Oysterhead – Shadow Of Man lyrics

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
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 liked to call Diane
Though her true name was Mai-Pan
She changed her name to Mrs. Graham
After two still born 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
'Cause he's a shadow of the man, he 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
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
