Story behind the song
The men and women that fought in the Vietnam war didnt have the support that we as a country should have given them. A lot ended up on the streets and never found their way back into society. I salute all of them and my thoughts and prayers are with you even after all these years. You will never be forgotten.
Lyrics
Forgotten Hero There’s a full moon out Beneath the stars Cold plated steel Lies pounded to the ground He rides the rails From dusk til dawn Not wanting to be found He’s a traveling man Got an ole pair of boots Camouflage britches from Vietnam roots Did two tours and had to shoot A lot of bad men down Chorus: He fought for his country With his blood and a gun All those years ago and it's sad to see what he's become Just another hobo he's a man on the run Left that country wondering what he'd done To come back stateside and be shunned Ole Uncle Sam said he was fine Gave him disability at least for a time Then one day they dropped him a dime And took it all away Chorus: He fought for his country With his blood and a gun All those years ago and it's sad to see what he's become Just another hobo he's a man on the run Left that country wondering what he'd done To come back and be shunned Bridge: Well he rides these rails from town to town Searching for the ghosts of the fallen down He’ll keep looking til their found Or they lay him in the ground Chorus: He fought for his country With his blood and a gun All those years ago and it's sad to see what he's become Just another hobo he's a man on the run Left that country wondering what we've done Came back and he was shunned Now its just to late Hes a forgotten man on the run Left that country wondering what he'd done To come back stateside and be shunned Written by Mike McCorison 2011
