    Lyrics

    (Well as long as there's a truck I won't forget Korea and Operation X)
    I won't forget the year of '54 I drove a truck in that Korean war
    Haulin' GI's to the front and back in a truck they called Duce and a half
    The orders called it Operation X we had to move in just an hour or less
    First echelon and maintenance that was all and there
    were twenty men I had to haul
    That south Korean sky was smoky black I was third in convoy from the back
    But twenty minutes out they hit the nail it was mortar
    they were sendin' in the mail
    We'll scatter out and find a hole they said cause Operation
    X is catchin' lead
    I wheeled into a sideroad to the left drivin' to an almost certain death
    I heard the steady creepin' of the shells the burnin'
    powder sent a deadly smell

    And it happened as I pulled into a stop they hit us
    and I blacked out from the shock
    Somehow I got back to the States alive and now I got another rig to drive
    My bumper sign says Operation X it's there cause I'm
    the only one that's left
    Operation X it's there cause I'm the only one that's left
    Yeah it's there cause I'm the only one that's left
    Operation X it's there cause I'm the only one that's left
