I could walk in
To the sunset
With my best girl by my side
I would pull her up beside me
And together we would ride

Hey Ma
Hey Pa
Look at me standin' tall
Brother
Sister
Look at them bad guys fall

I'm walkin' and talkin' real slow
Out where the tumbleweed blows
Hey Ma
Hey Pa
Let those wagons roll!

I played poker
With a doctor
Stand straight up
And call him cheat
Then I walked those 20 paces
I gunned him right down
In the street

Hey Ma
Hey Pa
Look at me standin' tall
Brother
Sister - (Ha! )
Look at them bad guys fall

I'm walkin' and talkin' real slow
Out where the tumbleweed blows
Hey Ma
Hey Pa
Let those wagons roll!

Don't wake me up
I'm dreamin' John Wayne's dream
Under a sky so big
On a prairie green

Please leave me here
In John Wayne's dream - (Yeah! )

I'd ride shotgun
On a stagecoach
Keep those bandits
From my girl
And I'd hold her
Around the waist, man
I'd run my rough hands
Through those curls

Hey Ma
Hey Pa
Look at me standing tall
Brothers - (Ha! )
Sisters
Look at those bad guys fall

I'm walkin' and talkin' real slow
Out where the tumbleweed blows
Hey Ma
Hey Pa
Let those wagons roll!

Don't wake me up
I'm dreamin' John Wayne's dream
Under a sky so big
On a prairie green

Please leave me here
In John Wayne's dream

Hey Ma
Hey Pa
Look at me standin' tall
Brother (Ow! )
Sister
Look at them bad guys fall

I'm walkin' and talkin' real slow
Out where the tumbleweed blows
Hey Ma
Hey Pa
Let those wagons roll!
