Walking The Line

The man I wanna be like ain’t no fake star
He’s got a box of frustrations that plays like a guitar
He gave me the whim, he gave me the blues, he walk with Jah
He’s a thousand men wrapped in granite rock

Cos I wanna be like Johnny Cash (woah)
Hair slicked back like a lightening flash
I wanna be like Johnny Cash (woah)
With a rocket snarl and pockets full of hash

He’s a man who can’t ever be broken
He’s said all there is that’s worth to be spoken
With a voice like Mississippi Delta mud
No matter how hard I try I ain’t never gonna be that good

Cos I wanna be like Johnny Cash (woah)
Hair slicked back like a lightening flash
I wanna be like Johnny Cash (woah)
Voice cracked like a whiplash

 

I’m gonna ride that train all the way down the line to Kingsland
To listen to the shiftin’ sand
Right down deep in the Delta bowl
I’m gonna try and get me a little bit of that soul

Cos I wanna be like Johnny Cash (woah)
Hair slicked back like a lightening flash
I wanna be like Johnny Cash (woah)
Hittin’ like a train crash

I wanna be like Johnny Cash (woah)
Hair slicked back like a lightening flash
I wanna be like Johnny Cash (woah)
Just rockin’ like a train crash
