play Six Feet Under

from TURN BUY

Walking on the shore of Chicago
Came upon a park along the way
Two flags flying by a fountain
And the words underneath it said

There were four men in Vietnam
Trying to kill the Vietcong
A grenade came in
And the boy gave his own life
To save three others
With no regard for his own life
No regard for his own life

Six feet under
Sit feet under in the ground
Six feet under
Six feet under in the ground

And a tear came to my eyes
As I read the story
But that's not what moved me the most
It's that someone from the family
Brought a picture to the grave
The frame was golden
The picture faded
From the sun and the rain
A first class private
With a family
Had been put into a grave

Six feet under
Six feet under in the ground
Six feet under
Six feet under in the ground

Gonna have a baby
Put him in the army
Six feet under in the ground
(Rpt. x4)
