Lyrics Camouflage

I was a PFC on a search patrol huntin' Charlie down
It was in the jungle wars of sixty-five
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
A giant with a pair of friendly eyes
Appeared there at my shoulder and said wait
When he came in close beside me he said
Don't worry son I'm here
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
Woah oh oh oh
Camouflage
Things are never quite the way they seem
Woah oh oh oh
Camouflage
I was awfully glad to see this big Marine
Well I was gonna ask him where he came from when we heard the bullets fly
Comin' through the brush and all around our ears
It was then I saw this big Marine light a fire in his eye
And it was strange but suddenly
I forgot my fears
Well we fought all night side by side
We took our battle stance
And I wondered how the bullets missed this man
'Cos they seemed to go right through him just 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 on top of us
And I'd thought it was the end and we were had
Then a bullet with my name on it came buzzin' through a bush
And that big Marine just swatted it with his hand just like it was a fly
Woah oh oh oh
Camouflage
Things are never quite the way they seem
Woah oh oh oh
Camouflage
This was an awfully strange Marine
And I knew there was something weird about him 'cos when I turned around he was pullin' a big palm tree
Right up out of the ground and swattin' those Charlies with it from here to Kingdom Come
When he led me out of danger
I saw my camp and waved goodbye
He just winked at me from the jungle and then 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
In fact he's been here all week long
But before he went he said Semper Fi and said his only wish
Was to save a young Marine caught in a barrage
So here take his dog tag son
I know he'd want you to have it now
And we both said a prayer for a big Marine named Camouflage
Woah oh oh oh
Camouflage
Things are never quite the way they seem
Woah oh oh oh
Camouflage
This was an awfully big Marine
So next time you're in a jungle fight and you feel the presence near
Or hear a voice that in your mind will lie
Just be thankful that you're not alone and you got some company
From a big Marine the boys called Camouflage
Woah oh oh oh
Camouflage
Things are never quite the way they seem
Woah oh oh oh
Camouflage
This was an awfully big Marine
Woah oh oh oh
Camouflage
Things are never quite the way they seem
Woah oh oh oh
Camouflage
This was an awfully big Marine
Oh oh Camouflage
Oh oh Camouflage
Oh oh Camouflage
Oh oh Camouflage
Oh oh Camouflage
Oh oh Camouflage
Oh oh Camouflage
Oh oh Camouflage
