Drive On

   E                               E7
1. 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
            E                    B7              E
   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 

R: Drive on, it don't mean nothin'
          B7                     E
   My children love me, but they don't understand
       A                 E
   And I got a woman who knows her man
                                 B7    E
   Drive on, don't mean nothin', drive on

2. I remember one night, Tex and me
   Rappelled in on a hot L.Z.
   We had our M16's on rock and roll
   But, with all that fire, I 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

R: Drive on...

3. 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

R: Drive on...
