The Man who Died In Viet Nam

By Chuck RitenouR

 

1st verse:

She sits by the window with a book she's been reading for days

just staring at the pages while her mind drifts so far away.

And I know she's thinking of him and how different her life could have been.

No, she never got over the man who died in Viet Nam.

2nd verse:

I've seen her stand at that long black wall that bares his name

Motionless and silent, like a china doll left out in the rain

And I've  tried to give her comfort, my effort have all been in vain

When I tried to dull the memory of the man who died in Viet Nam.

Bridge

The years rolled by slowly and I became a man

And the first time she said, "you look just like him son",I began to understand

why she never remarried never took his ring from her left hand.

I was always there to remind her of the man who died in Viet Nam.

1/2 Bridge solo

1/2 Bridge:

My mother never remarried, she never took his ring from her left hand

She got enough love to last a lifetime from the man who died in Viet Nam

Greetings!

This is such a beautiful love song. And while there is this sadness, there is the celebration of one love being enough for a lifetime. Nicely done sir.
