Galveston", a beautiful song that was a big hit. I never realized it was an anti Vietnam war song
Actually, Jimmy Webb, songwriter, was on a beach in Galveston when he wrote the song. He made up the story about a soldier in the Spanish-American war and the girl he left behind.
Still, a befitting war song, leaving those you love...
"Galveston, oh, Galveston,
I still hear your seawaves crashin,
while I watch the cannons flashin'.
I clean my gun, and dream of Galveston."
