Helicopter Man by Dudley G. Hale
Flies on air, the helicopter can
Everyone on board must trust that man
Flies over your cities and out again
quicker than a candle (can)
But the lives of Vets who aren’t dead yet
untie the blades and get in the cockpit
and please don’t sweat the small shit
Here’s the secrete of the initial trick
light it off, keep the fire lit
trim off the forces on the cyclic
let your craft begin to handle
Flying on the road 30 years and longer
captured by pink motels my feeling get stronger
you know I can continue this life forever
if need be, Lord, if need be
