Tim Buckley -- Once I Was

Have you ever remembered a line or melody from a song that you loved, but can't quite recall the name of the song or the artist. This winsome tune about the expendability of the male of the species was like that for me. For about 20 years, I strained my memory and spent many hours on the web guessing at key words to google [for the past 10years] all to no avail. Then a few months ago I ordered a documentary from Netflix that I had viewed when it came out in 1988. The documentary was produced by HBO and was called Dear America, Letters Home From Vietnam. Of all the Vietnam docs, this one in my opinion is the best one. Well anyway, this Tim Buckley tune was part of the soundtrack and was likely where I had first heard it.
