g.i._blues

The title is from the Elvis film of the same name: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0053848/

Both my arms and legs
are torn to shreds
my eyes are tired and grey
I've lost a stone
I'm just skin and bone
and when I come home today
look away……look away
turn your eyes to the children
I don't want you to see me this way
because I'm all twisted and broken
I've started drinking
and chain smoking
and I don't speak anymore
unless I'm spoken to
I'M A G.I. AND I'M BLUE

Look away….look away
turn your eyes to the children
I don't want you to see me this way

Look away John F Kennedy
Look away Franklin D Roosevelt
Look away George Washington
Thomas Jefferson and Brother Jonathon
Look away Bob Hope
Look away Uncle Sam
Look away Ronald Reagan
Look away Dixieland

Oh God I wish I was in Dixie
In Dixie with you
I'M A G.I. AND I'M BLUE
