      Big & Rich - 8th of November Música y Letra

      Said goodbye to his momma as he left South Dakota
      To fight for the red, white and blue
      He was 19 and green with a new M-16
      Just doing what he had to do
      He was dropped in the jungle where the choppers would rumble
      With the smell of napalm in the air
      And the sergeant said...look up ahead
      Like a dark evil cloud, 1,200 came down on him and 29 more
      They fought for their lives but most of them died in the 173rd Airborne
      
      [Chorus:]
      On the 8th of November the angels were crying
      As they carried his brothers away
      With the fire raining down and the hell all around
      There were few men left standing that day
      Saw the eagle fly through a clear blue sky
      1965, the 8th of November
      
      Now he's 58 and his pony tail's gray
      But the battle still plays in his head
      He limps when he walks but he's strong when he talks
      About the Shrapnel they left in his leg
      He puts on a gray suit over his Airborne tattoo
      And he ties it on one time a year
      And remembers the fallen as he orders a tall one
      And swallows it down with his tears
      
      [Chorus]
      
      Saw the eagle fly through a clear blue sky
      1965...
      On the 8th of November the angels were crying
      As they carried his brother away
      With the fire raining down and the hell all around
      There were few men left standing that day
      
      [Chorus]
      
      Said goodbye to his momma as he left South Dakota
      TO fight for the red, white and blue
      He was nineteen and green with a new M-16
      Just doing what he had to do
