Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

G I Joe  Waylon Jennings

      [G]  Well he smoked those Camel cigarettes [C/G]about three packs a d[G]ay
        Nicotine stains on his fingers when he'd[D] stretch them out to play
        Th[G]at old "Midnight special" is [C/G]one he loved to d[G]o
        Then he'd sing "I'm walking[D] the floor over y[G]ou"

Verse 2:
      [G]  TV preachers and welfare checks for [C/G]him just had no pl[G]ace
        But he'd take his time to tune real good when h[D]e sang "Amazing grace"
        He'd say[G] boys i'm old and crazy but[C/G] i still give a d[G]amn
        And i still think the boys got screwed[D] over in Vietn[G]am

        He'd d[C/G]rag out that old [G]uniform
        And say[D] "they used to call me sl[G]im"
        He n[C/G]ever could get it b[G]uttoned up
        But the pride looked good on h[D]im
        He[G] still feels the way he felt
        Over [C/G]forty years ag[G]o
        Here's to the old man [D]
        Here's to G.I. J[G]oe

Verse 3:
      [G]  He only sang the old songs,he's [C/G]standing still in t[G]ime
        "My Phillipino baby",r[D]ight there on his m[G]ind
        Then he'd talk about the big one,the[C/G] war we didn't l[G]ose
        He'd pick a little bit like Travis[D] "Re-Enlistment bl[G]ues"


      [G]  Here's to my old man [D]
        And all the G.I. J[G]oe's
