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.
