PROUD THUNDER, by Tony Savides



(With apologies to CCR and Proud Mary)



Left our good jobs in the city
Workin' for the Army ev'ry night and day
And we never lost one minute of sleepin'
Worryin' 'bout the way things might have been

Big wheels keep on turnin'
proud thunder keep on churnin'
Ratels, rollin', rollin' to the river

Cleared a lot of Swaps in Angola
Pumped a lot of Faplas down in Tumpo-land
But I never saw the good side of the T-tanks
'Til I saw them klapped by a 105

Steel tracks keep on turnin'
Olifante keep on churnin'
Rollin', rollin', rollin' to the river

Armour, rollin', rollin' to the Cuito

When we got down to the Cuito
There we got to find some Cubans down there
But we didn’t worry 'cause we had their number
and the hungry gunners were just happy to give

Big guns keep on hurlin'
Ripples just keep on burnin'
Rollin', rollin', rollin' to the river
Rollin, thunder, rollin' ‘cross the river

Ratels, rollin', rollin’ to the river
Olies, rollin', rollin' to the river
G5, thunder, rollin' ‘cross the river
