2I was there in the winter of '64, camped in the ice at Nashville's door.

3Three-hundred miles our trail had led, we barely had time to bury our dead.

4When the yankees charged and the colors fell, Overton Hill was a living hell.
                 D18                    E19
5When we called retreat it was almost dark,
   E20 	               E21      Dmaj722
6I died with a grape-shot in my heart.

15In June of 1944, I waded in the blood of Omaha's shore.

17I almost made the first sea wall, when my friends turned and saw me fall.
        D58                         E59
18I still smell the smoke, I can taste the mud,
      E60 	            E61       Dmaj762
19as I lay there dying from a loss of blood.

28I'm in the fields of Vietnam, the mountains of Afghanistan,
    D83                                    E84
29And I'm still hopin', waitin', prayin' I did not die in vain.
