Django Walker

Skinny young kid who sits in the back of the class
Nobody knows his name, nobody cares to ask
They just sit up front and tell him he won't go far
Not knowing one day he'll grow up to be a movie star

Chorus:
Got to hold your head up high if you're gonna see at all
Got to put your foot above the rest if you're gonna rise at all
Got to spread your wings and fly if you don't want to fall
'Cause it's the road that you choose that'll take you through it all

Now that kid has grown up to be that movie star
Seemed like yesterday people told him he couldn't go far
Tonight's his big premiere; he's got tons of fans
Next week he's on the late show with David Letterman

Chorus

He's older now, he's got grey hair and all
He's got two teenage kids, John and Paul
One of them is having the same problems he did too
He just says son hold on here's what you've got to do

Chorus
