I met John Wayne and Jesus when I was just a kid, they both had on their cowboy hats just like I pictured them, I stood up at the front of the class waving my American flag, saying the pledge sang amber waves of grain.
I sing all the songs of America, Danced in the rain of Lafayette,
I'm still hanging out with John Wayne and Jesus,
And I know that is as good as life can get.
I had a big time when I was down in Houston, I fell in love and moved to New Orleans, well she said "so long" now I'm here all alone, she's still got a little bitty piece of me.
Well John Wayne and Jesus moved out to Hollywood, workin' behind the scenes of mtv, me I'm still right down here in Texas, I know that's where I was always meant to be.
