Old Crow Medicine Show - Big Time In The Jungle Lyrics

Down in Eutaw, Alabama in 1965
A young man Ďbout 21, no different than you or I
Heís catchiní catfish, and gettiní drunk
But Uncle Sam called, he called him up
Sent 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 ideal he didnít even know about

He was gambliní at the wagon when that army man showed up
And he flashed that pen and paper
And olí Flukie he signed up
Thereís gonna be a big time in the jungle
Gonna be a firefight
Gonna be a rumble
Send me out to Vietnam
Iíll fight ten men
I got nothiní left in the States for me
I wanna see the world you see
I know that Uncle Sam needs me
To fight for an ideal I know nothing about

Oh the drop point was dusty and the drill sergeant was loud
And he could not see the corpses for the raginí dust cloud
Grab your duffle bags, head to the checkpoint
Welcome to Vietnam, boys, youíre in for a hell of a fight
Take it from the ones who know
The army moves slow
Hurry up and wait, donít sleep late
And learn to hate your brother
Before you hate your foe

On patrol out in the rice fields, them choppers flew low
Glancing for the hand signal to tell you where to go
Then the bombs started falliní
And they pounded his brain
And he thought about Eutaw and who was to blame
For sendiní him to Vietnam

[Thanks to Cathy for lyrics]
