The Lyrics:
I'll be waiting in Jackson,
Behind my Japan fan.
June Carter is the one singing these particular lines. I've learned from repeatedly seeing it on karaoke monitors that the word is "Japan" here, so I suppose she means a Japanese fan. But she pronounces it "JAY - pan". For years I wondered what the heck she was saying and would have submitted it as a misheard lyric if I could have figured anything that it sounded like and had known the real lyrics.
