Down in Eutaw, Alabama, In 1965
A young man bout 21, no different than you or I
He's catchin catfish, and gettin' drunk
But Uncle Sam called, he called him up
Send him out to Vietnam
That young man
Got his life turned upside down,
Turned his smile into a frown
Robbed that king of his crown
For an idea he didnt even know about

He was gamblin' at the wagon, when that army man showed up
And he flashed that pen and paper, and Old Flukey, he signed up
There's gonna be a big time, in the jungle
Gonna be a fire fight, gonna be a rumble
Send me out to Vietnam
I'll fight ten men
I got nothin' left in the States for me
I just want to see the world you see
I know that Uncle Sam needs me
To fight for an idea I know nothin' about

Oh, the drop point it was dusty and the drill seargent was loud
And he could not see the corpses for the raging dust cloud
Grab your duffel bags, headin' to the check point
Welcome to Vietnam boys, you're in for a hell of a fight
Take it from the ones who know
The army moves slow
Hurry up and wait
Don't sleep late
Learn to hate your brother, before you hate your foe

On patrol out in the rice fields, them choppers flew low
Glancin up for the hand signal, to tell you where to go
Then the bombs started fallin', and they pounded his brain
And he thought about Eutaw, and who was to blame
We're sendin' him to Vietnam
anyone heard of them?
