Johnny Cash

"The Last Of The Drifters"

[Verse 1]
I'm the last of the babies of the World War 2
World War 2 and that's the one we didn't lose, I heard that
I was raised on biscuits, Spam and powdered eggs
DiMaggio's baseball and Marilyn's legs

[Chorus]
And I'm the last of the drifters
Last of the drifters, yeah

[Verse 2]
I remember when the great train, they used to run on coal
And they would run on coal and I would be ready to go, me too
Old white shirt and a tired overall
Sometime I think my daddy knew it all

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
I remember Louisiana in a hot steamy night
Hot steamy night and she was holding me tight
An old red Chevy with a big back seat
I had me some two tall shoes off my feet

[Chorus]

[Verse 4]
I'm a world war baby holding mama's hand
Mama's hand and how my daddy knew the land
Truck bearing music and poverty and wealth
I got some great big scars on myself

[Chorus]

[Verse 5]
I'm the last tie roller with the last good hand
Last good hand and I'm a gambling man
All them bombs and people waking on that boom
Sometimes I reckon I got here too soon

[Chorus] [x2]
