lyrics

THE CHARMER

The son of Vietnam
One whose thunder did return
The voices of the past
Try to keep from getting burned
But love is never lost
And he prayed to live another Dawn…

And he went to the West
They say its God’s Country
And he survived nature’s test
Hard living is soul’s foundry…

He loved the girls and let them cry
He didn’t care if he lived or died

And they called him (2x)
The charmer (2x)

A Buckeye ‘till the very, very end
A few old flames and many, many friends
And sons and daughters will defend
Life’s currency is finally spent…

Final meeting upon the mountain
Charmer’s heart, an eternal fountain

And they called him (7x)
The charmer (3x)
