Re-enlistment My Blues

Es la canción que cantan los soldados en From here to eternity (De aquí a la eternidad, 1953) cuando se reúnen en el dormitorio y en sus noches de permiso. La letra fue escrita por el propio James Jones (autor de la novela From here to eterniy) e interpretada por Merle Travis, quien tiene un papel como el soldado Sal Andersom.

I'll find a job tomorrowTonight I'll maybe be deadmaybe be dead.

The Right Profile
Lyric
Say, where did I see this guy?
In red river?
Or a place in the sun?
Maybe the misfits?
Or from here to eternity?

Everybody say, is he all right?
And everybody say, whats he like?
Everybody say, he sure looks funny.
Thats...Montgomery Clift, honey!

New York, New York, New York, 42nd street
Hustlers rustle and pimps pimp the beat
Monty Clift is recognized at dawn
He aint got no shoes and his clothes are torn

I see a car smashed at night
Cut the applause and dim the light
Monty's face is broken on a wheel
Is he alive? can he still feel?

Everybody say, is he all right?
And everybody say, whats he like?
Everybody say, he sure looks funny.
Thats...Montgomery Clift, honey!

Nembutol numbs it all
But I prefer alcohol

He said go out and get me my old movie stills
Go out and get me another roll of pills
There I go again shaking, but I aint got the chills
