Me and Jimmie Rodgers used to ride them rollin' boxcars in the summer time
Jimmie he'd play his guitar I'd lay back and watch the stars and sip my wine
Me and Audie Murphy used to crawl out on our bellies through the German lines
Audie I won't leave you here
I'll pull you through cause you know you're a friend of mine
Me and Phil Rizzuto didn't we move like lightnin' round there on the double play
I'd look over in the stands and Marilyn would see me and she'd smile and wave
Hell no Coach Lombadi this old broken back ain't nothin' if the game is saved
And fellers if I don't pull through just put a little golden football on my grave
John Wayne he once said to me them Japs they'll take that Island
And we've got to save the old Red White and Blue
Someone's got to swim out to that submarine and warn 'em
You know T I hate like hell to ask you to
Me and Sugar Ray we used to spar together up there an old Stillman's Gym
Knowin' someday it would be the garden and the championship for me or him
And Coop if no one in this town is man enough to back you when Frank Miller comes
Come High Noon I'll walk with you I've had a few but I know how to use a gun
[ ac.guitar ]
Betty Grable don't you cry you know you can be a star
And with my drinkin' I'd just hold you back
So go on sign the contracts kid
I'll read about you in some old newspaper from some rack
Cause me and Jimmie Rodgers we still ride them rollin' boxcars in the summer time
Jimmie he plays his guitar I lay back and watch the stars and sip my wine
Me and Audie Murphy we still crawl out on our bellies through the German lines
At away there's scooner shoot that ball to me and I swear we'll get two this time
(So what's old Hank I said Hank I wrote a real good song and he said lemme hear it
I went out of a truck to give my guitar to rest is hist'ry)
