Lyrics & Music by Jules Jackson

Gunner Joe (Does Your Oil Run Red ?)
Does your oil run red in Houston Town?
Does it burn in Abilene?
Does your oil run red in Houston Town?
What price your gasoline?

Gunner Joe was a Houston kid
He joined up with the Marines
Well, they trained him hard
And they shipped him out
From Fort Hood in Killeen..

They dropped poor Joe in a hot LZ
To face the Persian steel
Through blood stained wire
He saw men on fire
Near the Burquan fields..

Does your oil run red in Houston Town?
Does it burn in Abilene?
Does your oil run red in Houston Town?
What price your gasoline?

Gunner Joe was on patrol
When he heard that RPG
As he ran for his jeep
He discovered how cheap
Life in Basra can be.

They shipped Joe home in a cardboard box
To his wife and babies three..
The White House said,
“This poor Jarhead
Died for Democracy”

Does your oil run red in Houston Town?
Does it burn in Abilene?
Does your oil run red in Houston Town?
What price your gasoline?
