See What You Done, Done (Hymn No. 9)

Delia Gartrell
Language: English



Can't you see what you done done to my only son
my only son, my only son
Can't you see what you done done to my only son
Why he was fighting in your war

America, I gave you my only son
Right away you sent him off
To fight in Vietnam.
He was a good soldier
and he really did his part
I was so proud when he won that medal
The one they call the Purple Heart

I didn't know that when he went off
to serve his country
I didn't know you'd send him back to me
a stoned junkie

Can't you see what you done done to my only son
my only son, my only son
Can't you see what you done done to my only son
Why he was fighting in your war

You see... I watched him one day
take some money from my purse
And that's when I knew
I knew that his habit had gotten worse
To protect his country
well I think that's a hell of a price to pay
and you let his real enemy
you let it push him get away

Likle most mothers
I still get on my knees to pray
But my son died from an overdose
last Mother's day

Now can't you see what you done done to my only son
my only son, my only son
I didn't have but one
Can't you see what you done done to my only son
Why he was fighting in your war
