John Martyn – John Wayne lyrics

I believe I'm John Wayne
They call me John Wayne

You know you've got it coming
I'll tell it to you straight
I'm coming for you very soon
I'll never hesitate

I've come to measure you
I will fit you up
I've come to measure you
Fit you up

I am John Wayne
I believe I'm John Wayne
They call me John Wayne

You felt the money flowing
You watched the beast arrive
You felt your money going away
And tried to skin the lamb alive

Come to measure you
Fit you up
I come to measure you
Fit you up

I am John Wayne
I am John Wayne
They tell me I am, the John Wayne

Coming very soon
I'm coming for you
Any day now

Don't you dare look behind you
For you know I will be there
You'll feel my breath on your neck
Turn, face me if you dare

I've come to measure you
I've come to fix you up
I've come to measure you
Fix you up

I am John Wayne
I believe I'm John Wayne
You know, my name is John Wayne
Get on your horse

Measure you
This man has come to measure you, measure you, measure you
Measure you
This man, this man and that man come to measure you

I say, measure you
Coming inch by inch like a marigold line
Smiling inchworm like a marigold line
Inch my way, measure you

Measure you, measure you
I come to measure you
I come to measure you
I come to measure you
