    For 15 years Le Bin SonFought side by side with the Americans
    In the mountains and deltas
    of VietnamIn '75 Saigon fell and he left his command
    And brought his family to the promised land
    Seabrook, Texas and the small towns in the Gulf of Mexico
    It was delta country and reminded him of home
    He worked as a machinist, put his money away
    And bought a shrimp boat with his cousin
    And together they harvested Galveston Bay
    In the mornin' 'fore the sun come up
    He'd kiss his sleepin' daughter
    Steer out thru thechannel
    And cast his nets into the water
    Billy Sutter fought with Charlie Company
    In the highlands of Quang Tri
    He was wounded in the battle of Chu Lai
    Shipped home in '68
    There he married and worked the gulf fishing grounds
    In a boat that'd been his father's
    In the morning he'd kiss his sleeping son
    And cast his nets into the water
    Billy sat in front of his TV as the South fell
    And the communists rolled into Saigon
    He and his friends watched as the refugees came
    Settled on the same streets and worked the coast they'd grew up on
    Soon in the bars around the harbor was talk
    Of America for the Americans
    Someone said 'You want 'em out, you got to burn 'em out.'
    And brought in the Texas Klan
    One humid Texas night there were 3 shadows on the harbor
    Come to burn the Vietnamese into the sea
    In the fire's light shots rang out
    2 Texans lay dead on the ground
    Le stood with a pistol in his hand
    A jury acquitted him in self-defense
    As before the judge he did stand
    But as Le walked down the courthouse steps
    Billy said 'My friend you're a dead man.'
    One late summer night Le stood watch along the waterside
    Billy stood in the shadows
    His K-bar knife in his hand
    And the moon slipped behind the clouds
    Le lit a cigarette, the bay was still as glass
    As he walked by Billy stuck his knife into his pocket
    Took a breath and let him pass
    In the early darkness Billy rose up
    Went into the kitchen for a drink of water
    Kissed his sleeping wife
    Headed into the channel
    And cast his nets into the water
    Of Galveston Bay
