Nuclear Neurosis Blues


Words: Bobby Evans
Traditional Yodel Tune
Now the President came upon the scene
Chief resident of Washington D.C.
Now he knew these Chinese communists were mean
So he figured a hero he would be
He sent soldiers by the score off to fight the Viet-war
Now he's filled the future with uncertainty

I got the Nuclear Neurosis Blues
cause the policy he chose
is bound to lose

Now we know that L.B.J. is quite a guy
And there's nothin' in the world he wouldn't try
But sometimes I get so scared I have to cry
'Cause I'm wonderin' if sparks are gonna fly
War-bombs made a wasteland vast
Out of Hiroshima's blast
Hey, I'm twenty-one and that's too young to die.

I got the Nuclear Neurosis Blues
cause the policy he chose
is bound to lose

So I'm standin' here a shiverin' in my shoes
While I listen to the Huntley-Brinkley news
Huntley tells me of the many men we lose
Brinkley tells me that the Viet Cong refuse
To negotiate a peace
Or let their fire cease
So I pour myself a dozen shots of booze.

I got the Nuclear Neurosis Blues
cause the policy he chose
is bound to lose

Now I'm layin' here upon my feather bed
And I'm singin' cause I'm stoned out of my head
Like a loaded Legionaire that's full of dread
'Bout the loathesome leadership by whom he ' s led
So I drunkenly rejoice
I ain't got no other choice
L.B.J. has planned my future far ahead.

I got the Nuclear Neurosis Blues
cause the policy he chose
is bound to lose
