Drive On (Alt) (Cash Johnny)

I got a friend named Whiskey Sam He was my boonierat buddy for a year in Nam He said is my country got 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, it don't mean nothin' My children love me , and they understand And I got a woman who knows her man Drive on, don't mean nothin', it don't mean nothin', drive on I remember one night, Tex and me Walked right up on 2 V.C. We had our 16's on rock and roll And, we separated them from their souls I was crazy, I was 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, it 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', it don't mean nothin', drive on Well, a mortar fell 20 feet away And I carry shrapnel, to this day 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, I finally found out who I am, I'm a walkin' talkin' miracle from Vietnam Drive on, it 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', it don't mean nothin', drive on
