To Susan On The West Coast Waiting

Not an enormous hit but one that really hit the mark on the personal life of those who served in Vietnam. The loneliness and the feeling that, by 1969, that the war was a hopeless thing and the only escape was to do your time, hopefully survive, and go home to your loved ones.

The Vietnam War Song Page
Dear Susan, I know you love me so
But I want to hear it in my ear.
You know I'd be there working at my craft
Had it not been for the draft.
Dry up your tear and feel no fear,
You're here with me like I'm there with you.

To Susan on the West Coast waiting,
From Andy in Vietnam fighting.
To Susan on the West Coast waiting,
From Andy in Vietnam fighting.
I'm writing a note beneath a tree,

The smell of the rain on the greenery.
Our fathers have painfully lost their way,
That's why, my love, I'm here today
Hear me when I say there will come a day
When Kings will know and love can grow.

To Susan on the West Coast waiting,
From Andy in Vietnam fighting.
To Susan on the West Coast waiting,
From Andy in Vietnam fighting.
To Susan on the West Coast waiting,
From Andy in Vietnam fighting.
To Susan on the West Coast waiting,
From Andy in Vietnam fighting.

Susan, I know you love me so
But I'd like to hear it in my ear.
You know I'd be there working at my craft
Had it not been for the draft.
Dry up your tear and feel no fear,
You're here with me like I'm there with you.

To Susan on the West Coast waiting,
From Andy in Vietnam fighting.
To Susan on the West Coast waiting,
From Andy in Vietnam fighting.
To Susan on the West Coast waiting,
From Andy supposedly hating.
To Susan on the West Coast waiting,
From Andy in Vietnam fighting.

Versione italiana di Eleonora
A SUSAN CHE ASPETTA SULLA COSTA OVEST

Cara Susan, lo so che mi ami tanto
Ma voglio sentirmelo dire di persona.
Sai che sarei lì con voi a lavorare
se non mi avessero chiamato alle armi.
Asciugati le lacrime e non aver paura,
Sei qui con me proprio come io sono lì con te.

A Susan che aspetta sulla Costa Ovest,
Da Andy che combatte in Vietnam.
A Susan che aspetta sulla Costa Ovest,
Da Andy che combatte in Vietnam.

Scrivo qualche riga all'ombra di un albero,
La boscaglia odora di pioggia.
Questo, amore mio, è il motivo per cui ora sono qui,
Ma ascoltami, verrà il giorno
in cui i Re sapranno e l'amore potrà diffondersi.

A Susan che aspetta sulla Costa Ovest,
Da Andy che combatte in Vietnam.
A Susan che aspetta sulla Costa Ovest,
Da Andy che combatte in Vietnam.
A Susan che aspetta sulla Costa Ovest,
Da Andy che combatte in Vietnam.

Susan, lo so che mi ami tanto,
Ma mi piacerebbe poter sentirtelo dire di persona.
Sai che sarei lì con voi a lavorare
se non mi avessero chiamato alle armi.
Asciugati le lacrime e non aver paura,
Sei qui con me proprio come io sono lì con te.

A Susan che aspetta sulla Costa Ovest,
Da Andy che combatte in Vietnam.
A Susan che aspetta sulla Costa Ovest,
Da Andy che combatte in Vietnam.
A Susan che aspetta sulla Costa Ovest,
Da Andy che combatte in Vietnam.
A Susan che aspetta sulla Costa Ovest,
Da Andy che combatte in Vietnam.
