Drive on

Johnny Cash

 C
 I got a friend named Whisky Sam
 F
 He was my boonie rat buddy for a year in 'Nam
 G
 He said 'I think my country got a little off track'
 C
 It took him 25 years to welcome me back

 C
 But it's better than not coming back at all
 F
 Many a good man I saw fall
 G
 And even now, a'when I dream
 C
 I hear the men and the monkeys and the jungle scream

chorus
 C
     Drive on, it don't mean nothing
 F
     My children love me but they don't understand
 G
     And I got a woman who knows her man
 C
     Drive on, it don't mean nothing
 G7C
     It don't mean nothing, drive on

I remember one night, Tex and me
Rappled in on a hot LZ
We had our 16's on rock-and-roll
And with all of that fire I was scared and cold

I was crazy, and I was wild
I had seen the tiger smile
I spit in a bamboo viper's face
And I'd be dead but by God's grace

chorus

It was a hard walk in a sad rain
And no one tried to be John Wayne
I came home, but Tex did not
And I can't talk about the hit he got

Now I got a little limp when I walk
And I got a little tremolo when I talk
But the letter read from Whisky Sam
'You're a walkin', talkin' miracle from Vietnam

chorus
