♫ Inch by inch and mile by mile
Such a little country seems hardly worthwhile

Tell me, soldier, why do you roam
Why don't you stay right here at home
I'm gonna fight for my uncle sam
because there's trouble in south vietnam

Inch by inch and mile by mile
Such a little country seems hardly worthwhile

Come listen, good people, so free and so brave
There's a danger a-comin' and it plans to enslave
It has captured one billion with deception and lies
And raised an iron curtain that muffles their cries

Inch by inch and mile by mile
Such a little country seems hardly worthwhile

No soldier wants war, they know it is hell
But the enemy we face, like a cancerous cell
Countries they've taken, one by one
Now we're gonna fight, we're not gonna run

Inch by inch and mile by mile
Such a little country seems hardly worthwhile

I sing out for freedom with all of my heart
My song of freedom is a very small part
I'll fight for life and liberty
And rise up a newborn babe to be free

Inch by inch and mile by mile
Such a little country... Yes it's worthwhile
Yes it's worthwhile ♫

As I sang out Janet Greene's haunting lamentation in the streets of Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), locals were taken in by my song of freedom. Even a figure of authority was captivated by my singing.

The 1976 outcome of the Vietnam War may be overturned in due time.
