Interpretations:Thankful For Your Service

From This Might Be A Wiki

A little obsolete on-the-nose interpretation for ya[edit]

The song basically compares being forced to house a soldier with having a crappy roommate who steals you're clearly labelled food and soaks your slippers. Back in the day, the inconvenience must have been a lot worse for the citizen in question, but the message comes across nonetheless. The guy obviously respects the soldier and wants to help him, but basically living in a diner and sleeping on a sleeping bag in your own home is too much to ask.

Interpretation 2[edit]

Just want to make a note that the sleeping bag line comes from the song Gentle on my Mind, probably most famously sung by the late Glen Campbell. Anon, 12/12/2018
