Mideast Vacation

Neil Young

 GBm
used to watch Highway Patrol whittlin' with my knife
 GBm
but the thought never struck me I'd be black and white for life
 GEm
I was raised on law and order in a community of strife
 DAmCAmCAm
became a restless border and I never took a wife                 
 GBm
I went looking for Khadafi aboard Air Force One
 GBm
but I never did find him and the CIA said son
 GEm
you'll never be a hero, your flying days are done
 DAmCAmCAm
it's time for you to go home now, stop sniffin that smoking gun           

 GBm
I was travellin with my family through the mideast late one night
 GBm
in the hotel all was quite the kids were out like little lights
 GEm
then the street filled with jeeps there was an explosion to the right
 DAmCAmCAm
they chanted "death to America" I was feelin like a fight          

 GBm
So I ran down the stairs and out into the street
 GBm
someone kicked me in the belly someone else kissed my feet
 GEm
I was Rambo in the disco shooting to the beat
 DAmCAmCAm
When they burned me in effigy my vacation was complete
