    Oh she was high up there in the air
    Caught still by a soldier's stare
    Whenever it was men amongst men
    Down upon the land
    And she followed those mother's sons
    She felt the thunder of their guns
    From a pearl's eye view, just a camera in her hand
    She was born Georgette but the name
    Didn't suit her well
    So, she blew out of Wisconsin as Dickey Chapelle

    Oh, she flew with a pilot's pride
    The first witness to either side
    She carried relief to the lost ones
    Between the bombs
    And we saw it all through her lens
    She knew she'd go back again
    When the call rang out once more from Vietnam
    She's been through this before,
    She'll tell ya war is hell
    Her pearl earrings caught the light
    On Dickey Chapelle

    Oh, that's the way it was
    She was the only one to tell
    In 1962,
    She blew the whistle loud and clear
    Now we trace her wings
    In her footsteps without fear
    To the front lines where she fell
    Where she lies still
    But she's still there

    It was 1965,
    Over Chu Lai in a free fall dive
    In a dawn patrol to cover the dead zone ground
    She tiptoed through the land mines
    All along the enemy lines
    But she never saw the one that took her down
    She captured the bloody pearls of war so well
    That war was bound to steal the end of Dickey Chapelle

    Dickey Chapelle (from a pearl's eye view)
    Dickey Chapelle (from a pearl's eye view)
    Dickey Chapelle (from a pearl's eye view)
    Dickey Chapelle.
