Shadow Of A Man (LP Version)

Shadow Of A Man (LP Version)

Oysterhead

Billy came back from Vietnam
Just a shadow of a man
He was a shadow of a man
When he came back from Vietnam
Billy came back from Vietnam
Just a shadow of a man
He was a shadow of a man
When he came back from Vietnam
He was spraying that Agent Orange
On the foliage of the land
Out of 80-gallon cans
Way back in Vietnam
Billy came back from Vietnam
Just a shadow of a man
He was a shadow of a man
When he came back from Vietnam

He married him up a woman that he
Like to call Diane
Though her true name was Mai-Pan
She changed her name to Mrs. Graham
After two stillborn babies
Billy said I am just a portion of the man
I was before I went to Nam
Now he drinks and snorts amphetamine
Just as often as he can
He's a shadow of a man
Spent his time in Vietnam

Billy came back from Vietnam
Just a shadow of a man
He was a shadow of a man
When he came back from Vietnam
