Saigon, It Was All Gone...

Today's Bruce song is "Brothers Under the Bridge." A homeless Vietnam vet tells his story to his child:

I come home in '72
You were just a beautiul light
In your mama's dark eyes of blue
I stood down on the tarmac, I was just a kid
Me and the brothers under the bridge

Come Veterans' Day I sat in the stands in my dress blues
I held your mother's hand
When they passed with the red, white and blue
One minute you're right there ... and something slips...
