the marcy brothers – everybody needs a hero lyrics

Loading...

he drove a ’47 buick special
those dusty roads were h+ll on the shine
and about once a week, he’d be down at the creek
and i’d help him wash it sometimes
he had a gold tooth and a gold watch
and a gold chain that hung on his chest
he drank a little and he gambled a lot
he was a wild one, i guess

oh, but everybody needs a hero
savannah slim was mine
when you’re ten years old down in south georgia
heroes are hard to find
yeah

lord, how he loved country music
he played an old gibson guitar
in a roadhouse one night, he was called on to fight
somebody pushed him too far
so he served a little time in prison
but he served four long years in the war
he was in the pacific when he got his tattoo
two hearts in blue on his arm

oh, but everybody needs a hero
savannah slim was mine
when you’re ten years old down in south georgia
heroes are hard to find
now mama says i turned out just like him
she worries and prays that i’ll change
but i didn’t know ’til a few days ago
why he sent me his gold watch and chain

oh, but everybody needs a hero
savannah slim was mine
when you’re ten years old down in south georgia
heroes are hard to find
yeah, heroes are hard to find
