Veterans Day Recorded by Johnny Cash Written by Tom Russell
G D7 Well I used to hang out down at the VFW hall G And stare at the photographs up on the wall D7 Of the neighborhood boys that died in the wars we've been through G And the hand lettered sign that said remember Jimmy McGrew
D7 Well Jimmy went to Nam back in 1965 G But there's a lot of men here that think Jimmy McGrew's still alive D7 Though they carved his name on a stone in Washington DC G His brother said that stone don't prove a thing to me
C G It's veteran's day and the skies are gray D7 Leave the uniforms home cause there ain't gonna be a parade G C But we'll fill up a glass for the ones that didn't make it through G D7 G And leave a light in the window tonight for Jimmy McGrew
D7 There's a hot rain falling on the back streets of Saigon G There's an old soldier stumbling down the alley with his mama-san D7 Lord his eyes are cloudy and his arms are black and blue G He's just hanging by a thread and he looks like Jimmy McGrew
And keep it burning bright there may still be
A lot of Jimmy McGrews over there C But we'll fill up a glass for the ones that didn't make it through G D7 G And leave a light in the window tonight for Jimmy McGrew
