Well an old man said to me In a voice filled with pain Where you going young man Said i'm going to fight a war Gonna fight for my country In some foreign land He said "the sun will never hurt you Never harmed anyone But you must realize" If you try to stare her down She will win in the end She will burn your eyes She will burn them
Seen a million places Seen a million faces die And i wonder who will walk with me When i get to heaven
He said "boy i was young once Yeah i was tough Sailing on uncle sam's boat Hey i could kill the enemy I could die on foreign streets But i could not vote But now you walk by me You won't talk to me Say this is my fate But every time you walk the streets boy Most of them you meet You see it's you they hate It's you...
Seen a million faces Seen a million places die And i wonder who will walk with me When i get to heaven I hope i get there
Seen a million places Seen a million faces die And i wonder who will walk with me When i get there
See this woman sitting next to me She's been there for a long, long time And when i fell, she picked me up When i cried, she wiped my tears I thank god she's mine And when i leave this world She won't have anything But her love for me ¡®cause the man took everything else Made me hate myself So just let her be boy Won't you let her be
