WWII Veteran Vince Speranza Sings Paratrooper Song “Blood Upon the Risers”

, , ,

Gory, gory what a helluva way to die,
Gory, gory what a helluva way to diel
Gory, gory what a helluva way to die,
He ain’t gonna jump no more

There was blood upon the risers,
there was brains upon his chute
Intestines were a-dangling
from his paratrooper suit
They poured him from his helmet,
and they poured him form his boots
And he ain’t gonna jump no more.

Gory, gory what a helluva way to die,
Gory, gory what a helluva way to die,
Gory, gory what a helluva way to die,
He ain’t gonna jump no more.

Now the letter they sent home,
to his wife and baby son.
Madam we regret to say,
your troopers life is done.
But hold your head up high,
his name is written in the sky!
He ain’t gonna jump no more!

Gory, gory what a helluva way to die,
Gory, gory what a helluva way to die,
Gory, gory what a helluva way to die,
He ain’t gonna jump no more.

Now the baby son grew up and said,
“A troopers life for me!”
A jumper like my daddy was,
is all I want to be.
I only hope that I can jump
just half as good as he!
He ain’t gonna jump no more!

Gory, gory what a helluva way to die,
Gory, gory what a helluva way to die,
Gory, gory what a helluva way to die,
He ain’t gonna jump no more.

Now they sent him to Afghanistan
and then into Iraq!
The bullet then came speeding up,
and deep into his back.
He hit the ground but his grenade
found enemy on track!
He ain’t gonna jump no more!

Gory, gory what a helluva way to die,
Gory, gory what a helluva way to die,
Gory, gory what a helluva way to die,
He ain’t gonna jump no more.
