I am on a Riverboat on the Saigon River
Where the music's too loud
While I try to have my dinner
Stories I've been told of 1954

When the bodies washed ashore from that distant war
My friend Michael came in '68
The bodies still floating with the dinner boats sailing
Beside all those souls of the American war

Oh, deliver me to the river of souls
In the heart of Indochina
Deliver me to a River at Peace
In this twenty-first century

All those souls that floated free
In these dark war's waters
All the souls now swim together
The French the Viet Minn

Those American boys
The souls of the Saigon River
At peace in Indochina

I am in a caffe in Ho Chi Minn City
My friend Bobby Muller is sitting with me
This traffic is maddening
In his wheelchair he's napping

I wonder at times, does he walk in his dreams?
Later I walked all the way from Tu Do Street
To the banks of the river with the dinner boats sailing
Beside all of the souls, of a River in Peace

Oh, deliver me to the river of souls
In the heart of Indochina
Deliver me to a River at Peace
In this twenty-first century

All those souls that floated free
In these dark war's waters
All the souls now swim together
The French the Viet Minn

Those American boys
The souls of the Saigon River
At peace in Indochina

Hoa binh, hoa binh
(Peace in Vietnamese)
Peace in the heart of Indochina
