Johnny Cash - Drive On Lyrics




Send Drive On Ringtone to your Cell

Well I got a friend named Whiskey Sam
He was my boonierat buddy for a year in Nam
He said "I think my country just 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 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
