Ay Johnny

R)
I saw a movie one time,
it starred Gregory Peck

and your fall-by-the sword
love affair with Errol Flynn,

I said “Oh, no! no! I’ve been through
this movie before.”

O)
All I really wanna do,
(sittin’ on a barbed wire fence),

singin’ love’s praises, I sung
the song slowly.

C)
I’m on the pavement (muttering small
talk at the wall), only sighing:

I can walk around the block,
anytime.

K)
I see my light come shining,
got my back to the sun,

sick and tired of the war,
got a new pony and I’ll lie

in my bed, once again.

A)
My name it is nothing by the name of Priest;
they asked me what my name was,

his name wasn’t Henry Porter,
I said “Captain Kidd”,

but I feel just like a Jesse James.

D)
I was young when I left home,
I’ll be a long time gone

walkin’ down the line,
that long lonesome road, babe—

I can’t help it if I’m lucky.
