James Michael Aston graduated in '68.

Gonna be a man. Gonna go to Viet Nam.

James Michael Aston, did you take a mine for me?

Stood right where you died, my friend,

did you die there instead of me?

 

I heard you crying to me, brother.

There was nothing I could do.

Your body torn so viciously,

there'll be no more fighting for you

 

James Michael Aston, talked to your mom today.

Thirty-two years have gone by, and I'm still thinking of you.

 

I heard you crying to me, brother, and still will flow my tears.

Four pounds of high explosives are echoing in my ears.

 

James Michael Aston, I'm preaching in church tomorrow,

And I'll mention you on this Mother's Day, and how a mom

Gave her son that we might live.

It's so much like -

 

" For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son

that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world

but that the world through him might be saved."

 

James Michael Aston, what can I say today?

I don't think that you threw your life away,

For many have remembered you on this day -

James Michael Aston.
