A purple heart

Another heart is broken, another home so sad
Another message has been sent to his Mom and Dad
Your son was killed in action was the way the message read
Your son will not be coming home, they told me he was dead

    They sent him to Viet Nam, his heart was young and gay
    It's hard for me to realize they'll bring him home this way
    His troubles are all over, his work on earth is done
    A mother has a purple heart in memory of her son

Just a few short months ago he was here with me
And then they called his number to go across the sea
I still can hear his smiling voice and see his curly head
Oh somehow I can't believe out body boy is dead

 * Refrain
