O como las guerras separan a la gente
Aprovecho que por fin se poner videos en el blog yo sola para enseñarle a mi siempre fiel lector Kevin y, por supuesto a cualquiera que quiera asomarse por mi humilde blog, la primera canción que escuché de las Dixie Chicks, Travelin' Soldier.

Two days past eighteen
He was waiting for the bus in his army green
Sat down in a booth in a cafe there
Gave his order to a girl with a bow in her hair
He's a little shy so she gives him a smile
And he said would you mind sittin' down for a while
And talking to me, I'm feeling a little low
She said I'm off in an hour and I know where we can go

So they went down and they sat on the pier
He said I bet you got a boyfriend but I don't care
I got no one to send a letter to
Would you mind if I sent one back here to you?

I cried
Never gonna hold the hand of another guy
Too young for him they told her
Waitin' for the love of a travelin' soldier
Our love will never end
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
Never more to be alone when the letter said
A soldier's coming home

So the letters came from an army camp
In California then Vietnam
And he told her of his heart
It might be love and all of the things he was so scared of
He said when it's getting kinda rough over here
I think of that day sittin' down at the pier
And I close my eyes and see your pretty smile
Don't worry but I won't be able to write for awhile

One Friday night at a football game
The Lord's Prayer said and the Anthem sang
A man said folks would you bow your heads
For a list of local Vietnam dead
Crying all alone under the stands
Was a piccolo player in the marching band
And one name read and nobody really cared
But a pretty little girl with a bow in her hair

Es una canción muy triste pero que cuenta la situación de una persona no precisamente importante cuando su pais se encuentra en guerra. Porque al fin y al cabo, sean cuales sean las guerras no las luchan aquellos que las ordenan, sino la gente normal y corriente. Personas y vidas que se pierden y que no se puede volver a recuperar.
