Get On Back Home

I don't know why I left But I must've done wrong And it won't be long 'Till I get on back home Got a letter in the mail Go to war or go to jail
Sat me in that barber's chair Spun me around, I had no hair
Used to drive a Cadillac Now I pack it on my back
Used to drive a limousine Now I'm wearing Army green
Dress it right and cover down Forty inches all around
Nine to the front and six to the rear That's the way we do it here
Used to date a beauty queen Now I date my M-16
Ain't no use in lookin' down Ain't no discharge on the ground
Ain't no use in going back Jody's got your Cadillac
Ain't no use in calling home Jody's got your girl and gone
Ain't no use in feeling blue Jody's got your sister too
Took away my faded jeans Now I'm wearing Army greens
They took away my gin and rum Now I'm up before the sun
Mama Mama can't you see What this Army's done for me
Mama Mama can't you see This Army life is killing me.
