Cash Before some 2nd Lt intel weenie goes ”Marines weren’t there”, let me say, it’s only a blog post. I jotted it down real late or early depending how you look at it while listening and agreeing as a good song played and I finished my coffee, in piece, get a life. Hello,I’m Maj Pain.

"I’ve Been Everywhere"

I was totin’ my pack along the long dusty Iraqi road,
When along came a 7-ton with a high an’ canvas-covered load.
"If you’re goin’ to Iraq or Afghanistan, Mack, with me you can ride."
And so I climbed into the cab and then I settled down inside.
He asked me if I’d seen a road with so much dust and sand.
And I said, "Listen Devil Dog (DD), I’ve traveled every road in this here land!"

(start tapping foot here)

I’ve been everywhere, man.
I’ve been everywhere, man.
Crossed the deserts bare, man.

  1. Sunday, at 12:30 and 5:30 pm Atlanta radio’s 920 WGKA is interviewing some soldiers who were in Iraq, two have turned against the war, one still thinks the war is just.
    I’m just letting interested parties know.
    Here’s the link:

    there is a listen live button in the upper left corner of the web page.
    Cheers !!

  2. To Rangersgirl
    Maj P and the others like him are fighting for the Soldiers right to be for or against the war.
    My sons girl friend is anti war/gov’t/military- I told her we were defending her right to have that opinion!!!

  3. I think you need to perform that at the next MilBlogging Conference. And, if you’re still out saving the world, you could VTC it for us!
    I’d pay money to see you ;~) I’m sure there are others here who would do the same.

  5. Well, I’ve never NOT liked you, but you just won all the points today, bec. I clicked on and you had Stevie Ray playing.
    THE best guitar player ever. EVER.
    Good morning and thank you!!

  6. Maj – if you could conjure up a nice slow dancin’ tune, I sure would like to do some dirty dancin’ with Mrs. Tutwiler.
    What???
    Not THAT kinda dirty dancin’!!! Geez, I haven’t had a shower in 40 days; I’VE BEEN EVERYWHERE, MAN, and I’m a little dusty!!!!!

  7. Oh, CG! Young man, that is just not right! Well, I never…
    How could you have been under Maj P’s command this long without learning that you must first issue a “Yut”, “Bam!” or at least a “You’ll get over it” before asking a lady to dance? I don’t care where you’ve been or how dusty a dirt person is, you MUST follow proprieties!

  8. From the words of the Man In Black to the words of the Man in Green…Love it….and thank all you men in green for being everywhere…

  9. Hoping all of you are safe after hearing the news about so many being hurt in Afghanistan, and Iraq. Godspeed and prayers to all of you, friends over there. and your families back stateside.
    Godspeed….

  10. Perfect! Join the Marines, see the world..
    including some of the real messy parts!
    I know Jonny would approve! God bless you. Take care.

  11. I am sure that the Man in Black would appreciate and probably sing along.
    Ma and I just came back from a short vacation in Branson MO.
    Johnny’s son Jefferson is performing there. He caught us in a Micky D’s eating breakfast. I was wearing my retired Marine cap.
    He came over and asked if I was a veteran, I told him yes. He gave Ma and I free tickets to his show.
    Johnny would definitely approve.

  12. Okay, Major P, now every time I hear the hotel commercial with the “I’ve been everywhere” song I think of you guys!! That commercial is on a LOT, lol!
    Stay safe!

  15. Thanks Gang, this is the kind of song you hum as you ave been on the road for 8 hours or so on a long road trip, ready to stop the car to let the dog & kids pee. I too think Mr Cash would like it. Semper to all stopping by, in a way, we all have been everywhere……thanks for all of you supporting us!!

  16. Maj – Kilo Alpha said to tell you she’d like to feel your pain.
    What?? Oh sorry, she’s feelin’ no pain. Ever.
    What?? Damn, kilo baby, you’re gonna have to tell the Maj yourself what you’d like to feel.

  17. I’m sorry to report Kilo Alpha just swooned and hit her head. She is conscious but incoherent…. something about “OH YES, I’M FEELING PAIN, OH YES, YES, YES….”

  18. STOP IT!!! STOP IT THIS MINUTE!!!
    What are you thinking Pain…over heating Kilo Alpha…we have enough warming to worry about without you adding to it!!!

  19. Well geez, Maj, not to complain ‘n whatnot ‘cuz I know we’re supposed to suck up those cupcakes, but me ‘n the boys are REAL CONCERNED ‘cuz WE’VE BEEN EVERYWHERE, too and no one but Mrs. Tutwiler has offered to feel our pain.
    Oh, sure, they’ll take our names, but we can’t get ’em to feel our pain. IF ya know what I mean.

  20. Hurt so gooooooood! C’mon Painy make it hurt soooo good!
    Hey, Concerned Grunt! I’m concerned that you may get too close to Ms. B’havin’ and possibly get hurt. Keep your helmut on tight!
