"Operation X" as written by and Tom T. Hall....
(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' G-I'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 side road 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
