Mini-Your-Dress Is Too Short / Viet Nam

In the blues / gospel track "Viet Nam" (Gospel Corner Records # GC-127) Madame Nellie Robinson pleaded for the conclusion of the Vietnam War - "settle this war in Vietnam" - in order to stop people from dying: "lord have mercy, a child is dying". It considered the pain felt by those fighting: "soldiers laying in mud". It also looked at the family and friends of soldiers in the US: "mothers and fathers at home crying". Robinson signed to the label Gospel Corner, based in Los Angeles, California, by Brother Hudson in 1968, a subsidiary of Proverb Records.

Composed by Madame Nellie Robinson. Produced by Bro. Henderson.

let's pray to settle this war in Vietnam

Soldiers laying in mud holes moaning,
mothers and fathers at home crying,
Lord have mercy
A child is dying

Vietnam, Vietnam
Vietnam, Vietnam
let's pray to settle this war in Vietnam

I got a letter yesterday
saying 'mother I'll be home soon'
The next day I received a telegram
Your son is dead and gone

Joshua waved (?) praying
and told the lord stop the sun
Sun stood still
and a silver sign (?)
and tell the victory for one (?)

Vietnam, Vietnam

let's pray to settle this war in Vietnam
