No Shame in Cryin'

Walt Cronin
Language: English



I'm trying to bring attention to the plight of the
returning veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan. PTSD & suicide rates are epidemic. Please listen to my song: "No Shame In Cryin." I'm trying to get anyone to listen to this and play it for our returning troops no matter what your political beliefs. The song is about an older veteran (I'm a Vietnam medic vet) talking to the younger guys just returning to get the help they need. My songs are free and down loadable on various web sites through CD title: Walt Cronin - California I Gotta Run
Peace On Earth ( it's not a seasonal thing )

I say to my brothers much younger than me
There’s no shame in askin' for the help that you need
So I say to my brothers the new returnees
That there’s no shame in talkin' bout the pain that you feel
Find trust in someone that you can rely
They ain’t been where you been but you still gotta try

To get past that hurtle is a pretty big deal
Bein anxious and sad you don’t want to reveal
You breakdown and cry and it cleanses the soul
Of the things that you did see and the war took it’s toll
So I say to my brothers, the new returnees
There’s no shame in cryin' bout the pain that you feel
I say to my brothers much younger than me
There’s no shame in askin' for the help that you need
So I say to my brothers the new returnees
That there’s no shame in talkin' 'bout the pain that you feel

Find trust in someone that you can rely
They ain’t been where you been but you still gotta try
To get past that hurtle is a pretty big deal
Bein anxious and sad you don’t want to reveal
You breakdown and cry and it cleanses the soul
Of the things that you did see and the war took its toll
So I say to my brothers the new returnees
That there’s no shame in cryin' bout the pain that you feel
So I say to my brothers the new returnees
That there’s no shame in cryin' 'bout the pain that you feel
