Deadman's Journey / The Land Before The River

It's been a long night of listening to music
Hurling lyrics here and there
I'll spare you that
Stolen wine and olives
I can almost smell the burning again

Oh John
Deep in America in 1960
You found an empty motel
Talked about Presidents
Goatsmilk candy and jackrabbits

But you didn't live to see
The end of your son's war
Would you rather have?
Would you have seen
Where Operation Igloo White was going?
Would you have wanted to?

I think you would.
I think you would.
