Buckskin Jones Illegitimate Son Lyrics

BUCK SKIN JONES’ ILLEGITIMATE SON

HE WAS A SINGIN’ COWBOY
OF THE SILVER SCREEN
MY MAMA GOT HIS AUTOGRAPH
IN 1963
SHE WAS YOUNG
AND SHE WAS STARSTRUCK
THEY HAD A ONE NIGHT STAND.
BUT HE DIED RIGHT AFTER FAN FAIR ON A TRAIN TO BIRMINGHAM.

SHE TOOK ME OUT TO SEE HIM
AT A DRIVE IN PICTURE SHOW.
I SAT THERE EATIN’ MILK DUDS WATCHIN’ “LAND OF THE NAVAJO”.
SHE SMILED WHEN HE CAUGHT THE BAD GUY, AND RODE OFF WITH THE GIRL.
I WANTED TO BE JUST LIKE HIM,
THE GREATEST COWBOY
IN THE WORLD.

CHORUS
SHE KEPT THAT AUTOGRAPHED PICTURE ON TOP OF THE TV.
I REMEMBER MY NEIGHBOR SAYIN’ HOW MUCH HE LOOKED LIKE ME.
WHEN I WAS OLD ENOUGH
SHE TOLD ME WHO MY DADDY WAS.
SHE SAID I WAS BUCK SKIN JONES’ ILLEGITIMATE SON.

THEY CALLED IN ALL THE FAMILY
THEY DAY MY MAMA DIED.
AND EVERYBODY WONDERED
WHY I BARELY CRIED.
I KNEW SHE WAS UP IN HEAVEN,
AND THAT’S A PRETTY GOOD PLACE TO BE.
SHE’S FINALLY WITH THE MAN SHE LOVES, AND THAT’S ALRIGHT WITH ME.
