[Intro]

E E Em E E Em E

[Verse 1]

E                               
I got a friend named Whiskey Sam
 A                               
He was my boonierat buddy for a year in Nam
    B7                                       
He said is my country just a little off track
E                             B7         E
Took 'em twenty-five years to welcome me back

[Verse 2]

E                                         
But, it's better than not comin' back at all
A                         
Many a good men I saw fall
B7                    
And even now, every time I dream
E                                     B7      E
I hear the men and the monkeys in the jungle scream

[Chorus]

E                           
Drive on, it don't mean nothin'
B7                             E
My children love me, but they don't understand
A                        E
And I got a woman who knows her man, Drive on
E                      B7     E
It don't mean nothin', drive on

[Verse 3]
E                 
I remember one night, Tex and me
A                 
Rappelled in on a hot L.Z.
B7 
We had our 16's on rock and roll
E                            B7         E
But with all that fire, was scared and cold

[Verse 4]
E
I was crazy and I was wild
A
And I have seen the tiger smile
B7
I spit in a bamboo viper's face
E                         B7         E
And I'd be dead, but by God's grace, Drive on, 

[Chorus]
E
It don't mean nothin'
B7                        E 
My children love me, but they don't understand
A                     E
And I got a woman who knows her man, Drive on
E                                              B7   E
It don't mean nothin', it don't mean nothin', drive on

[Verse 5]
E
It was a slow walk in a sad rain
A
And nobody tried to be John Wayne
B7
I came home, Tex did not
E                          B7      E
And I can't talk about the hit he got

[Verse 6]
E    
Well, I got a little limp now when I walk
 A                 
and I Got a little tremolo when I talk
B7
But I finally found out who I am
E                                  B7   E 
I'm a walkin' talkin' miracle from Vietnam, Drive on, 

[Chorus]
E
It don't mean nothin'
B7                        E
My children love me, but they don't understand
A                      E
And I got a woman who knows her man, Drive on
E                                             B7     E
It don't mean nothin', it don't mean nothin', drive on
