A DAMNED DISGRACE
SO MANY FRIENDS HAVE NOW LONG GONE
AND THEY STILL CONTINUE TO MOVE ON
AND NOT BECAUSE THEY’VE LOST THE FIGHT
BUT MORE BECAUSE OF THE GOVERNMENTS PLIGHT
IT’S ALL AS PLAIN AS THE NOSE ON YOUR FACE
WHAT THEY AND DOW DID WAS A DAMNED DISGRACE

WE JOINED THE ARMY TO SERVE THE NATION
AND HELP PROTECT IT FROM DEVASTATION
SO OFF TO VIETNAM WE WENT
IT MATTERED NOT WHERE WE WERE SENT
TO FIGHT COMMUNISM IN ANY PLACE
YET WHAT THEY AND DOW DID IS STILL A DISGRACE

NEARLY FORTY YEARS ON AND FINALLY A LIGHT
STILL QUITE DIM BUT IT MAY TURN BRIGHT
WITH FAILING HEALTH AND NO SECURITY
AT LAST THERE MAY BE SOME GRATUITY
SO NOW THE GOVERNMENT MUST ACCEPT IT’S PLACE
AND RID THE NATION OF THE DOW DISGRACE
