(v1)

When you were searching for my name today I saw you standing there

Man, you look different  with that silver in your hair

Me, I haven't aged a bit, still all of twenty one

That's the thing about us spirits, we're forever young

At the wall Here at the wall

 

(v2)

We were proud to serve our country when called by Uncle Sam

Then more than a little anxious when they shipped us off to Nam

Remember all the heat and bugs, days marching through the mud

Constant gunfire, smell of death, sight of all that blood

Some gave all The names carved in this wall

 

Chorus

But it's a wall of love, A wall that heals

A wall that touches And helps you feel

The faces of more than fifty-thousand names

Feel the wall.....Be forever changed

 

(v3)

When we finally got the orders saying we could go back home

They were looking for my body  so you made the trip alone

Came back to a country that couldn't comprehend

How so many boys that left  returned as messed up men

Who served with all The names here on the wall

 

 

 

 Chorus

But it's a wall of love, A wall that heals

A wall that touches And helps you feel

The faces of more than fifty-thousand names

Feel the wall.....Be forever changed

 

(v3)

So, as you stand there weeping with your fingers on my name

Share with those cute grandkids the reason for this place

To restore some stolen gratitude and dignity

This granite wall of honor that holds my memory

 Chorus

But it's a wall of love, A wall that heals

A wall that touches And helps you feel

The faces of more than fifty-thousand names

Feel the wall.....Be forever changed

Feel the wall....Be forever changed

Mitch this song is just so super!!! The lyrics are top notch and just bring it all right in out faces!!! First time I've caught this one on the ramp and I'm so glad you reposted it for this time of year!!!! I am a Viet Nam vet who did three tours there. I was on a destroyer that did get shot at but they couldn't shoot that good, thank God!!! Thanks for a wonderful song!!! RonE.

What a wonderful song. Thank you so much for sharing it. I never had to serve, but I have great respect for those that did. I hope that this song brings a little peace to those that live with the memories. It is very well written and performed.
Take care
