    Student Visas
    (written by Corb Lund)

    They took away our dogtags, they had us grow our hair
    They gave us student visas when we were over there
    They staged us out of Hondo al este del Salvador
    I guess you'd call us Contras but no one calls much no more
    There ain’t no fun in killin’ folk and I don’t wanna do no more

    My great great rode at Shiloh and Grandpa drove a tank
    Daddy was air cavalry, flew choppers in the Nam {Da Nang}
    I worked mostly clandestine, the branch I should not say {CIA}
    We played with better guns and I could use the extra pay
    Did Reagan give the order? Did cocaine pay the bill?
    They said we's fightin' communists but it was kinda hard to tell
    There ain’t no fun in killin’ folk and I don’t wanna do no more

    This was before Blackhawks and RPGs were king
    My buddy on the door gun, he never felt a thing
    When our Huey caught a rocket and both the pilots killed
    And it pitched us over sideways on some Nicaraguan hill
    My back felt like it’s broken, my legs I could not feel
    I kept on shooting communists but it was kind of hard to tell
    There ain’t no fun in killin’ folk and I ain’t gonna do no more

    I never did heal up right from injuries sustained
    Officially in Germany, officially while we trained
    I remember all their faces, I dream about them still
    I guess we's fightin’ communists but it was kinda hard to tell
    There ain’t no fun in killin’ folk, and I don’t wanna do no more

    I speak the cold logistic that warriors speak so well
    Foxtrot tango whiskey alpha golf tango hotel
    A soldierly bravado, an unspeakable guilt
    That village, it was communist but it was kinda hard to tell
    There ain’t no fun in killin’ folk and I don’t wanna do no more
    Believe me, I’ve done plenty boys and I ain’t gonna do no more
    But of course if they back me in the corner they’ll be dead before they hit the floor
