> this is the lyrics:

> He was just a rookie trooper and he surely shook with fright.
> He checked off his equipment and made sure his pack was tight.
> He had to sit and listen to those awful engines roar.
> You ain't gonna jump no more.

> Chorus:
> Gory, gory, what a hell of way to die.
> Gory, gory, what a hell of way to die.
> Gory, gory, what a hell of way to die.
> He ain't gonna jump no more.

> "Is everybody happy?" cried the sergeant looking up.
> Our hero feebly answered, "Yes", and then they stood him up.
> He jumped into the icy blast, his static line unhooked.
> And he ain't gonna jump no more.

> He counted long, he counted loud, he waited for the shock.
> He felt the wind, he felt the cold, he felt the awful drop.
> The silk from his reserve spilled out and wrapped around his legs.
> And he ain't gonna jump no more.

> The risers swung around his neck, connectors cracked his dome.
> Suspension lines were tied in knots around his skinny bones.
> The canopy became his shroud, he hurtled to the ground.
> And he ain't gonna jump no more.

> The days he lived and loved and laughed kept running through his mind.
> He thought about the girl back home, the one he left behind.
> He thought about the medicos and wondered what they'd find.
> And he ain't gonna jump no more.

> The ambulance was on the spot, the jeeps were running wild.
> The medics jumped and screamed with glee, rolled up their sleeves and
> smiled.
> For it had been a week or more since last a 'chute had failed.
> And he ain't gonna jump no more.

> He hit the ground, the sound was "Splat," his blood went
> spurting high.
> His comrades they were heard to say, "A helluva way to die."
> He lay there rolling 'round in the welter of his gore.
> And he ain't gonna jump no more.

> There was blood upon the risers, there were brains upon the 'chute.
> Intestines were a-dangling from his paratrooper suit.
> He was a mess, they picked him up and poured him from his boots.
> And he ain't gonna jump no more.

> you should be able to D/L the song at this site

Sorry my friend but you got this wrong..."Gory" isn't the name of the paratrooper. "Gory" actually means "bloody", so it refers to a bloody death!
And for the people that are still asking for a version of this song in MP3 format, you can download it from here:
You can also find the lyrics there)
The adress has already been posted before, and I thank verry much to that person!
