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.
