Songwriters: Greene, M. Jason; Walker, Clay

Every boy dreams of being a man
There'll come a moment when he'll get a chance
Well, it's how you live, it ain't how you die
Nowadays, the real ones are so hard to find

Where are the men with the nerves made of steel
Hearts that are wild and unbroken and real
They say what they mean, and they mean what they say
Ride off like heroes after saving the day
So let's all raise our glasses to spirits untamed
Make us all something strong, a double shot of John Wayne

I've been knocked down a time or two
And this scar on my chin, it ain't no tattoo
We might take falls, but cowboys don't cry
So get up on your ponies, and let's all whip and ride

'Cause we are the men with the nerves made of steel
Hearts that are wild and unbroken and real
They say what they mean, and they mean what they say
Ride off like heroes after saving the day
So let's all raise our glasses to spirits untamed
Make us all something strong, a double shot of John Wayne

There's blue collars, white collars, but we all bleed red
And what will they say when we're all dead

Where are the men with the nerves made of steel
Hearts that are wild and unbroken and real
They say what they mean, and they mean what they say
Ride off like heroes after saving the day
So let's all raise our glasses to spirits untamed
Make us all something strong, a double shot of John Wayne

Yeah, make us all something strong, a double shot of John Wayne
