all over again
Oh, it's a horrible thing
Don't think I can keep it all in
I just gotta let you know
What it is that won't let me go


It's Vietnam
It just done somethin' to me
It sent some shots right through me
I've had enough enough
And if you wonder
About the spell i'm under
Oh, it's Vietnam

Worse than I was
Less than I am
And all of this happened
By cuttin' your hand
And who I am now
Isn't who I wanted to be
And now that we're the winner
I'm stronger than ever
I'm happy and free
Oh, it's a horrible thing
Don't think I can keep it all in
And if you asked me why I've changed
All I gotta do is say it's awful name


Oh, it's a horrible thing
Don't think i can keep it all in
I just gotta let you know
What it is that won't let me go


It's Vietnam
It's Vietnam

I just wanted to say, even if unintended, this is a great patriotic song. I like it a lot and think it's great that you guys took the time to write it. Very nice
