Where Old Glory Didn't Fly.
v
Captured treated like slaves
far from home on a distant shore
Interned for three hundred days
their beds, bamboo floors
v
Young men grew prematurely old
given food unfit for pigs
Tattered uniforms verses the cold
Rifle butts reminding you, dig

pre c
One day two soldiers didn't survive
a G I raised his hand, pointing to the sky
Guys looked up others gathered around
Look I've raised Old Glory in this stinking compound!

c
Where Old Glory didn't Fly
he raised it to the sky
Cheered as it unfurled
like it was the 4th of July
He pictured it waving in the breeze
majestically high above all the trees
Needing a reason not give up or die
only make believe, but he saw Old Glory fly
v
At the break of every dawn
Or when the sun went down
Though far from where they were born
was their very own city or town
c
Where Old Glory didn't Fly
he raised it to the sky
Cheered as it unfurled
like it was the 4th of July
He pictured it waving in the breeze
majestically high above all the trees
Needed a reason not give up and die
It was only make believe, but he saw Old Glory fly
tag
it was their very own city and town

Hi Travis.
I assume this is about p.o.w. and the flag is in his head.

Not sure about the tag as it's already been described as a "stinking compound".
Of course if he's now back home it would be different but if that's the case it could state that earlier imho. Maybe in verse 3.

Just a thought, but maybe I have it completely wrong.

It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

Could it have come from the Iranian hostage situation?

Hi Travis,
Well done. Many in Vietnam found many different ways to take their minds from where they were to a safer place. lots of them never came home, and many who did came home with their bodies and minds torn asunder.


Have a goodun,
