John Wayne lyrics
Dylan isn’t Dylan and Wayne isn’t Wayne They got where they are by changing their names Jesus was the first Superman we know that of course One got cross, got nailed – the other fell off his horse A white boy’s on stage singing black boys Blues He’s the bridge on the page making black music cool Songs of the black slaves, hollering in the fields Laid down in unmarked graves, never got million dollar deals John Wayne, John Wayne defender of the west All the way from Jeddah to Key West You’re still giving your ‘Man of peace’ talk While walking that legendary John Wayne walk You’re too long in the saddle You’re too long in the tooth Been through too many battles Listening to those Hollywood truths A conspiracy in J.R.’s home town Brought the hopes of the western world down You could have asked him not to paint the town red Coz you had to get rid of all those bugs in his and hers bed Dylan denying he’s made a profit/prophet Everyone’s telling him to ‘stop it’ If you buy souls then that’s the price Your veins must be flowing with pure ice John Wayne, John Wayne why don’t you dance And break free of that soldiers stance You look so square you look so stiff Just turn your head and face the rift I e-mailed the Lord but it got leaked On a rocking boat up on Cripple Creek There’s a burning bush over there Out in the woods running bear John Wayne, John Wayne count the notches on your gun How many of them were your sons You show your strength and your power As you tread on the trembling flowers John Wayne, John Wayne no twin you stand alone All that grey meat’s shaking on your bones Buddy is gone can’t spare you a dime His plane went down before its time John Wayne, John Wayne better cover your head The Marlboro Man’s shooting sticks of lead He ain’t no Mason he ain’t no bride John Wayne do you have God on your side?
