Uncommon Valor (A Vietnam Story) Lyrics - Jedi Mind Tricks

Review The Song (34)



[Verse 1 - Vinnie Paz]
Yeah..

I don't know why I'm over here this job is evil
They send me here to Vietnam to kill innocent people
My mother wrote me said the President he doesn't care
We trying to leave the footprints of America here
They say we're trying to stop Chinese expansion
But I ain't seen no Chinese since we landed
Sent my whole entire unit thinking we can win
Against the Viet-Cong guerillas there in Gia Dinh
I didn't sign up to kill women or any children
For every enemy soldier, we killing six civilians
Yeah, and that ain't right to me
I ain't got enough of mother fuckin' fight in me
It frightens me and I just want to see my son and moms
But over here they dropping seven million tons of bombs
sponsored links
I spend my days dodging all these booby traps and mines
And at night, praying to God that I get back alive
And I'm forced to sit back and wonder
Why I was a part of 'Operation Rolling Thunder'
In a fox hole with nine months left here
Jungle like the fuckin' harbinger of death here

[Interlude]
(soldier speaking)
I don't want to be here. I'm scared, I just want to go home.
(officer speaking)
You fucking kidding me? Don't be a pussy. Don't you love your country?
(soldier speaking)
I like being here. I'm ready.

[Verse 2 - R.A. The Rugged Man]
True story...
Call me Thorburn, John A. Staff Sergeant, Marksman
Skilling, killing, illing
I'm able and willing
Kill a village elephant, rapin' and pillage your village
Illegitimate killers, US Military guerillas
This ain't no real war, Vietnam shit
World War II, that's a war, this is just a military conflict
Soothing, drug-abusing, Vietnamese women screwing
Sex, gambling and boozin', all the shit is amusing
Bitches and guns, this is every man's dream
I don't want to go home, where I'm just a ordinary human being
Special OP, Huey chopper gun ship, run shit
Gook run when the mini-gun spit, won't miss, kill shit
Spit four-thousand bullets a minute
Victor Charlie, hit trigger, hit it
I'm in it to win it, get it
The lieutenant hinted the villain, I've ended up killing
I did it, cripple, did it, pictures I painted is vivid, live it
A wizard with weapons, a secret mission we about to begin it
Government funded, behind enemy lines bullets is spraying
It's heating up, a hundred degrees
The enemies the North-Vietnamese, bitch please
Ain't no sweat, I'm told be at ease.
Until I see the pilot got hit, and we about to hit some trees
till the rotor broke, crash land, American man
Cambodia, right in the enemy hand
Take a swig of the whiskey to calm us
Them yellow men wearing black pajamas
They want to harm us
They all up on us
Bang, bang, bullet hit my chest, feel no pain
To my left, the captain caught a bullet right in his brain
Body parts flying, loss of limbs, explosions
Bad intentions, I see my best friend's intestins
Pray to the one above, It's raining and I'm covered in mud
I think I'm dying, I feel dizzy, I'm losing blood
I see my childhood, I'm back in the arms of my mother
I see my whole life, I see Christ, I see bright lights
I see Israelites, Muslims and Christians at peace, no fights
Blacks, Whites, Asians, people of all types
I must have died, then I woke up, suprised I'm alive
I'm in a hospital bed, they rescued me, I survived
I escaped the war, came back
But ain't escape Agent Orange, two of my kids born handicapped
Spastic, quadriplegia, micro cephalic
Cerebral palsy, cortical blindness, name it they had it
My son died he ain't live, but I still try to think positive
Cause in life, God take, God give

sick. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/14/10

how refreshing to hear a rap about something worth talking about... seems like since 2Pac everyone's forgotten real issues, except these guys.

and not only that, this is one of the best raps i've heard simply for the flow, never mind the subject matter



meaning | Reviewer: jack bower | 7/29/10

this is such a profound song... the way the lyrics sound like a machine gun firing after he says "Gook run when the mini-gun spit, won't miss, kill shit
Spit four-thousand bullets a minute"... then it just goes offffffff

Best song ever!!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/25/09

This is the best fucking song I've ever heard, it's crazy lyricaly and it's really deep and touching. I've never been in the military or anything but I've heard stories and they are pretty acurate in this song as to wat happend.



amazing | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/10/09

Yeah RA's Verse is about his Father everything is accurate... he sat down and interviewed his dad and this shit he said took him a week to write ... They where gonna do a different beat before but then Stoupe changed the beat and RA changed his lyrics thank god cause this is the best verse ive ever heard in rap history fo real this is what all rappers should inspire to write one day i know I do

Amazing | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/4/08

Vinnie Paz's verse is sick, a great verse, but R.A.'s verse is one of THE best in rap history. Amazing. I loved it the first time I heard it, but it grew a lot on me when I found out that R.A.'s talking about his dad's real experiences. Props!



This song means so much | Reviewer: Jack Wilson | 7/2/08

Jedi mind tricks mean so much, after my dad died of canser and my dad left, me and my bro had to look after our selfs, but 3 months now he got shot in a crossfire shoot out, im only 19 but i really think every day when i come home and listen to this song it makes me so much better and now i rapp, it releves the hate from the people in my life that take my love away, i wish i could meet Jedi mind one day, u are my family, i hope u get this xxx
