Lyrics 7 - "An Old Song"

lg-bullet-gold.gif (1240 bytes) "Circles On The Wall"

Recitation:
Sometime ago I stood before the Vietnam Wall
And as I read the legend for the symbols
Tears began to fall
A Diamond, Cross or a Circle
Would be chiseled by each name
Diamonds KIA, Crosses MIA
A Diamond over a Cross
Means an MIA has given all
And a Circle around a Cross
Would mean an MIA has survived-But
There are no Circles On The Wall

Cho: There's a shiver up my spine
And a chill down in my bones
So many names, so many gave their all
I see Diamonds and Crosses
And Crosses changed to Diamonds, But
There are no Circles On The Wall

They left home so young
At the call of Uncle Sam
And most had never heard of Vietnam
And all across this country
The Bugle gave its call
And one more name was added
To The Wall

Panels of Black Granite
March out across these grounds
Whispers, Sobs and Sniffles
Are the only human sounds
Their presence is so real
My skin begins to crawl
I reach out and my fingers
Touch The Wall

This was written as a note to Bin Laden I thought the American People had a few things they would like to say, like; "You ain't seen nothing yet."

INTRO:
We are the, American People,
People of America, and
United We Stand

Evil raised it's ugly head
Thought we'd roll over and play dead
You gambled and you're sure to lose the bet
You meant to strike us in the heart
But we did not fall apart
Now meet some folks you never will forget

Cho:
The American People
People of America
Everyone is different
Yet everyone's the same
The common thread that binds us
Some don't understand
The reason is, We Love This Land
And United We Stand

We will honor those who died
See the debt is satisfied
You're much more of a nuisance than a threat
We have our Heros on the way
They'll make you Cowards pay
You'll meet some folks you never will forget
