Song For The Dead (LP版) - Randy Newman

Deep in the field


A lone soldier stands


With mud on his boot


And blood on his hands


They left him behind


To bury the dead


And to say a few words on behalf of the leadership


Pardon me boys


If I slip off my pack


And sit for awhile with you


I'd like to explain


Why you fine young men had to be blown apart


To defend this mud hole


Now our country boys


Though it's quite far away


Found itself jeopardized


Endangered boys


By these very gooks


Who lie here beside you

Forever near




We'd like to express


Our deep admiration


For your courage under fire


And your willingness to die


For your country boys


We won't forget


We won't forget
