i was only 19 lyrics the herd

And what's this rash that comes and goes like the dreams can you tell me what that means? God help me, I was only nineteen. Though he didn't go to Vietnam, he's old enough to have friends who did, and who have had their lives destroyed by that war. This song reduced me to tears the first time I heard it. Mum and Dad and Denny saw the passing out parade at Puckapunyal It was a long march from Cadets The sixth battalion was the next to tour It was me who drew the card we did Canungra and Shoalwater before we left And Townsville lined the footpaths as we marched down to the quay This clipping from the paper shows us young and strong and clean. On principle I don't agree with war, but people who have gone to fight do deserve our respect for doing their jobs and surviving, what would have to be horrible situations and experiences. God Help Me I was only 19. God help me, I was only nineteen.

i was only 19 lyrics the herd

The Vietnam War was the longest and most controversial war Australia has ever fought. God help me, I was only nineteen Mum and Dad and Denny saw the passing out parade at Puckapunyal It was a long march from Cadets The sixth battalion was the next to tour It was me who drew the card We did Canungra and Shoalwater before we left So please can you tell me doctor, why I can't get to sleep I can't hardly eat? General CommentThis song means alotv to me because military runs in my families blood. God help me, I was only nineteen. And the sound of the Channel Seven chopper still chills me to my feet Still fuels my grief? God help me, I was only nineteen So please can you tell me doctor why I can't get to sleep I can hardly eat? Whilst house is his main genre, he often swings towards vocals or to the underground, depending on what the crowd are going for. And what's this rash that comes and goes Can you tell me what it means? God help me, I was only 19.

General CommentThe first time I heard this song I was in year 12, and I was part of a drama ensemble. Anzac stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, the original name given to the forces that landed on Gallipoli Beach in World War One. And the sound of the Channel Seven chopper still chills me to my feet still fuels my grief? And the sound of the Channel Seven chopper still chills me to my feet still fuels my grief? And the sound of the Channel Seven chopper still chills me to my feet Still fuels my grief? And night time's just a jungle dark and a barking M. God help me, I was only 19 Sent off on a four week long operation Where every single step could be your last one On Two legs, It was sore to live You had fallen with the shells, war within yourself But you wouldn't let your mates down Till they had you dusted off So you closed your eyes And thought of something else Someone yelled contact, another bloke swore We hooked in for hours then a God Almighty roar Then Frankie kicked a mine the day That mankind kicked the moon God help me, he was going home in June And I can't still see Frank with a can in his hand 36 hour leave in the bar at the grand I can still hear frank, a screaming mess A bleeding flesh, couldn't retrieve his legs The Anzac legend neglected to mention The mud, the fear, the blood, the tears, the tension Dads recollection beyond comprehension Didn't seem quite real until he was sent in The chaos and confusion, the fire of steel Oh shrapnel in my back I didn't even feel God help me, I was only 19 So Please can ya' tell me doctor Why I can't get to sleep, I can't hardly eat And the sound of the channel seven chopper Stills chills me to my feet, stills fuels my grief And whats this rash that comes And goes like the dreams Can you tell me what that means? Agent Orange was a herbicide used to kill the jungle to reduce the cover. . The sixth battalion was the next to tour, and it was me who drew the card.

God help me I was only nineteen A four week operation, when each step can mean your last one on two legs It was a war within yourself But you wouldn't let your mates down 'til they had you dusted off So you closed your eyes and thought about somethin' else And then someone yelled out contact, and the bloke behind me swore We hooked in there for hours, then a God almighty roar And Frankie kicked a mine the day that mankind kicked the moon God help me He was goin' home in June And I can still see Frankie, drinkin' tinnies in the Grand Hotel On a thirty-six hour rec. If they were working in areas that were light green on the map, that meant light jungle, not much cover and heaps of mines. God help me i was only 19 Mum and Dad and Denny saw the passing-out parade at Puckapunyal It was a long march from cadets. And why the Channel Seven chopper chills me to my feet? And what's this rash that comes and goes, can you tell me what it means? Vung Tau and Nui Dat are cities in Vietnam. And what's this rash that comes and goes Like the dreams, can you tell me what that means? And what's this rash that comes and goes like the dreams can you tell me what that means? God help me, I was only 19 Mum and dad and Denny Saw the passing out parade at Puckapunyal It was a long march from cadets The sixth battalion was the next to tour And it was me who drew the card We did Canungra, Shoalwater before we left So please can ya' tell me doctor Why I can't get to sleep, I can't hardly eat And the sound of the channel seven chopper Stills chills me to my feet, stills fuels my grief And whats this rash that comes And goes like the dreams Can you tell me what that means? And what's this rash that comes and goes Like the dreams, can you tell me what that means? Mum, Dad and Denny were some amongst many who came to watch the passing out parade at Puckapunyal Seemed every man and his mongrel came watched cadets stumble on the long march to the Viet jungle. We did Canungra, Shoalwater before we left So Please can ya' tell me doctor why I can't Get to Sleep, I can't hardly eat and the sound of the channel seven chopper stills chills me to my feet, stills fuels my grief and whats this rash that comes and goes, like the dreams Can you tell me what that means? My Dad played it for me, and we both sobbed. They all deserve our understanding and respect and for me that is what this song is, a reminder to show understanding and respect for courageous men and women who serve in the armed forces.
