More Than a Name on a Wall Lyrics - The Statler Brothers

Review The Song (3)



I saw her from a distance
As she walked up to the wall
in her hand she held some flowers
as her tears began to fall
and she took out pen and paper
as to trace her memories
and she looked up to heaven
and the words she said were these...

She said Lord my boy was special,
and he meant so much to me
and Oh I'd love to see him
just one more time you see
All I have are the memories
and the moments to recall

So Lord could you tell him,
He's more than a name on a wall..

She said he really missed the family
and being home on Christmas day
and he died for God and Country
in a place so far away

I remember just a little boy
playing war since he was three
But Lord this time I know,
He's not coming home to me

And she said Lord my boy was special,
and he meant so much to me
and Oh I'd love to see him
But I know it just can't be
So I thank you for my memories
and the moments to recall

But Lord could you tell him,
He's more than a name on a wall..

Lord could you tell him,
He's more than a name on a wall..

It has been nearly 40 years since I was there and I can still see the faces, the blood and the pain. I was their "Doc" but I couldn't save them all. This song haunts me but I don't ever want to lose it from my brain. God Bless those fine young men.

Was in the Marine Corps from 1971 - 1974. I knew many a guy who went to Viet Nam. This song tells the story of all of us who experienced the "after effect" of war. Tho I never experienced war (Women's Lib didn't come to the Marines till after Viet Nam) this song tells how everone who knew someone or lost someone in this war. I cry evertime I hear it and will always remember the faces.
