Take This Bread Lyrics

by The Felice Brothers

Yo, its uh about 7:00 uh Tuesday Night. Uh Vic said today you guys went to LA. I was just listening to the news man, and the whole fucking Californias on fire over there. The whole southern California, San Antonio's burning. Uh LA's all covered in smoke and everything, I don't know man i guess you're experiencing tonight. I was just wondering if you were aware of that fact. There's a serious, serious fire going on over there. Thousands of homes being burnt up. Fucking Nuts. Uh anyway I know you're busy uh, just call when you get the chance and how you're making out.

Love you to hear from you bro, love you, bye.

Take this bread, if you need a friend
'Cause I'm alright if you're alright
I ain't got a lot, but all I got
You're welcome to it
'Cause I'm alright if you're alright

My neighbor Odetta
Came over to see if I was feeling better
Every morning at 8 through the backyard gate
And of all the pretty things she would bring
There was nothing like that song she sang
That could ease my sorry state
She'd sing to me:

Take this bread, if you need a friend
'Cause I'm alright, if you're alright
I ain't got a lot, but all I got
You're welcome to it
'Cause I'm alright if you're alright

Sha na na na na na
lalalalalala la

Whoa! Take this bread.
Sure thing, If I got bread you got bread
And everybody in my company has got bread
You look a little hungry
I ain't even that hungry, that's how I look at it
Butter side up, butter side down
Doesn't matter to me
If you got a slice, that's nice.

I went for a walk, headlights in the dark
The man was dying in a pick-up truck
He took her from the wall, my parking lot
And killed her by the river
But the cops caught him in the guns

And I said to him..
Take this bread, if you need a friend
'Cause I'm alright, if you're alright
I ain't got a lot, but all I got
You're welcome to it
'Cause I'm alright if you're alright

Take this bread, if you need a friend
'Cause I'm alright if you're alright
I ain't got a lot, but all I got
You're welcome to it
'Cause I'm alright if you're alright
I'm alright if you're alright

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony

She told me in the morning she don't feel the same about us in her bones
It seems to me that when I die these words will be written on my stone
