Sam and I

 



 

“Sam And I”

 


 


 

I joined the Army in ’83.

 

To see the sights, they were telling me!

 

I hopped a flight from my home state.

 

Stood there guarding a  back gate.

 

Late one night, at the gate!

 

A car approaching, it was really - late!

 

My friend jumps out with orders in hand,

 

Screaming and shouting, man-o-man!

 

The orders called in it’s time to roll,

 

To a Texas town called San Anton.

 

The music is hot, the girls are too!

 

The beer is great, so is the food.

 

I bought a car from some old man.

 

Met a girl, will call Sam!

 

She stood so high, thin as a pole.

 

 When she spoke my Heart felt old.
