Lucille Lyrics

by Fred Eaglesmith

Well, Lucille was a woman and I was a boy
And it was obvious that she wanted more
Than a man her age could give her
And that was me
I was wild as a summer squall
Blowin' through town no direction at all
I was wilder than even she could believe
I had Cobra Jet 428
In a '65 Ford
And it ran great
Take it on out to where that gravel turns to road
Take it on up to 110
Tires screaming in and out of the bends
And Lucille hanging on just as tight as she could
And it was crazy
But it sure was good
Well, Lucille was fifty and I was nineteen
And you know it never bothered me
Not even when they called out in the bar
I'd get tough and I'd bust some heads
Lucille would laugh when the cops got there
We'd sneak out the back and take off in my car
I had a Cobra Jet 428
In a '65 Ford
And it ran great
Take it on out to where that gravel turns to road
Take it on up to 110
Tires screaming in and out of the bends
And Lucille hanging on just as tight as she could
And it was crazy
But it sure was good
Well, last week I turned forty-five
When I woke up
Well, out in the driveway
My wife had fixed that old car up for me
She'd had it in the garage for a week or two
And when I got it back it was good as new
I started it up and I took off down the highway
I drove on up to Randolph Heights
There's an old folk's home there past the lights
And Lucille sitting out there in the shade
I wheeled her around to the passenger door
I picked her up and put her in that car
And we took off like a dust bowl hurricane
And that Cobra Jet 428
And that '65 Ford well it ran great
Took it on out to where that gravel turns to road
Took it on up to 110
Tires screaming in and out of the bend
And Lucille hanging on just as tight as she could
And it was crazy
But it sure was good

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony

She told me in the morning she don't feel the same about us in her bones
It seems to me that when I die these words will be written on my stone
