FROM DEEP INSIDE MY HEART TO YOU 

©1997 music and words by John R. Black, ℗ 42nd Street Music Seattle

Looking out from where I am

From deep inside my heart to you
I dream of days from long ago

And wonder if you knew
That far off in that distant land

I still long to be with you
The memories of the Rue Catinat

Go Cong, Saigon and Pleiku
Now and forever burned in my memory

From deep inside my heart to you
Now and forever burned in my memory

From deep inside my heart to you
Looking out from where I am

From deep inside my heart to you
The perfume fragrance of your land

From Mekong to Dien Ben Phu
Lingers in my memory

When living was all we had to do
Francois Sully wrote your story

And many others told it too
Now and forever burned in my memory

From deep inside my heart to you
Now and forever burned in my memory

From deep inside my heart to you
Looking out from where I am

From deep inside my heart to you
To each his turn the French war song goes

Today is yours tomorrow mine
Sheehan's rides down highway 4

To tell about Vann's little war
Those years gone by now so confused

We fought the war we could never lose
Now and forever burned in my memory

From deep inside my heart to you
Now and forever burned in my memory

From deep inside my heart to you
Looking out from where I am

From deep inside my heart to you
I hear your children joined in song

Hoping that all war is gone
Singing of hope and love

Forever in Vietnam
So rest in peace soldiers of the war

God's children want war no more
Now and forever burned in my memory

From deep inside my heart to you


Song inspired by Once Upon A Distant War, William Prochnau, Vintage Books, 1996
