Whitey’s Song (Charlie Would Make Us Proud)
Roy Hurd

When Poncho joined the Navy
He served his country well
Charlie began to sing
All the songs that Poncho wrote
Down along the boardwalk
By the Jersey shore
Charlie (Chuckey) Plumadore
Would make us proud

Green Mountain Boys how they could sing
Those memories still haunt me
The tears they will bring
When Poncho was away
Charlie would fill his shoes
This Adirondack singer
In a special kind of way

Now Charlie was our hero
A special kind of man
We almost lost him
Over in Viet Nam
Although his days are over
We’ll always see his name
A name carved in the wall

Repeat Chorus:
