1.Introduction/Copyright
--------------------------------
My name is Eric Burkemper, General Eric on GameFAQs.com,
and this is my first FAQ in a long time so ignore the generic
FAQ design I have, since I don't expect me to be updating this
much without someone sending me info.

This guide is for EA/DICE PC game Battlefield: Vietnam, and it's 
purpose is to list the songs and their lyrics, since that's one 
of the most asked questions on the game. While this guide may seem
a bit late, the game is still pretty popular so this guide seems needed.

This may be not be reproduced under any circumstances except for personal,
private use. It may not be placed on any web site or otherwise distributed 
publicly without advance written permission. Use of this guide on any other 
web site or as a part of any public display is strictly prohibited, 
and a violation of copyright.

www.bfvfiles.com is a very good Battlefield: Vietnam site for downloads of maps,
mods, patches, etc.

2.FAQ
--------------------------------
Q: Why did you create this guide?
A: To help answer one the most asked questions about this game, "What
songs are in this game"

Q: What's the name of the song that plays in the menu?
A: A remix of the song 'White Rabbit" by Jefferson Airplane

Q: In what vehicles can you play music in?
A: For the Battlefield Vietnam game, any vehicle, from US Heli's to
NVA Mopeds, any vehicle you can get into in the game can play music.
Everyone plays the exact same music too. Some mods of Battlefield
Vietnam (Namely Point of Existence) will only let you play songs
in certain vehicles, such as the jeep.

Q: How do you play music?
A: By pressing the number 0 (zero) on your number line above the 
letters on your keyboard, this can be remapped to a different key
if you want. Then you press a letter on the keyboard that corresponds
to that song. So pressing "A" on the keyboard after pressing "0" will 
play the song "Fortunate Son" and so forth

Q: Can other people hear my music?
A: Yes they can, both friendly and enemy, so if you want to go in undetected
in a vehicle, it's better to not play music

Q: How can I play custom music?
A: Take any .mp3 file or shortcut to an .mp3 file and place it in the 
"Custom Playlist Folder" folder, which can be found in the start menu under
EA Games -> Battlefield Vietnam -> Custom Playlist Folder and if you 
can't find it, then just do a search for "Custom Playlist Folder"

Q: Can other people hear my custom music?
A: No, they just hear the song the letter of your music corresponds too.
So if you're listening to the song "Crazy Train" and it's in the letter "A"
position then everyone else will be listening to "Fortunate Son"

Q: How many custom play list songs can I have?
A: Up to 26, one for every letter in the alphabet.

Q: What's the whole point of music?
A: Mainly the for the coolness value, as seeing helicopters fly by playing 
"Surfin' Bird" can be a pretty cool sight, and also for your personal enjoyment
when driving your tank long distances.

==============================================
A.Fortunate Son - Creedence Clearwater Revival

Some folks are born, made to wave the flag
Ooh they're red white and blue.
And when the band plays "Hail to the chief"
Ooh they point the cannon at you Lord

It ain't me it ain't me I ain't no senator's son son.
It ain't me it ain't me; I ain't no fortunate one no
Yeah!

Some folks are born silver spoon in hand
Lord don't they help themselves oh.
But when the taxman comes to the door
Lord, the house looks like a rummage sale, yes,

It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no millionaire's son, no.
It ain't me, it ain't me; I ain't no fortunate one, no.

Some folks inherit star spangled eyes,
Ooh, they send you down to war, Lord,
And when you ask them, "How much should we give?"
Ooh, they only answer More! more! more! yoh,

It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no military son, son.
It ain't me, it ain't me; I ain't no fortunate one, one.
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no fortunate one, no no no,
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no fortunate son, no no no

==============================================

B.War - Edwin Starr

War (Huh, yeah)
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing (Uh-huh, yeah)

War (Huh, yeah)
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing (say it again, y'all)

War (Huh, good god)
What is it good for?
Absolutely Nothing (Listen to me)

War, I despise
Cause it means destruction of innocent lives
War means tears in thousands of mothers' eyes
When their sons go out to fight
And lose their lives

(Chorus 2x)

War ain't nothing but a heartbreaker
(War)
Friend only to the undertaker

Oh, war is an enemy to all mankind
The thought of war blows my mind
War has caused unrest within the younger generation
Induction, then destruction
Who wants to die?

