MARION MICHAEL MORRISON (C.W. Kalb Jr.) Ray Stevens - 1989 He was born in the little farming town of Winterset On The New Frontier, a mid-west native son But his star would shine as bright as any star can ever get And he would Cast A Giant Shadow before he was done Tall In The Saddle, he went to Reap The Wild Wind In Old California and across the Rio Grande >From Stagecoach on The Big Trail to Rio Bravo and back again He rode on Wings Of Eagles, this Quiet Man Here's to you, Marion Michael Morrison Here's to you for all our battles that you fought and won A true American hero, a straight-shootin' son-of-a-gun Here's to you, Marion Michael Morrison Singin' Sandy, Sergeant Stryker, McLintock and McQ Katie's Elder Son and Big Jim McLean Brannigan and Rooster, Hondo and Big Jake Yeah, we knew him by a hundred different names On the Sands Of Iwo Jima, Back To Bataan The Flying Tigers and The Green Berets He was with The Fighting Seabees and ev'ry American fighting man At The Alamo and on that Longest Day And here's to you, Marion Michael Morrison Here's to you for all our battles that you fought and won A true American hero, a straight-shootin' son-of-a-gun Here's to you, Marion Michael Morrison There might be a few who would dare to say The star you hung might fade away But I can hear you tell 'em "Pilgrim, that'll be the day" Here's to you, Marion Michael Morrison Here's to you for all our battles that you fought and won A true American hero, a straight-shootin' son-of-a-gun Here's to you, Marion Michael Morrison Here's to you, Marion Michael Morrison (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - August 2010)
