From the albums MY AMERICA, VOL.1 and MY AMERICA, VOL.1

"SOLDIERS OF VIETNAM-WELCOME HOME!" by Jimmy Flynn. This song obviously speaks of welcoming, but also of atonement, forgiveness, and then, hopefully, healing. Healing of our Vietnam veterans, and of our nation, so torn by that most divisive war in our nation's history, with the exception of the Civil War.

Lyrics

Soldiers Of Vietnam- Welcome Home!
by Jimmy Flynn

Verse 1

You came back from the war
In Vietnam.
Expecting thanks and more.
But thereupon,
This hero's banner
Was never flown:
"Soldiers of Vietnam- Welcome Home!"

Verse 2

You fought across the sea- the Vietcong.
And now PTSD
And Agent Orange.
We've learned our lesson-
Don't fight alone!
Soldiers of Vietnam- Welcome Home!

Chorus

Welcome Home. Welcome Home.
Soldiers of Vietnam- Welcome Home!

Verse 3

So many tears of pain,
Night after night.
Though many years can't change
That wrong to right.
We beg forgiveness!
Let us atone!
Soldiers of Vietnam- Welcome Home!

Chorus

Welcome home. Welcome home.
Soldiers of Vietnam, Welcome Home!

Bridge

Never again will vets be treated like you.
Never again to vets of red, white and blue!

Last Verse

From deep within our heart,
On bended knee,
Lord, let this be the start
We pray to thee-
Let this be healing.
Let this be known:
Soldiers of Vietnam- Welcome Home!

Chorus

Welcome home. Welcome home.
Soldiers of Vietnam- Welcome home!
Welcome home. Son, Welcome home.
Soldiers of Vietnam- Welcome Home!
Soldiers of Vietnam- Welcome Home!
Soldiers of Vietnam, Welcome, Welcome Home!
