Heroes or bad guys, they played them all,
These stars of the movies, where are they now.?
A man named Cagney, Edward G. Robinson too,
John Garfield, Audie Murphy was quite a hero.
Jack Palance, a tough man for sure,
John Wayne,” the duke” was a man of strength.
Clint Walker and Richard Boone, big as can be,

Kirk Douglas and Burt Lancaster, the talent of two.
Yul Brynner, magnificent a star, Robert Mitchum bad or good,
Sean Connery, accent with a gun, George Peppard, blue eyes and tough.
Tall and mean, Clint Eastwood and a lifetime of movies,
Lee Van Cleefe, a man with a glare, Steve McQueen, big on the screen.
Jack Nicholson, Peter Fonda, and Dennis Hopper on their riding machines,
Tommy Lee Jones and Robert Duvall, they played the hero, they did it all.
Robert Ryan or Robert Taylor back in the day, tough some would say,
