Lyrics

Rolling Thunder

I still can remember the burn of the sun the heat of December
The crawl of the insects the fear in the eyes of the boys
My brothers in arms
And the pulse of the blades as they cut through the morning
Splitting the sky then releasing and pouring
The arc of the powder sifting down bleeding around us
My brothers in arms

I’ll be borne away I’ll be carried by Rolling Thunder
Find me lift me take me home now where I belong
As I drift away the engines and rotors play Rolling Thunder
Finally let me go into oblivion gone gone with my brothers in arms

And my friends and my brothers who died in the jungle
Just wanting to go home to their families and lovers
Were spared the impersonal clinical hallways that wind us through the VAs
It seems I have lived longer and stronger and bright
With designs on my body and a fire in my bike
With people who love me I’ve fought on and on for my life
My brothers in arms

I’ll be borne away I’ll be carried by Rolling Thunder
Find me lift me take me home now where I belong
As I drift away the engines and rotors play Rolling Thunder
Finally let me go into oblivion gone gone with my brothers in arms

Wrap me in love hold me up with your power
Grace my last journey have my last hour
Carry me gently with steel and with chrome
Lay me down peacefully carry me home

When the snow’s falling down soft in December
Closing my eyes I can’t help but remember
The light sting of chemicals drifting around us and changing our world
And the cancers that bloom in our bodies and minds
The battles we still seem to fight all the time
And the way Vietnam marked us and claimed us as hers
My brothers in arms

I’ll be borne away I’ll be carried by Rolling Thunder
Find me lift me take me home now where I belong
