Lord let me be good enough
to save others...hear my plea
if you've got room for one more soul
you might as well save me
you might as well save me

I'm a jumper with the 508th
just a kid in the first degree
but the fear can turn you older than
any boy has a right to be
I said.."Billy it's too dark up here..
I'll see you on the ground"
then I felt the tap on the back of my leg
and Billy was never found

Has it really been 60 years?
Has it really been that long?
hard to believe there was a time
that I was ever that strong

I could see the tracers from 600 feet
reminded me of home
those July the 4th summer nights
me and my girl....all alone
me and my girl....all alone

I hit the ground and tumbled
fought to cut my harness away
felt like the last GI on the earth
on what you all call D-Day
I can see it now over my shoulder
for many miles have I roamed
but at the time I was fighting
just to find my way home

Has it really been 60 years?
Has it really been that long?
hard to believe there was a time
that I was ever that strong

Now I think about what we did
and what we're doing today
and I wonder what Billy would think
to see it all wasting away
to see it all wasting away

Has it really been 60 years?
Has it really been that long?
hard to believe there was a time
that I was ever that strong
