[G] [Bm] [G] [Bm]  
I [G]used to watch Highway Patrol [Bm]whittlin' with my knife
but the [G]thought never struck me I'd be [Bm]black and white for life
I was [G]raised on law and order in a co[Em]mmunity of strife
be[D]came a restless border and I [Am]never took a wife[C] [Am] [C] [Am]
I went [G]looking for Khadafi [Bm]aboard Air Force One
but I [G]never did find him and the [Bm]CIA said son
you'll [G]never be a hero, your [Em]flying days are done
it's [D]time for you to go home now, stop snif[Am]fin that smoking gun[C] [Am] [C] [Am]
I was [G]travellin with my family through [Bm]the mideast late one night
in the [G]hotel all was quite the kids [Bm]were out like little lights
then the [G]street filled with jeeps there was an exp[Em]losion to the right
they [D]chanted "death to America" I was [Am]feelin like a fight[C] [Am] [C] [Am]
So I [G]ran down the stairs and [Bm]out into the street
someone [G]kicked me in the belly [Bm]someone else kissed my feet
I was [G]Rambo in the disco [Em]shooting to the beat
When [D]they burned me in effigy my va[Am]cation was complete[C] [Am] [C] [Am]
