Lyrics

Well, I got a friend named whiskey sam
He was my boonierat buddy for a year in nam
He said I think my country got a little off track
Took 'em twenty-five years to welcome me back
But it's better than not coming back at all
Many a good man I saw fall
And even now, every time I dream I hear the men
And the monkeys in the jungle scream

Drive on
It don't mean nothin'
My children love me, but they don't understand
And I got a woman who knows her man, drive on
It don't mean nothin', it don't mean nothin'
Drive on

Well, I remember one night
Tex and me rappelled in on a hot l.z
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
And I have seen the tiger smile
I spit in a bamboo viper's face
And I'd be dead, but by god's grace

Drive on
It don't mean nothin'
My children love me, but they don't understand
And I got a woman who knows her man, drive on
It don't mean nothin', it don't mean nothin'
Drive on

It was a slow walk in a sad rain
And nobody tried to be john wayne
I came home, but tex did not
And I can't talk about the hit he got
But I got a little limp now when I walk
And I got a little tremolo when I talk
But my letter read from whiskey sam
You're a walkin' talkin' miracle from vietnam

Drive on
It don't mean nothin'
My children love me, but they don't understand
And I got a woman who knows her man , drive on
It don't mean nothin', it don't mean nothin'
Drive on
