George Jeffrey
G. I. Loan

My granddaddy fought in World War I
Came back proud when he was done
My daddy was proud to be his son
And a heroes welcome home

Found two scrub acres straight up and down
25 miles from the nearest town
Howling of the wind was the only sound
And he bought it on a G.I. Loan

Built a four room house on the side of that hill
You know, that house is standing still
A place to call his very own
And he bought it on a G. I. Loan
Yeah, he bought it on a G.I. Loan

Then my daddy went off to World War II
Came back proud when he was through
God Bless the Red, White and Blue
And a heroes welcome home

Got a job in the nearest town
Married my Mamma and settled down
Found a house on the edge of town
And he bought it on a G.I. Loan

Three bedroom, brick and a concrete drive
Man it's great to be alive
A place to call his very own
And he bought it on a G.I. Loan
Yeah, he bought it on a G.I. Loan

Then I went off to Vietnam
Came back to "who gives a damn"
Not even give the boys a hand
No heroes welcome home

The city streets were filled with fire
My mind was hanging by a wire
A crazy vet no one would hire
And I couldn't get a G.I. Loan

So I ran off to the Delta land
I'm a wild California Delta man
This peace of mind's my very own
Who needs your G.I. Loan
Go to hell with your G.I. Loan
All I want is to be left alone!
