Last Chopper Out of Saigon (R acoustic)

Credits: 
Roger McNamee

We saw it coming from a thousand miles, with every hour it grew
An epic storm marking time, that crawled before it flew
We shared a meal, just you and me, telling stories naturally
Making light of danger we both could see

When signs turned into warnings, I made my getaway
You stayed behind, faking brave, as blue skies turned to gray
Then the sky came crashing down,
The oceans rose from underground
I was feeling safe but all alone on the last chopper out of Saigon

I was among the lucky ones who made it out that day
Hitched a ride on Noah's Ark, I never thought to stay
As the city disappeared below, creeping dread began to grow
For friends I'd left behind in my rush to go

When signs turned into warnings, I made my getaway
You stayed behind, faking brave, as blue skies turned to gray
Then the sky came crashing down,
The oceans rose from underground
I was feeling safe but all alone on the last chopper out of Saigon

Bridge
Will I get another chance
To prove myself to you
Prove myself to you

The storm ripped through your city ... homes and lives destroyed
Neighborhoods were blown away as if by an asteroid
I waited for some word from you; I held my breath till I turned blue
When the good news came, I sighed and finally knew

When signs turn into warnings, next time I will not run
We'll stay or go together, we'll face our fate as one
When the sky comes crashing down
The oceans rise from underground
We'll all be on or no one's goin' on the last chopper out of Saigon

Written about our experience during Hurricane Sandy, where we played a gig at Brooklyn Bowl the day the storm began. The band and crew managed to get out of town before the storm hit, but the poster artists and a few crew members stayed behind and weathered the storm.
