Ballad of Balad  Toby Keith

Into D
[D]I quit school in the 10th grade and g[G]rew out my hair[D]
Got me a job doin’ lawn[E]mower repair[A]
I me[D]t an army recruiter down at the W[D7]inn Dixie[G]
He said s[D]on you’ve no future pack up [A]and go with [D]me
[D]First place we landed was a base[G] called Balad [D]
They conveyed our asses to a 10 acr[E]e F.O.B.[A]
[D]With my boots and my cover and an[D7] old m16[G]
[D]Two bottles of water and a [A]cold M[D].R.E.
O you’ll [G]meet lots of new friends and your [D]sure to get pa[G]id
We’ll sho[D]w you the world and we’ll teac[E]h you a trade[A]
It’s not a job, i[G]t’s an adventure, Oh yes sir I g[D]ot that[G]
Ah but yo[D]u never told me I’d get my ass [A]shot at[D]
You never told me I’d get my ass sh[A]ot at[D]
First night in combat we went out on patrol
They ambushed our convoy and we chased the a*****e
We found them all hidin’ in low water ditches
We took aim and killed all them son of a b***hes
Walked in on my buddy with a female M.P.
The ugliest woman you ever did see
He said why are you laughin’ you’ve got lots of nerve
Over here in the dessert we grade on a curve
Repeat last line
