Words and Music by Ned Evett 2016

lyrics

Baby Eileen grew up next to me
Up on Sunrise Rim in the 70s
She was the cutest little baby that the world's ever seen
The greatest generation saved the world for little baby Eileen

Mean Mr. Vogel with his sniper's hand
Poppin off the Nazis as a younger man
He had a look in his eye
One for every demon he'd seen
The greatest generation saved the world for little baby Eileen

Mr. Blackburn got a message from Japan
On the Arizona as a younger man
They ripped a steel wall open
Like a can of sardines
The greatest generation saved the world for little baby Eileen

Paul Jewell played the trumpet best he could
Fighting in Korea for the neighborhood
He raised kids in the boom
Who never looked back where they'd been
The greatest generation saved the world for little baby Eileen

Donald Magnuson could well explain
Everything about a Phantom F4 plane
He kept them up in the air
Dropping bombs on people unseen
The greatest generation saved the world for little baby Eileen

Big Gary Lackey was the last to plan
Fighting for his country in Afghanistan
The foe a former friend once known as the Mujaheddin
The greatest generation saved the world for little baby Eileen
