Where Do Soldiers Go

Lyrics & Music by Fredrick J. Lynch
Album: Time Slips Away
Ronnie came home from the war
I watched him arrive
At a little shotgun house
Out on airport drive..
He let the taxi go
Just before he turned to see
An empty house with windows out
And grass up to his knees..

Where do soldiers go
With their purple hearts
Shining like a light
And living in the dark?
Where do soldiers go
With their bronze and broken souls?
If you know
Where do soldiers go?

Jessee rolled his wheelchair
Down the yellow rail
As I placed his poppy flowers
Upon my lapel...
He flagged the taxi down
And the driver helped him load
I just waved goodbye
As he went down the road..

Where do soldiers go
With their purple hearts
Shining like a light
And living in the dark..
Where do soldiers go
With their bronze and broken souls..
If you know
Where do soldiers go?

There's fear in the face of a young son's mother
When she finds he has to go
There's fear in the eye's of a sad young bride
And they both love him so..
He just waved goodbye -as he went down the road

Where do soldiers go
With their purple hearts
Shining like a light
And living in the dark...
Where do soldiers go
With their bronze and broken souls...
If you know
Where do soldiers go?
