" The Last Goodbye " - ('Bye John)


"Hello" soldier ... "No son, you don't know my name."
I just wanted to say ... "THANK YOU"... and,
"Welcome Home"... from where you've been.

I just met your lovely wife, John
And, son ... You have a real nice ... family.
All your friends been telling stories, John
But, I'm sure ... you've been listening.

Men like you are special, John
A cut above ... the rest.
A HERO ... in ALL our eyes,
You go on home now, son ... get some rest.


( Spoken Prayer )


Not another soldier, Lord ... Please God,
Not another one.
Not another mother or father, sister or brother, husband or wife,
Please, God ... not another ... mother's son.

Let this be ... " The Last Goodbye "
Please, Lord
Not another one.


( Chorus )


Not another soldier, Lord
Not another one.
Let this be ... " The Last Goodbye "
Not another mother's son.

Please, God
Not another one ...
