The Wall

Shaun Schipper is a songwriter who has just recorded an album, Vietnam

 

I walk along The Wall, tears fill my eyes

over 58,000 men and women, in Nam, they lost their lives

over 58,000 fellow Americans, they never made it home

over 58,000 buddies, their names carved on this stone

walking along The Wall, I drop down on my knees

I put my hand on that stone, on a name in front of me

I hold my hand on that stone, shaking and overwhelmed

if it wasn’t for this hero, I’d never had made it home

with paper and with pencil, I rub out my buddies name

he died a hero, he died and I was saved

I remember it like yesterday, can’t leave the past behind

my name should be upon The Wall, not this buddy of mine

I walk along The Wall, tears fill my eyes

over 58,000 men and women, in Nam, they lost their lives
