A LONG TIME COMING

If you are going to Branson…
don’t wear any flowers in your hair

but take some handkerchiefs along
for there will be plenty of tears there

My heroes will be gathered and proud as never before
and welcomed home for their service in the Vietnam War

… the ones remaining here and there in the flesh
and the ones whose names are in lines on the Wall

They are my heroes and always have been
Welcome them Home… Once and for all…

Branson, Missouri: Welcome Home
