They Took John Away - Dusty Springfield/The Springfields

Written by:Sharp

They took John away this mornin'

 

They took John away this mornin'

 

They took John away this mornin'

 

And he ain't comin' home no more

He ain't comin' home no more

Now John was a hard working fella

 

Who shove a coal from mourn till dusk

He was married

To a girl named Stella

In no me place by the spent and her

Stella was a half line woman

Who didn't care about settling down

So and John went to work each mornin'

That when Stella starts messing around

That's the reason why they took John away this mornin'

 

They took John away this mornin'

They took John away this mornin'

And he ain't comin' home no more

He ain't comin' home no more

Now John got a postman letter

 

And it said Stella was so true

She was frightened with a toll together

Oh her mother and fast and low

While John was digging in that cave man

 

I woke up like a lumber jack

 

Now Stella was making woopy

 

Stella making a bull jike

That's the reason why they took John away this mornin'

 

They took John away this mornin'

 

They took John away this mornin'

 

And he ain't comin' home no more

He ain't comin' home no more

 

While John left the cave man holy

He took the car valley he me back home

But the shadows in the hollow window

 

Tell Stella wasn't home alone

So seeking in the back board screen door

While I'm alone the looking fire

And the smoke cleared the way

Dear brothers

 

John was the only one alive

That's the reason why they took John away this mornin'

 

They took John away this mornin'

They took John away this mornin'

And he ain't comin' home no more

He ain't comin' home no more

Cause' he'd had his first date on prison

Cause' he'd had his first date on prison

Cause' he'd had his first date on prison

 

And he ain't comin' home

No more
