I ask the Lord above to bless
my airborne buddies in the mess
and for my cobber Tony Pahl
who answered to the Aussie Call

He flew in helos through the air
he hugged a dying soldier there
and since that time, he’s writing rhyme
to help erase the blood and slime

He helps old soldiers just like me
to rinse our souls and try to see
the light of love that sets us free
God bless this man, my good friend T.
