Well, an old man said to me
In a voice filled with pain
"Where you going, young man?"
Said, "I'm going to fight a war
Gonna fight for my country in some foreign land"

He said, "The sun will never hurt you
Never harmed anyone, but you must realize
If you try to stare her down
She will win in the end
She will burn your eyes, she will burn them"

Seen a million places
Seen a million faces die
Well, I wonder, who will walk with me
When I get to Heaven

He said, "Boy I was young once
Yeah, I was tough, sailing on Uncle Sam's boat
Hey, I could kill the enemy
I could die on foreign streets
But I could not vote"

"But now you walk by me
You won't talk to me, say this is my fate
But every time you walk, the streets, boy
Most of them you meet, you see
It's you they hate, it's you, yeah"

Seen a million faces
Seen a million places die, places die
Well, I wonder who will walk with me
When I get to Heaven, I hope I get there

Seen a million places
Seen a million faces die
Well, I wonder, who will walk with me
When I get to there

See this woman sitting next to me?
She's been there for a long, long, time
And when I fell, she picked me up
And when I cried, she wiped my tears
I thank God she's mine

And when I leave this world
She won't have anything, but her love for me
Well, the man took everything else
He made me hate myself, so just let her be, boy
Won't you let her be? Yeah

Seen a million places
Seen a million faces die
Seen a million mothers cry
Seen a million brothers dying

But I wonder who will walk with me
When I get there, when I get to Heaven
I hope I get there
When I get to Heaven, yeah
