THE WOMEN ON THE WALL
© 1991 John R. Black

On this earth at another time
You gave your life to save mine
In that war so far away
You cared for me in a special way

I heard your voice as you spoke to me
You gave up what you could be
You nursed me through the lonely nights
As the rockets came ‘til dawn’s early light

Chorus:
Oh, Oh Farewell   (Carol Drazba 1966)
Oh, Oh Farewell   (Elizabeth Jones 1966)
Women on the wall
Your spirit is strong
Women on the wall
The boys say so long
Women on the wall
God bless you all
We’ll always remember
The Women on the wall.

At Saigon, Chu Lai and Pleiku
Your tenderness was all we knew
You gave us strength, kept hope alive
You gave your love so we’d survive

Chorus:
Oh, Oh Farewell  (Eleanor Alexander 1967)
Oh, Oh Farewell  (Hedwig Orlowski 1967)
Women on the wall
Your spirit is strong
Women on the wall
The boys say so long
Women on the wall
God bless you all
We’ll always remember
The Women on the wall.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Carol and Elizabeth you’re living on
Eleanor and Hedwig not really gone
Pamela and Sharon history will tell
Annie and Mary we’ll remember you well

Oh, Oh Farewell    (Pamela Donovan 1968)
       (Sharon Lane 1968)
Oh, Oh, Farewell    (Annie Graham 1969)
       (Mary Klinker 1975)
Women on the wall
Your spirit is strong
Women on the wall
The boys say so long
Women on the wall
God bless you all
We’ll always remember
The Women on the wall.

Women on the wall
Your spirit is strong
Women on the wall
The boys say so long
Women on the wall
God bless you all
We’ll always remember
The Women on the wall.
They’re all in our hearts
The Women on the wall.
Always remember
The Women on the wall.
