Текст песни Bruce Springsteen - Galveston Bay

For fifteen years Le Bin Son
Fought side by side with the Americans
In the mountains and deltas of Vietnam
In 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
Hed kiss his sleepin daughter
Steer out through the channel
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 thatd been his fathers
In the morning hed 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 theyd grew up on

Soon in the bars around the harbor was talk
Of America for 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 three shadows on the harbor
Come to burn the Vietnamese boats into the sea
In the fires light shots rang out
Two 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 youre 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
