VIETNAM I'M DREAMIN' DREAMIN' ON

©1989 music and words by John R. Black, ℗ 42nd Street Music Seattle


At night I lay here dreamin'

Wondering where I should be
Telling myself I'm floating

On some lonely silent sea
And the passage is long and weary

And the nights are cold and dark
Will I ever reach the shoreline

Before Vietnam breaks my heart
Vietnam I'm dreamin' dreamin' on

Vietnam I'm dreamin' dreamin' on
Vietnam why are you my song

Vietnam how am I gonna get you gone
At night I lay here dreamin'

That tomorrow's finally here
And I'm stone cold sober

No more dark nights to fear
And the passage is long and cheery

I'm feelin' more than fine
I shook the pot and the whiskey

And took Vietnam from my mind
Vietnam I'm dreamin' dreamin' on

Vietnam I'm dreamin' dreamin' on
Vietnam why are you my song

Vietnam how am I gonna get you gone
And now I'm no longer dreamin'

I am where I should be
Sailing alone with my darlin'

On a drug-free silk-smooth sea
We're peaceful and together

No passage do we fear
We can sail or walk these waters

'Cause Vietnam your not here
Vietnam I'm dreamin' dreamin' on

Vietnam I'm dreamin' dreamin' on
Vietnam why are you my song

Vietnam how am I gonna get you gone
Vietnam I'm dreamin' dreamin' on

Vietnam I'm dreamin' dreamin' on
Vietnam why are you my song

Vietnam I know I'm gonna get you gone
Vietnam I know I'm gonna get you gone

Vietnam I know I'm gonna get you gone
