Veteran’s Day Poppy lyrics

[alert_box type=”info”]Originally appeared on Trout Mask Replica[/alert_box]

I cry but I can’t buy
Your Veteran’s Day poppy
It don’t get me high
It can only make me cry
It can never grow another
Son like the one who warmed me my days
After rain amd warmed my breath
My life’s blood
Screamin’ empty she cries
It don’t get me high
It can only make me cry
Your Veteran’s Day poppy

(1969)
