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


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


They knowed he was all right when he was gettin' to


I mean he's made it

He went around the world three times

You know he went and got him an airplane

And he made up and had it on his mind

That's what he had on his mind

He didn't have no kid and he didn't have no digs

He just had it in his mind flyin'
