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

 

Forever

 

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
