Salute To A Switchblade Written and recorded by Tom T. Hall
C Me and Yates an army buddy of mine F G7 C Were doing three years in Germany at the time
We came upon these Frauleins in the bar F G7 C Yates said darf isch zee be-gleit-en they said ya G7 C And darf isch zee be-gleit-en means can we sit with you all
Oh we must have drunk ten quarts of German beer F G7 C My conscience and my sinuses were clear
I asked that Fraulein if she was a spy F G7 C She said nein but do bis ain bissel high G7 C A condition not uncommon to the American soldier
Well later on I went to be excused F G7 C When I returned I was a bit confused
Yates and his Fraulein had hit the air F G7 C Another guy was sitting in my chair G7 C A young soldier whom we shall get to know better
I said excuse me Mister that's my seat F G7 C I'd like to have it back sir if you please
That girl's a nurse and I've been awful sick F G7 C The man looked up at me and said mox-nix G7 C Which means that he wad not overly concerned with my health
Next thing I knew he had a switchblade knife F G7 C Lord I didn't know that Fraulein was his wife
I took off through that Gasthaus like a fool F G7 C Behind me I heard the crashing stools G7 C As the police would say he was in hot pursuit
Well the waitress yelled there's MPs on the way F G7 C That's one more reason I didn't want to stay
As I went out the window something went swish F G7 C And I giggled all the way home knowing he missed G7 C At the time it seemed like a laughing matter
But next morning my coat was lying there on the bunk F G7 C And when I saw that coat it made me jump
That man had cut my coat right down the back F G7 C A little bit more and they'd been playing me taps G7 C And knowing the sad nature of that song I would decline it
Well later on I heard that guy got stabbed F G7 C They sent him home and didn't that make me glad
On love and marriage I want to say one thing F G7 C Oh lady if you're married wear that ring
G7 C And the army has a new policy if you can't move it paint it G7 If it has a switchblade knife salute it C Not necessarily an incident one would want to write Mother about G7 C Germany being full of good soldiers good people
