Another great song

Caroline's Spine-Sullivan


Its not hard to reach back to the day
underneath an Iowa sun
running to the tower of Waterloo
looking for the Sullivan train to come
His five boys would run to the top and salute him as he went
By
first he'd wave hello, and then we'd wave goodbye.
it's not hard to reach back to the days
after the attack on Pearl
and overnight my buddies turned into men
running out of time for games and girls.
The Sullivan boys were not overlooked
Uncle Sam called them each by name.
The very next day they left on a mystery train.
"...we regret to inform you,
the Navy has taken your sons away..." all five...
so put your blue star in the window.
It's not hard to reach back to here smile
when she'd receive a letter.
The letters sounded generally the same it said
if they couldn't be home at least they were together
on a mighty fighting battleship,
somewhere in the south pacific.
The letters never got much more specific.
Say goodbye Mrs. Sullivan and don't you cry
"...we regret to inform you
that the Navy is keeping your sons away" all five...
so keep your blue star in the window.
It's nothard to reach back to the day the war finally came
Home
Uncle Sam will send you a telegram,
so he doesn't have to tell you over the phone.
I heard she cracked up when she found what the war had cost.
All five of her boys were lost.
Say goodbye Mrs. Sullivan don't you cry.
"...we regret to inform you all your sons have passed away."
All five...
So change your blue star to gold.

  • hey fuckface. If it wasn't for men like the Sullivans the Nazis might have - no, scratch that, WOULD HAVE - taken over the world. How different would your life be right now if the Axis Powers had won WWII? Did you read the description at the top of the page of what these men went through? Those sacrifices they made are the reason they received a medal of honor. What the hell have you ever done that you feel you should receive such an award? People like you make me sick.



  • not trying to be rude but it's people like you who say no i won't fight or kill but once things get bad you run and hide behind those who will fight and kill and yes even die for you and the others like you.

I always liked that song. The song basically follows their story as the movie told it. It's a good older movie to watch if you happen to catch it on cable sometime.
