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

Repeat #3


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
