Ken Jordan / Darden Smith / Gary Nicholson

1970 to 71
Just another kid in Vietnam
I saw things you wouldn’t believe
Sitting here talking man it’s taking me back
Stories start coming I start to lose track
If I’ve told this one before, just stop me

Cause I’m just getting started

Saigon, Phu Bai, Ben Hoa, Danang
The mountains of Pleiku, no two the same
I carry these places across all time
I tell you these stories so you can see
Down deep into the soul of me
And telling this story keeps that part of me alive

I’m just getting started

Soldiers go away some come home
The memories live on
The memories just live on
I’m just getting started

I’m just getting started
