Eli Van Sickel Cover

I'm sitting here in Clinton,
Watching the cars go by
And when I see what the people are doing
It makes me wonder why.
Is it because I'm faithful?
Is it because I'm strange?
Sometimes I feel I'm in the movies
Just like John Wayne.

I don't have a girl,
Never had one to speak of.
Some people I know give their girls the world
And all the time they call it love.
But I don't believe in that.
I don't believe it's real.
Sometimes I feel I'm like John Wayne,
With the Mexicans, making a deal.

I'm sitting here in Clinton,
Watching the sun go down.
And when I look at this world I'm in
It doesn't make me frown.
Cause I know there is bad things,
But there is also good.
Sometimes I feel like I'm riding the range
Like John Wayne
