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

     [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
     It don't mean nothing, [G7]drive [C]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


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
