Emotional song about a casualty of war.


Stonewall "Stoneman" Towery wrote, produced and performed everything on this recording.


The idea for this song came about during an emotional PTSD therapy session I recently had at the Veterans Mental Health department. I was told to write a letter to the little boy that I had found dead from a land mine over 50 years ago. The image of his remains has haunted me all these years. So I wrote this song in order to honor and respect the memory of the little Torso boy.

Poor little torso boy laying on the ground with no legs and bloody, a land mine had blown his life away.
Poor little torso boy laying on the ground with no legs and bloody. I can’t stop seeing his face.

A long time ago when I was in Vietnam. We went on a mission to confirm a strike. When got to the village, the sergeant told me to check the perimeter and there I saw worst scene of my life.

Poor little torso boy laying on the ground with no legs and bloody a land mine had blown his life away.
Poor little torso boy laying on the ground with no legs and bloody. I can’t stop seeing his face.
Poor little torso boy laying on the ground with no legs and bloody. I can’t stop seeing his face.
i started to cry because little boy couldn’t have been older than seven. I reached down and confirmed that he was dead. I covered him up and said a prayer that he would make it to heaven and then I stood up and walked away

Poor little torso boy laying on the ground with no legs and bloody a land mine had blown his life away.
Poor little torso boy laying on the ground with no legs and bloody. I can’t stop seeing his face.
Poor little torso boy laying on the ground with no legs and bloody. I can’t stop seeing his face.
Poor little torso boy laying on the ground with no legs and bloody. I can’t stop seeing his face.

I can’t stop seeing his face, I can’t stop seeing his face!
