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
 

(Chorus:)

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
 

(Chorus)


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 you're not here

 

(Chorus x2)

Vietnam I know I'm gonna get you gone

Vietnam I know I'm gonna get you gone
