An older veteran speaking to the returning veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan about seeking help for PTSD

Walt Cronin

I say to my brothers much younger than me

There’s no shame in askin for the help that you need

So I say to my brothers the new returnees

That there’s no shame in talkin bout the pain that you feel

Find trust in someone that you can rely

They ain’t been where you been but you still gotta try

To get past that hurtle is a pretty big deal

Bein anxious and sad you don’t want to reveal

You breakdown and cry and it cleanses the soul

Of the things that you did see and the war took it’s toll

So I say to my brothers, the new returnees

There’s no shame in cryin bout the pain that you feel

I say to my brothers much younger than me

There’s no shame in askin for the help that you need

So I say to my brothers the new returnees

That there’s no shame in talkin bout the pain that you feel

Instrumental Break

Find trust in someone that you can rely

They ain’t been where you been but you still gotta try

To get past that hurtle is a pretty big deal

Bein anxious and sad you don’t want to reveal

You breakdown and cry and it cleanses the soul

Of the things that you did see and the war took it’s toll

So I say to my brothers the new returnees

That there’s no shame in cryin bout the pain that you feel

So I say to my brothers the new returnees

That there’s no shame in cryin bout the pain that you feel x

Everyone Else
I'm not a huge fan of this song, but I do think the image of a hired killer weeping like a little school girl is kind of charming. Also, if you really must omit the "g" from the word "crying", at least have the good sense to replace it with an apostrophe.


WARRIORS FOR CHANGE

Walt Cronin's release of California I Gotta Run, his third album, follows 2005's The Gousters and 2008's somewhat redundantly titled Walt Cronin - The Gousters. As with the previous records, California I Gotta Run features a spectrum of Americana/folk influences: Walt proudly emulates the tradition of his heroes such as Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, The Byrds, John Prine, Rodney Crowell Emmy Lou Harris, Jerry Jeff Walker and Steve Earle. As an artist, Walt came into his own at the tender age of 50. A lifetime of experiences (including a stint as a medic during the Vietnam War and a subsequent semi-nomadic life) provide ample inspiration for subject matter in the numerous songs in his repertoire.
