Camouflage                 CAPO 5 


       Am          C              D                F
I was a p.f.c. on a search patrol, huntin' Charlie down
Am                   G         Am
It was in the jungle wars of '65
    Am               C           D                F
My weapon jammed and I got stuck way out and all alone
            Am          G                    Am
And I could hear the enemy movin' in close outside
  
    C              G               Dm               Am
Just then I heard a twig snap and I grabbed my empty gun
       C                       Em            Am
And I dug in scared while I counted down my fate
            C              G            Dm               Am
And then a big marine, a giant, with a pair of friendly eyes
   C                   Em               Am
Appeared there at my shoulder and said wait.

         Am                  C                         D        F
When he came in close beside me, he said don't worry, son, I'm here
Am                            G                   Am
If Charlie wants to tangle now, he'll have two to dodge
Am                    C                     D                F
I said, well, thanks a lot! I told him my name and asked him his
Am                   G         Am
And he said the boys just call me camouflage


CHORUS:
Am    C    D          F
Woah-oh-oh-oh, camouflage
Am                G                   Am
Things are never quite the way they seem
Am    C    D          F
Woah-oh-oh-oh, camouflage
      Am                G            Am
I was awfully glad to see this big marine


        Am          C              D                F
Well, I was gonna ask him where he came from, when we heard the bullets fly
Am                   G         Am
Comin' through the brush, and all around our ears
        Am          C              D                F
It was then I saw this big Marine light a fire in his eye
Am                   G         Am
And it was strange, but suddenly, I forgot my fears


C              G               Dm               Am
Well, we fought all night, side by side, we took our battle stance
           C                       Em            Am
And I wondered how the bullets missed this man
C              G               Dm               Am
'Cause they seemed to go right through him just as if he wasn't there
           C                       Em            Am
And in the mornin' we both took a chance and ran

        Am          C              D                F
And it was near the riverbank when the ambush came on top of us
Am                   G               Am
And I thought it was the end, and we were had
        Am          C              D                F
Then a bullet with my name on it came buzzin' through a bush
Am                   G                   Am
And that big Marine, he just swat it with his hand

F        Am                G                   Am
Just like it was a fly...


Chorus:

Am    C    D          F
Woah-oh-oh-oh, Camouflage
Am                G                   Am
Things are never quite the way they seem
Am    C    D          F
Woah-oh-oh-oh, Camouflage
Am                G                   Am
This was an awfully strange (big) Marine


{spoken}
      Am                          C      
And I knew there was somethin' weird about him,
      D                    F
'Cause when I turned around,
Am                     G                         Am
He was pullin' a big palm tree up outta the ground
  Am          C              D                F
And swattin' those Charlies with it from here to kingdom come
Am                     G                         Am


        Am          C              D                F
When he led me outta danger I saw my camp and waved goodbye
Am                     G                         Am
He just winked at me from the jungle and then was gone
        Am          C              D                F
When I got back to my H.Q., I told 'em about my night
Am                               G                  Am
And the battle I'd spent with a big Marine named Camouflage

C              G               Dm               Am
When I said his name, the soldier gulped, and a medic took my arm
C                       Em            Am
And led me to a green tent on the right
C                            G               Dm               Am
He said "You may be tellin' true, boy, but this here is Camouflage
C                              Em            Am
And he's been right here since he passed away last night
C                              Em            Am
In fact, he's been here all week long...

Am          C              D                F
But before he went, he said Semper Fi, and said his only wish
Am                   G         Am
Was to save a young Marine caught in a barrage
Am            C                 D                F 
So here, take his dog tag, son, I know he'd want you to have it now"
Am                            G               Am
And we both said a prayer for a big Marine named Camouflage


Chorus repeat 

        Am          C              D                F
So next time you're in a jungle fight, and you feel a presence near
Am                   G         Am
Or hear a voice that in your mind will lodge
        Am          C              D                F
Just be thankful that you're not alone you've got some company
Am                   G         Am
From a big Marine the boys call Camouflage


Chorus repeat x2
