I was a mid-80's Jarhead, first job after getting out was running a press printing DESERT SHEILD SUPPORT OUR TROOPS stickers. The battalion I was attached to went to combat, my combat stories mostly involve fishbowl margaritas in TJ (Tijuana). I'd drum along but the existing drums are rather prominent.

Hi Pete from two old soldiers to another This is just an idea Looking for a complete new sound All ideas welcome The track is just a rough demo Wanting new instrumentals drums etc and vocals Its a stripped down lyrical version The complete lyrics below Goodbye Afghanistan Versewithfriends and The Beubi 2021 Poss Intro Driving a four-wheel hummer The midday sun was hot Tracking across the desert Kicking up a cloud of dust Searched a field of poppies Down this deserted track Doing fine till we hit that mine It was big and hell of a blast On with our boots and our Stetson hats Sent back home to Texas Goodbye Afghanistan Poss Verse A soldier?s life?s not easy Doing the best you can Left a million bootprints In that far-off land Now back home mending bones With a medal from uncle Sam No more fighting No more war Goodbye Afghanistan On with our boots and our Stetson hats Back home in Texas Goodbye Afghanistan Poss Verse So we formed this band Called The Brothers Rehearsed a song or two My sergeant?s he?s the drummer Sings when he?s had a few Lieutenant plays lead guitar Me I play the bass Now back home living again Here in the USA On with our boots and our Stetson hats Back home in Texas Goodbye Afghanistan Poss Verse Strumming and jamming Rocking some more Screaming and yelling Just having us a ball On with our boots and our Stetson hats Coming home to Texas Goodbye Afghanistan Poss verse When it comes to the ladies Always try to do our best Hit on those good lookers Who might fancy three old vets Battle scarred and ready Were giving it all we can Rocking rolling having some fun Goodbye Afghanistan Poss Outro Comrades in war died and fought Where the law there just a gun Brought them home beneath the flag From battles lost and won Gave their lives for freedom To help their fellow man At peace they lie for evermore Goodbye Afghanistan On with their boots And Stetson hats Coming home to Texas Goodbye Afghanistan Goodbye Afghanistan Goodbye Afghanistan
