Lyrics

Some folks are born, made to wave the flag
Ooo, their red, white and blue
And when the band plays "Hail to the Chief"
Ooo, they point the cannon at you, Lord

Love this one all time favorite ! F..k the government
Over 40 years later and we still haven't learn the message behind this song. Why should we fight for a government who doesn't represent us and yet tax us (i.e. Obama Care and allowing states to take away uor 2nd amendment rights and so on ... )
Amazing
This song about politicians and the Rich not sending their kids to emlist

This is in every Vietnam war movie Forrest Gump etc. awesome song
'Nam flashbacks. ..
Not an anti-war song. It is a anti-elitist song.
@ Pokereyes345 : So your in the Navy huh? Marines and Navy are part of the same branch. And no I'm not going to be deployed to Afghanistan, if I get a say so I'll be staying in the U.S. If not then I'll be stationed in South Korea. Good luck protecting us grunts when the Russians start shelling shells on your ship, me I'll be in a foxhole or a rabbit hole for that matter. But yeah thanks.

Marines huh. Congrats on joining a grunt branch. Enjoy your s**t deployments. I'll stay on my boat.
