SONG OF THE PATRIOT
(written by Marty Robbins)
recorded by Johnny Cash with Marty as backup

I'm a God fearing patriotic, nephew of my Uncle Sam.
A rough riding, fighting Yankee man.
I love mom and apple pie, and the freedom that we all enjoy
across this beautiful land.
I work hard and I'd fight hard for the old red, white and blue.
And I'll die a whole lot harder if it come whre I'd have to.
I'm a flag waving patriotic nephew of my Uncle Sam.
A rough riding figthing Yankee man.

(Chorus, with Marty)
And when I see old glory waving, I think of all the brave men
who had fought and died for what is right and wrong.
And when I see old glory burning, by blood begins to churning
and I could do some fighting of my own.
(Johnny alone)
I don't belie in violence, I'm a God fearing man.
But I'd stand up for my country just as long as I could stand.
(Johnny & Marty)
'Cause I'm a flag wavinng patriotic nephew of my Uncle Sam.
A rough riding fighting Yankee man.

(Johnny)
I'm a flag waving patriotic nephew of my Uncle Sam.
A rough riding fighting Yankee man.
I enjoy the liberty of being what I want to be, and achieving any goal that I can.
I was taught to turn the other cheek, but Teddy used to say,
"Walk soft and pack a big stick, but never walk away!"
And I'm a flag waving patriotic nephew of my Uncle Sam.
A rough riding fighting Yankee man.

(Johnny & Marty)
And when I see old glory waving, I think of all the brave men
who had fought and died for what is right and wrong.
And when I see Old Glory burning, my blood begins to churning
and I could do some fighting of my own.

(Johnny)
"Cause I love all my brothers and wee're proud of our birth.
We've got the greatest country here on God's green earth
(Johnny & Marty)
And I'm a flag waving patriotic nephew of my Uncle Sam
A rough riding fighting Yankee man.

(** Marty took this song to Johnny for him to record. Johnny said 'yes' but only if Marty would sing back up. He agreed)
