19 MILES to BAGHDAD

Standard

19 MILES to BAGHDAD

19 miles to Baghdad,

I don’t feel so all alone…

Sometimes I get to talk to you,

Via the video-phone.

19 miles to Baghdad, and

I’m writing you this postcard,

Just to take away the fear…

Actually, it’s not so hard.

19 Miles to Baghdad, and

One thing I’ll never hear,

Is G.I.s writing home to say,

Wish you were here.

19 Miles to Baghdad, and

This I’m proud to say…

We’re over here protecting you all,

in the whole U. S. A.

As blossoms bouquet

A smell of dirty, red wind

Immense bombs stagger

Silent shadow watches you

BLOOD DOES TELL

Blood stained truth does tell

Deep in a midnight’s embrace

Play your soul’s sad song
