My Benevolent One

One dark night, thirty years ago,
You took off from Tan Son Nhat Airport
You bore countless human beings -- your destiny
I was a lonely boy hailed from the war-torn Vietnam
You delivered me to the arms of Miss Liberty
I embraced my new home away from home, Camp Pendleton
The billboard stood tall, "Freedom Is Not Free"
Oh, my benevolent C-130
You are the Mother I never had -- your priceless love for me...
