Weep No More

Nathan McKinney recorded the doo-wop track "Weep No More", composed by the blues man Len Johnson. The song, released on the Los Angeles based label Rayco Records (R-526), founded by Floyd Ray, contained themes of the Vietnam War. It is narrated from the soldier's perspective, who tells us that "Uncle Sam is calling for me", and that he is resigned to leaving those he loves: "So I guess I'll have to go".

Vietnam War Songs
Weep no more, my baby for me
Weep no more, I say
Daddy is gonna be back, home to you
Some bright and sunny day

You know that Uncle Sam is calling for me
So I guess I'll have to go
But remember that I'm gonna miss you
Much more then you will ever know

But while I'm going
baby don't you weep
Weep no more, my baby for me

Just give me one more kiss before I go
Then turn around and walk away
For I want to remember you just like you are
For in my heart you will always say

But while I'm going
baby don't you weep
Weep no more, my baby for me
