The Boy I Left Behind - lyrics

playlist Playlist
Sixty four
Every pretty girl was knockin' at your door
Do you remember?
Do you remember?
My baby on the open road
Elvis on the radio
Do you remember?
Do you remember?
I remember the day my papers came
Son, you're goin' to Vietnam
Time to chase the boy away
Time to be a man
For you
The boy I left behind
For you
A thousand tears these eyes have cried
Sometimes it's like a memory
Sometimes it's just a dream
I'm staring' in the mirror
I don't recognize who I see
For you
The boy I left behind
For you
For you
Drive-in movie picture shows
Skinny dipping' rock n' roll
Do you remember?
Do you remember?
Parked down at Inspiration Point
We shared our dreams
And shared a joint
Do you remember?
Do you remember?
I dream of me and Mary
Makin' sweet love on the sand
Then a voice comes on the radio
Said, Good mornin' Vietnam
For you
The boy I left behind
For you
A thousand tears these eyes have cried
Ashamed to wear this uniform
They spat in our face
What's the use in comin' home
With no comin' home parade
For you
The boy we left behind
We're finally comin' home
Soldiers done our time
Nobody there to shake our hand
No autographs to sign
For you
The boys we left behind
For you
A thousand tears these eyes have cried
Age shall never weary them
Nor the years condemn
At sunset and at daybreak
We will remember them
For you
The boys we left behind
For you
A thousand tears these eyes have cried
For you
The boys we left behind
