That dang Glen Campbell

John Wayne's 1969 picture "True Grit" is on late this afternoon and while I've never seen it in its entirety, I sure liked the opening music. From composer Elmer Bernstein and lyricist Don Black, the title song True Grit was sung by Glen Campbell, of course.

One day, little girl, the sadness will leave your face
As soon as you've won the fight to get justice done
Someday little girl you'll wonder what life's about
But other's have known few battles are won alone
So, you'll look around to find
Someone who's kind, someone who is fearless like you
The pain of it will ease a bit
When you find a man with true grit

One day you will rise and you won't believe your eyes
You'll wake up and see,
A world that is fine and free
Though summer seems far away
You will find the sun one day
