Toby Keith

"Ballad Of Balad"

[Verse 1]
I quit school in the 10th grade and I grew out my hair
I got me a job doing lawnmower repair
I met an army recruiter down at the Wynn Dixie
He said "son you've no future, pack up and go with me"

[Verse 2]
The first place we landed was a base called Ballad
They convoyed our asses to a 10 acre F.O.B
With my boots and my cover and an old M16
Two bottles of water and a cold M.R.E

[Chorus]
Oh you'll meet lots of new friends and you're sure to get paid
We'll show you the world and we'll teach you a trade
It's not a job, it's an adventure, oh yes sir I got that
Ah but you never told me I'd get my ass shot at
You never told me I'd get my ass shot at

[Verse 3]
The first night in combat we went out on patrol
They ambushed our convey and we chased the as*h*le
We found them all hiding in low water ditches
And we took aim and killed all them son of a b*tches

[Chorus]
Oh you'll meet lots of new friends and you're sure to get paid
We'll show you the world and we'll teach you a trade
It's not a job, it's an adventure, oh yes sir I got that
Ah but you never told me I'd get my ass shot at
You never told me I'd get my ass shot at

[Verse 4]
Walked in on my buddy with a female M.P
The ugliest woman you ever did see
He said "why are you laughing, you got lots of nerve"
Over here in the desert we grade on the curve

[Verse 5]
Ah you'll meet lots of new friends and you're sure to get paid
We'll show you the world and we'll teach you a trade
It's not a job, it's an adventure, oh yes sir I got that
Ah but you never told me I'd get my ass shot at
Oh you never told him he'd get his ass shot at
