Song : “Sarge”

Sarge

He bought this here Texaco with a V.A. loan
Built this business all alone
And would hire any vet that come along
Who knew cars
He got his stripes in Vietnam
That’s where he learned to make a motor hum
You can ask most anyone
‘Bout Sarge

He hired me cause he knowed my dad
He was the closest to one I’ve had
He  kept me from goin’ bad
And outta the bars
He told me, “boy you better stay in school,
‘Cause I sure can’t use a fool
And every job’s got one right tool”
Well that was Sarge

I can still see him with his sleeves rolled up
Under the hood he’s got a crew cut
Chewing on the butt
Of a ten cent cigar
A person has gotta be made of wood
Not to feel a sense of botherhood
Once they’ve stood
Next to Sarge

When we’d see a car with special plates
The POWs and MIAs
I see a look come across his face
Something from the war
He’d say, “son, keep your seat
You best leave this one to me”
Then he’d fill the tank for free
Well that was Sarge

I can still see him with his sleeves rolled up …

I could talk all day and never get it right by Sarge
