 I Have  Finally Won
My days, months and years have quickly passed.
I've climbed the highest mountains, swam the
 deepest oceans.
I have seen the best and worst in men.
I've looked the Vietnam tiger in the eye,
and seen young men bleed and die,
and after all these years,  still ask myself why?
Now that I walk in the shadow of death,
I fear not, for He walks with me.
This time comes to every man,
no matter what he has to say.
Life is not his to play.
I no longer have to run, for I'll soon
be in the House of the Rising Sun,
so, you see…
I have finally won!
