Song Lyrics:
I was a PFC on a search patrol, huntin' charlie down
It was in the jungle wars of '65
My weapon jammed and I got stuck way out and all alone
And I could hear the enemy movin' in close outside

Just then I heard a twig snap, and I grabbed my empty gun
And I dug in scared, while I counted down my fate
And then a big Marine - a giant, with a pair of friendly eyes
Appeared there at my shoulder and said, Wait

When he came in close beside me, he said don't worry, son, I'm here
If charlie wants to tangle now, he'll have two to dodge
I said, Well, thanks a lot
I told him my name and asked him his
And he said, The boys just call me Camouflage

Woah-oh-oh-oh, Camouflage
Things are never quite the way they seem
Woah-oh-oh-oh, Camouflage
I was awfully glad to see this big Marine

Well, we fought all night and side by side, we took our battle stance
And I wondered how the bullets missed this man
'Cause they seemed to go right through him, just as if he wasn't there
And in the mornin' we both took a chance and ran

And it was near the riverbank when the ambush came on top of us
And I thought it was the end, and we were had
Then a bullet with my name on it came buzzin' through a bush
And that big Marine, he just swat it with his hand
Just like it was a fly

Woah-oh-oh-oh, Camouflage
Things are never quite the way they seem
Woah-oh-oh-oh, Camouflage
This was an awfully strange Marine

{spoken}

And I knew there was somethin' weird about him,
'Cause when I turned around,
He was pullin' a big palm tree up outta the ground
And swattin' those charlies with it from here to kingdom come

When he led me outta danger I saw my camp and waved goodbye
He just winked at me from the jungle and then was gone
When I got back to my HQ, I told 'em about my night
And the battle I'd spent with a big marine named Camouflage

When I said his name, the soldier gulped, and a medic took my arm
And led me to a green tent on the right
He said, You may be tellin' true, boy, but this here is Camouflage
And he's been right here since he passed away last night
In fact, he's been here all week long...

But before he went, he said Semper Fi, and said his only wish
Was to save a young Marine caught in a barrage
So here, take his dog tag, son, I know he'd want you to have it now
And we both said a prayer for a big Marine named Camouflage

Woah-oh-oh-oh, Camouflage
Things are never quite the way they seem
Woah-oh-oh-oh, Camouflage
This was an awfully big Marine

Hup, hey-ho, hey, left... left...
Woah, woah, camouflage
Hey, hey-ho, ho, left... left...
Woah, woah, camouflage
(Backwoods)