(Chorus 2x)

War ain't nothing but a heartbreaker
It's got one friend, that's the undertaker

Oh, war has shattered many young man's dreams
Made him disabled, bitter and mean
Life is much too short and precious
To spend fighting wars these days
War can't give life, it can only take it away

(Chorus 2x)

War ain't nothing but a heartbreaker
(War)
Friend only to the undertaker

These moments they understand and tell me
Is there no place for everyday?
They say we must fight to keep our freedom
But Lord, there's just got to be a better way

(Chorus 3x...fade)

==============================================

C.Nowhere to Run - Martha and the Vandellas

Nowhere to run to, baby
Nowhere to hide (oooh)
Got nowhere to run to, baby
Nowhere to hide (oooh)

It's not love I'm runnin' from
It's the heartaches I know will come
'Cause I know you're no good for me (no good)
But you've become a part of me
Everywhere I go, your face I see
Every step I take, you take with me, yeah

Nowhere to run to, baby
Nowhere to hide (oooh)
Got nowhere to run to, baby
Nowhere to hide (oooh)
I know you're no good for me
But free of you, I'll never be, no

Each night as I sleep,
Into my heart, you creep
I wake up feelin' sorry I met you
Hopin' soon that I'll forget you
When I look in the mirror to comb my hair,
I see your face just a-smilin' there

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide from you, baby (oooh)
Got nowhere to run to, baby
Nowhere to hide (oooh)
I know you're no good for me
But you've become a part of me

How can I fight a love
That shouldn't be
When it's so deep, so deep,
Deep inside of me?
My love reaches so high, I can't get over it
It's so wide, I can't get around it, no

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide from you, baby (oooh)
Just can't get away from you, baby
No matter how I try
I know you're no good for me
But free of you, I'll never be

Nowhere to run to, baby
Nowhere to hide (nowhere to hide)
Got nowhere to run to, baby
Nowhere to hide (nowhere to hide)
Got nowhere to run (nowhere to hide)
Got nowhere to run (nowhere to hide)
(fade out)

F.On the Road Again - Canned Heat

Well, I'm so tired of crying,
But I'm out on the road again.
I'm on the road again.
Well, I'm so tired of crying,
But I'm out on the road again.
I'm on the road again.
I ain't got no woman
Just to call my special friend.
You know the first time I traveled hard
Out in the rain and snow -
In the rain and snow,
You know the first time I traveled hard
Out in the rain and snow -
In the rain and snow,
I didn't have no payroll,
Not even no place to go.
And my dear mother left me
When I was quite young -
When I was quite young.
And my dear mother left me
When I was quite young -
When I was quite young.
She said "Lord, have mercy
On my wicked son."
Take a hint from me, mama,
Please don't you cry no more -
Don't you cry no more.
Take a hint from me, mama,
Please don't you cry no more -
Don't you cry no more.
'Cause it's soon one morning
Down the road I'm going.
But I aint going down
That long old lonesome road
All by myself.
But I aint going down
That long old lonesome road
All by myself.
I can't carry you, Baby,
Gonna carry somebody else 
Gonna carry somebody else. 

==============================================

G.Shakin' All Over - The Guess Who

When you move in right up close to me
That's when I get the shakes all over me

Quivers down my backbone
I got the shakes in the knee bones
Shivers down my thigh bones
Like I'm
Shakin' all over

That's what happens when you say goodnight to me
Bring this feeling all inside of me
Quivers down my backbone
I got the shakes in the knee bones
Shivers in the thigh bones
Like I'm
Shakin' all over

==============================================

H.Psychotic Reaction - Count Five

I feel depressed, I feel so bad
'Cause you're the best girl that I ever had
I can't get your love, I can't get a fraction
Uh-oh, little girl, psychotic reaction

I feel so lonely night and day
I can't get your love, I must stay away
I need you girl, by my side
Uh-oh, little girl, would you like to take a ride, now
I can't get your love, I can't get satisfaction
Uh-oh, little girl, psychotic reaction

M.Somebody To Love - Jefferson Airplane

When the truth is found to be lies
And all the joy within you dies

Don't you want somebody to love
Don't you need somebody to love
Wouldn't you love somebody to love
You better find somebody to love

When the garden flowers baby are dead yes
And your mind is full of red

Don't you want somebody to love
Don't you need somebody to love
Wouldn't you love somebody to love
You better find somebody to love

Your eyes, I say your eyes may look like his
But in your head baby I'm afraid you don't know where it is

Don't you want somebody to love
Don't you need somebody to love
Wouldn't you love somebody to love
You better find somebody to love

Tears are running ah running down your breast
And your friends baby they treat you like a guest

Don't you want somebody to love
Don't you need somebody to love
Wouldn't you love somebody to love
You better find somebody to love

==============================================

N.I Fought the Law - Bobby Fuller Four

I'm breakin' rocks in the hot sun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I needed money 'cause I had none
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I left my baby and I feel so sad
I guess my race is run
But she's the best girl I've ever had
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

Robbin' people with a six-gun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I miss my baby and the good fun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I left my baby and I feel so sad
I guess my race is run
But she's the best girl I've ever had
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won
