my lyricsbox
I was a PFC on a search patrol huntin' Charlie down
It was in the jungle wars of '65
My weapon jammed and I got stuck way out and all alone
And I could hear the enemy movin' in close outside

Just then I heard a twig snap and I grabbed my empty gun
And I dug in scared while I counted down my fate
And then a big marine with a pair of friendly eyes
Appeared there at my shoulder and said wait

If Charlie wants to tangle now he'll have two to dodge
I said "Well thanks a lot."
I told him my name and asked him his
And he said "The boys just call me Camouflage."

Whoa Camouflage
Things are never quite the way they seem
Whoa Camouflage
I was awfully glad to see this big marine

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

And it was near the river bank when the ambush came
And I thought it was the end and we were had
Then a bullet with my name on it came buzzin' through a bush
And the big marine he just swatted it with his hand
Just like it was a fly

Whoa Camouflage
Things are never quite the way they seem
Whoa Camouflage
I was awfully glad to see this big marine

When he led me out of danger I saw my camp and waved goodbye
He just winked at me from the jungle and was gone
And when I got back to my HQ I told 'em about my night
And the battle I'd spent with a big marine named Camouflage

When I said his name a soldier gulped and a medic took my arm
And led me to a green tent on the right
He said "You may be tellin' the truth boy but this here is Camouflage
And he's been right here since he passed away last night."

But before he went he said "Semper Fi" and said his only wish
Was to save a young marine caught in a mirage
So here take his dog tag son
I know he'd want you to have it now

Whoa Camouflage
Things are never quite the way they seem
Whoa Camouflage
I was awfully glad to see this big marine

Whoa Camouflage
Things are never quite the way they seem
Whoa Camouflage
This was an awfully big Marine

Whoa Camouflage
Things are never quite the way they seem
Whoa Camouflage
This was an awfully big Marine
This song is from the album "The Last Stand".
