'60s Child

Written by: Ruben Ramos

When I was a boy,
Just 8 years of age,
I saw - cities burning,
I saw - fires raging,
In the hearts of men.

When I was a boy,
Just 8 years of age,
I heard - Mothers crying,
I heard - leaders lying,
About Vietnam.

And my Mother cried,
Kennedy had died,
In some city called Dallas,
Far - far away
When I was a boy,
Just 8 years of age.
