For some reason, with all the politcial ads...many dealing with our troops all over the World, this song keeps playing in my head. Even though it's about the Viet Nam War, the words apply to every person we've ever lost in any war. It's just over 200 seconds long but says so much.
Since Typepad has "upgraded" I've not been able to link the actual Youtube video here, so just clink this link. And if anyone can tell me what's different about posting from Youtube, I'm all ears.
Jimmy Fortune is, by far, my favorite tenor of all time ! And, I may be wrong, but I think he wrote the words and music to this song.
