the Ballad of JaMarcus Russell | by Jay

Did you know LSU has a living, breathing folk tale starting at quarterback?

To the tune of Johnny Yuma, by Johnny Cash...

JaMarcus Russell

was a tiger
He roamed through the South
JaMarcus Russell, of the bayou
He wandered alone

He searched the land
This giant lad
He was twelve yards high

And two lanes wide
and sixty-two tons
of Cajun pride
The tiger, JaMarcus Russell

(Repeat 1st verse)

He got fightin' mad
This bengal lad
Went on the attack
As a quarterback
Where the only law
Was to throw the ball
The tiger, JaMarcus Russell

(Repeat 1st verse)

Fightin' mad
This giant lad
With a dream he'd hold
'Til his dyin' breath
He'd search his soul
And gamble with death
The tiger, Jamarcus Russell
