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
to my cold steel ring"

John Henry, he hammered in the mountains
His hammer was striking fire
But he worked so hard; it broke his heart
John Henry
to live by, and that's all that I know 

If it ain't real, fake it! 
If it ain't yours, take it! 
If it don't exist, you make it! 
If it ain't broke
(chorus) then (*riff)

(bridge)
Bm see bm see
Standing in the rain you pass by, don't even remember my name

But baby, baby, this ain't no place for fame
John Henry and they told me if they let me read this old book I'd
Probably write a song about it. 
And they did and I did and I called it more About
If it ain't broke don't fix it,
Mama, I love that stuff.
That's why I'm confessin to you, babe,
We've got to fix this up.

I've been all over
hammer be the death of me, Lord, Lord
Said hammer be the death of me

When John Henry's fam'ly needed money,
Said he didn't have but a dime
If you
too original (original)
Baby, just stay classic
Ain't broke, ain't broke, don't fix it
Your highs, your lows, just ride it

It's a pendulum, it all
buy me a T-bone steak
And if I fix it like he tell me, he'll give me a Cadillac Eight
That's what my baby likes, that's what my baby likes
He's crazy
anything they do or say
They give their word
But it ain't worth very much these days
Maybe I'm old school, behind the times
But I still believe if a man
work you know you owe me too much to stop
John said I got a little working to do but I ain't goin' by your clock

People said John was a slacker cause
ain't real, fake it!
If it ain't yours, take it!
If it don't exist, you make it!
If it ain't broke, break it!

If it ain't real, fake it!
If it
that hammer, It'll do anything you tell it to."

John Henry's mammy had about a dozen babies
John Henry's pappy broke jail about a dozen times
The babies
too late
So if something is broke
Let me go and fix it
And if something is lost
Let me go and get it
Cause I don't wanna stand when all is done
Can you feel, I wanna heal, wanna build, wanna fix what's broke baby
(What must I do)
It can only make us stronger baby, if we don't let it break us
too late
So if something is broke, let me go and fix it
And if something is lost, let me go and get it

'Cause I don't wanna stand when all is done
verse]

No parking by the sewer sign
Hotdog my razor broke
Water dripping up the spout
But (hey) I don't care - let it all hang out

Hanging from
John Henry said to his captain said "A man ain't nothin' but a man
But if you'll bring that steamdrill 'round I'll beat it fair and honest.
I'll die
John Henry said to his captain said "A man ain't nothin' but a man
But if you'll bring that steamdrill 'round I'll beat it fair and honest.
I'll die
mad 'cause you broke, let me clear my throat
John Forte grab the mic, roots sway it this way

I more than just a rhymer you still a small timer
Hopin'
Lord

Listen to my cold steel ring"

John Henry he hammered
in the mountains
His hammer was striking fire
But he worked so hard;
it broke his
If it ain't broke don't fix it
If it ain't gone don't miss it
If you believe it's love then don't let them change your mind
Try to find a deeper
livin' proof that ain't right

We work a long day
Sunup to payday
For a life this big
If you're broke don't fix it
Learn to live with it
And like it
Written by John Barlow/Delbert McClinton 1990
I found her number, and the note she wrote
Deep in the pocket, of a real old coat
It just got by me
get on the whiskey
Let somebody else drive

I said, when on the Crown whiskey
Let somebody else drive
Why don't you let John Anderson drive, oh,
