      Lightnin' Hopkins - Happy Blues For John Glenn Música y Letra

      People I was sittin' this mornin' with this on my mind
      Said there ain't no livin' man who gone around the world three time
      But John Glenn did
      Yes he did
      He did it, I'm talkin' about him
      Only did it for fun
      Half a million dollars made him feel so well
      He got to eatin' his lunch and couldn't hardly tell
      He said I feel all right
      John Glenn said it
      Everybody was laughin'
      And dipped in the gritty
      It was a million prayer went up
      Prayin' that he would land
      I looked at a schoolhouse full of men and they didn't know what to say
      But they said "Let him come back, God
      Please let him land
      You know that's the onliest man ever did it
      And you're the helpin' hand"
      I see'd him when he left but I didn't see him when he land
      But I knowed he was doin' all right when they said it is OK to give him a great big hand
      He'll be in on the ship
      They say he's on deck
      His mother say I know my son gonna make it, it ain't never been no mistake
      You know I wanna tell you somethin', this ain't lyin'
      You know that man must had on his mind flyin'
      It ain't nobody will take that for his tryin',
      unless they gonna build him his own self airplane and they gonna go flyin'
      They told him "Don't worry, this is true
      You may miss me for a few minutes but I'll be back to see about you" - He did!
      Yes he did
      Yes when he done it, didn't know what had happened the helicopter say -
      You know they tested that boy's body, even test his heart
      They knowed he was all right when he was gettin' to start
      I mean he's made it!
      He went around the world three times
      You know he went and got him an airplane,
