  • Lyrics: One Man’s History He made it all the way up those stairs When the bag broke Tiny orange soilders Marching down What do we know of one man’s history Of the beautiful battles and the brave deceased Of how they were driven, how they feared for their lives Fighting side by side. Shaking out the white table cloth He remembers the sounds The darkening sky The sea of bodies Mostly he remembers not wanting to die But to return to this land with honor To rest his hands on this table To watch his grandkids grow Two strangers one story Most men come back drinkin hard Tryin to forget Those faces It was the first warm meal in 10 straight days Then the mess tent went up in flames There were buddies flying Grown men crying and a man’s forever changed What do we know of one man’s history What do we know of one man’s history What do we know…………… © Nancy Walker, 2003, Say A Prayer For Ruth Music, BMI
