"Drive On"

I got a friend named Whiskey Sam

He was my boonierat buddy for a year in Nam

He said is my country just a little off track

Took 'em twenty-five years to welcome me back

But, it's better than not coming back at all

Many a good man

I saw fall And even now,

every time I dream I hear the men

and the monkeys in the jungle scream



Drive on, don't mean nothin'

My children love me , but they don't understand

And I got a woman who knows her man

Drive on, don't mean nothin', drive on



I remember one night,

Tex and me Rappelled in on a hot L.Z.

We had our 16's on rock and roll

But, with all that fire,

was scared and cold

We were crazy, we were wild

And I have seen the tiger smile

I spit in a bamboo viper's face

And I'd be dead , but by God's grace



Drive on, don't mean nothin'

My children love me, but they don't understand

And I got a woman who knows her man

Drive on, don't mean nothin', drive on



It was a real slow walk in a real sad rain

And nobody tried to be John Wayne

I came home, but Tex did not

And I can't talk about the hit he got

I got a little limp now when

I walk Got a little tremolo when

I talk But my letter read from Whiskey Sam

You're a walkin' talkin' miracle from Vietnam



Drive on, don't mean nothin'

My children love me, but they don't understand

And I got a woman who knows her man

Drive on, don't mean nothin', drive on
