A Music Video: Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day

This is a great song that truly captures the spirit of “Welcome Home” and our mission to honor those Veterans who fought in Vietnam, who fought in wars before, and who continue to fight today to keep our citizens safe and free!

Be sure to read the lyrics below as you listen along. They’re beautiful and powerful.

WE WANT TO THANK YOU
Rockie Lynne

THIS SONG IS FOR ALL YOU DID
I SAW YOU BACK WHEN I WAS A KID
SAIGON WAS BURNING ON MY TV
I REMEMBER WHEN YOU CAME HOME
YOU MUST HAVE FELT ALL ALONE
IT’S A LITTLE LATE BUT I’M GONNA SAY IT

THANK YOU
I WANT TO THANK YOU FROM MY HEART
AND THERE’S A MILLION OTHERS JUST LIKE ME
WHO WANT TO DO THE SAME
WE’RE GONNA THANK YOU
FINALLY SAY THE WORDS WE SHOULD HAVE SAID
IT’S LONG OVERDUE
WE WANT TO THANK YOU

WELCOME HOME AFTER ALL THESE YEARS
WE’VE SEEN THE WALL WE’VE SHARED YOUR TEARS
FIFTY EIGHT THOUSAND FOUR HUNDRED AND SEVENTY NINE STRONG
BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN FELL
LORD KNOWS IT MUST HAVE BEEN HELL
AND I’M SORRY THAT IT TOOK SO LONG

THANK YOU
I WANT TO THANK YOU FROM MY HEART
AND THERE’S A MILLION OTHERS JUST LIKE ME
WHO WANT TO DO THE SAME
WE’RE GONNA THANK YOU
FINALLY SAY THE WORDS WE SHOULD HAVE SAID
IT’S LONG OVERDUE
WE WANT TO THANK YOU

THANK YOU
I WANT TO THANK YOU FROM MY HEART
AND THERE’S A MILLION OTHERS JUST LIKE ME
WHO WANT TO DO THE SAME
WE’RE GONNA THANK YOU
FINALLY SAY THE WORDS WE SHOULD HAVE SAID
IT’S LONG OVERDUE
WE WANT TO THANK YOU

IT’S SO LONG OVERDUE
WE WANT TO THANK YOU
