Luang Prabang (Dave Van Ronk) When I came back from Luang Prabang I didn't have a thing where my balls used to hang But I got a wooden medal and a fine harangue Now I'm a fucking hero cho: Mourn your dead, land of the free If you wanna be a hero, follow me Mourn your dead, land of the free If you wanna be a hero, follow me And now the boys all envy me I fought for Christian democracy With nothing but air where my balls used to me Now I'm a fucking hero One and twenty cannons thundered Into the bloody pale blue yonder For a patriotic balless wonder Now I'm a fucking hero In Luang Prabang there is a spot Where the corpses of your brothers rot And every corpse is a patriot And every corpse is a hero Copyright Folklore Music ASCAP Van Ronk's answer to "wimpy anti-war songs." The melody is "Byker Hill" VH Apr98
