I’ve got a smile

I may be a dreamer



I may be a cynic

I might be boring as hell

But I’ve got a smile!

I worship old Willie

I dig Steve McQueen

I might be the sorriest

Most contradictory

Or even luckiest bastard

There ever has been


by Maik



I die laughing at Laurel & Hardy

Luv Roger Miller and Kris

I pray for Stephen Bruton

When playing the records of his

Somehow I love my life

I sure got a smile!

I love Clint Eastwood’s movies

And I cry at John Ford’s

Love my beer on Sunday morning

And loafing on the porch

And I smoke Willie’s dope only

When a good gal’s around

I’m a child of the forest

I spend nights by the river

I have rattlers for supper

And fancy some crocodile

I get stoned on stinging nettles

Lord, I’ve got a smile!

I’ve got a smile
