VIDEO: Rick Neuheisel's awesome Johnny Manziel tribute song

By Chip Patterson | College Writer

Rick Neuheisel has been enjoyable to watch as an analyst on Pac-12 Network, but the former Bruins coach let his performance art shine on Monday's edition of the Dan Patrick Show with a country-western tribute song to Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel.

Neuheisel wrote new lyrics to Marty Robbins' classic country tune, El Paso. The parody song includes witty references to Manziel's off-field adventures, NCAA eligibility questions and on-field greatness.

Check out the video below, as well as a sample of Neuheisel's lyrics from the song.

Out in the badlands they call College Station,

Lived a young Aggie named Johnny Manziel.

Football and life to him were a bull ride,

He rode them both like a bat out of hell.

He shocked the nation by beating the best,

Flattening out the Tide.

The Heisman came calling, the agents came crawling;

But through it all Johnny Football did ride, ride, ride.

Now our young Aggie's no longer a hero, he was a target of public disdain;

Another victim of fame and fortune, "What's wrong with Johnny?" became the refrain.
