Big Time in the Jungle
Album: O.C.M.S.

D......................................C...G 
Down in Eutaw, Alabama in 1965 
D.......................................C......................G 
A young man Ďbout 21, no different than you or I 
Am............................................D 
Heís catchiní catfish, and gettiní drunk 
Am................................................D 
But Uncle Sam called, he called him up 
D..............................G 
Sent him out to Vietnam 
Am 
That young man 
D 
Got his life turned upside down 
Turned his smile into a frown 
Robbed that king of his crown 
....................................................G 
For an ideal he didnít even know about 
D...........................................................C.......................G 
He was gambliní at the wagon when that army man showed up 
D 
And he flashed that pen and paper 
..............C...................G 
And olí Flukie he signed up 
Am...............................................D 
Thereís gonna be a big time in the jungle 
Am 
Gonna be a firefight 
.........................D 
Gonna be a rumble 
.............................G 
Send me out to Vietnam 
Am 
Iíll fight ten men 
D 
I got nothiní left in the States for me 
I wanna see the world you see 
I know that Uncle Sam needs me 
.....................................................G 
To fight for an ideal I know nothing about 

Instrumental 
(Same as Verse Chords) 

D.......................................................C ..................G 
Oh the drop point was dusty and the drill sergeant was loud 
D............................................................C.............G 
And he could not see the corpses for the raginí dust cloud 
Am......................................................D 
Grab your duffle bags, head to the checkpoint 
Am ...........................................................D 
Welcome to Vietnam, boys, youíre in for a hell of a fight 
.......................................G 
Take it from the ones who know 
Am 
The army moves slow 
D 
Hurry up and wait, donít sleep late 
And learn to hate your brother 
................................G 
Before you hate your foe 

D ....................................................C.................G 
On patrol out in the rice fields, them choppers flew low 
D..............................................C....................G 
Glancing for the hand signal to tell you where to go 
Am 
Then the bombs started falliní 
D 
And they pounded his brain 
And he thought about Eutaw and who was to blame 
..................................G 
For sendiní him to Vietnam
