This one goes out on Veterans Day.
Cheers to all of the Veterans in our country past or present.
This is a cover of one of my favorite Nilsson tunes.
Enjoy!

lyrics

I'm an old, forgotten soldier
Since we put an end to war
And Id like to tell my story
But you don't wanna hear about the war

I'm an old, forgotten railroad
A deserted ammo-train
And my rusty ammunition
Has been left out in the rain
I'm an old, forgotten campaign hero
Left without a cause
Because, there isn't any cause
Well, I'm an old, forgotten soldier
Since we put an end to war
And Id like to tell my story
But you don't wanna hear about war

I'm an old, forgotten campaign hero
Left without a cause
Because, they took away my war
Yodel

about

Samuel Stiles Chicago, Illinois

You can take the man out of New Orleans...but
You can't take the New Orleans out of the man...
Life has taken me all over the world...including a stint living in New Zealand...
Some may know me as Matt Martin...
You may have known me by my past and present musical works...
Amerigo, World Leader Pretend, Andy Wagner, Theresa Andersson, Steve Eck, and Rachel Ries.
