Sonny was my best friend
He got called to Vietnam

Sonny was my best friend
He went away to Vietnam

Said, "Watch out for my wife and baby"
"And I'll count on you when I'm gone."

I looked in every day
Just like Sonny said

Ohhh, and I'm not sure just when
We both lost our heads

And I'd hang around at night
And fill her lonely, lonely bed

(Painful guitar solo)

Sonny made it home
And he's proud of what he's done

Ohhh, but he can't walk too good, no
And he'll never see the sun

And his pain is just beginning
I'm so ashamed of what I've done

Sonny's pain is just beginning
I'm so ashamed of what I've done
