HAVE YOU HEARD

Have you heard, of the one-seventy-third, Air-borne-Brigade

Have you heard, of the one-seventy-third, Air-borne-Brigade

 

How they jumped on the enemy like a flacon from the blue

A more gallant fighting soldier America never knew

 

Have you heard, of the one-seventy-third, Air-borne-Brigade

 

They fought fearlessly hand to hand in the Central Highlands

How their blood has stained the sands in the hills of Vietnam

 

Have you heard, of the one-seventy-third, Air-borne-Brigade

 

How with their rifles cradled they descend from the Sky

As their ripcord snapped their parachute they screamed their battle cry

 

Have you heard, of the one-seventy-third, Air-borne-Brigade

 

How they won a gallant victory on hill eight seven five

How they learned the price of freedom for 280 died

 

Have you heard, of the one-seventy-third, Air-borne-Brigade

 

Now you heard, of the one-seventy-third, Air-borne-Brigade
