Lyrics:

I was driving way out to November
A trip of a hundred or so
Fighting the wind and the weather
The wind and the rain and the snow
I stayed awake through the briefings
Though my bloodshot eyes could not see
I've heard the same thing for the past eight months:
"Let's get ready for the IG!"

And nothing's too good for the missile-men, and nothing is just what we get
The pilots get all the gravy, the missile-men get all the grit!

I picked up my truck at the motor pool
And drove for the rising sun
With luck and a hell of a tailwind
I'll be there before day is done
I headed way out to the boonies
Where mere mortals dare not tread
'Cause the missile-men guard the country
While the pilots are shacked up in bed!

And nothing's too good for the missile-men, and nothing is just what we get
The pilots get all the gravy, the missile-men get all the grit!

I asked the DO, "Where's November?"
His answer, it gave me a fright
"Just drive to the edge of the world," he said,
"And when you get there, hang a right!"
I drove 'til my gas tank was empy
I drove 'til I ran out of gas
To the left or the right, not a soul could be seen
So I lay down to die in the grass

And nothing's too good for the missile-men, and nothing is just what we get
The pilots get all the gravy, the missile-men get all the grit!

I shimmied the pole up to Heaven
Ah, listen to what I do tell
When I saw the SAC fist on the pearly gate
I thought I was surely in Hell!
St. Peter was watching me struggle
He threw back his head and he laughed
He said, "Everyone else rides the elevator, but missile-men still get the shaft!"


And nothing's too good for the missile-men, and nothing is just what we get
The pilots get all the gravy, the missile-men get all the grit!
And nothing's too good for the missile-men, and nothing is just what we get
The pilots get all the gravy, the missile-men get all the grit!
