Big Time in the Jungle  Old Crow Medicine Show

D......................................C...G
Down in Eutaw, Alabama in 1965
D.......................................C......................G
A young man Ďbout 21, no different than you or I
Am............................................D
Heís catchiní catfish, and gettiní drunk
Am................................................D
But Uncle Sam called, he called him up
D..............................G
Sent him out to Vietnam
[Am]That young man
[D]Got his life turned upside down
Turned his smile into a frown
Robbed that king of his crown
....................................................G
For an ideal he didnít even know about
D...........................................................C.......................G
He was gambliní at the wagon when that army man showed up
[D]And he flashed that pen and paper
..............C...................G
And olí Flukie he signed up
Am...............................................D
Thereís gonna be a big time in the jungle
[Am]Gonna be a firefight
.........................D
Gonna be a rumble
.............................G
Send me out to Vietnam
[Am]Iíll fight ten men
[D]I got nothiní left in the States for me
I wanna see the world you see
I know that Uncle Sam needs me
.....................................................G
To fight for an ideal I know nothing about
Instrumental
(Same as Verse Chords)
D.......................................................C ..................G
Oh the drop point was dusty and the drill sergeant was loud
D............................................................C.............G
And he could not see the corpses for the raginí dust cloud
Am......................................................D
Grab your duffle bags, head to the checkpoint
Am ...........................................................D
Welcome to Vietnam, boys, youíre in for a hell of a fight
.......................................G
Take it from the ones who know
[Am]The army moves slow
[D]Hurry up and wait, donít sleep late
And learn to hate your brother
................................G
Before you hate your foe
D ....................................................C.................G
On patrol out in the rice fields, them choppers flew low
D..............................................C....................G
Glancing for the hand signal to tell you where to go
[Am]Then the bombs started falliní
[D]And they pounded his brain
And he thought about Eutaw and who was to blame
..................................G
For sendiní him to Vietnam
