The Johnson Boys - Dusty Springfield
Johnson boys was raised in the ashes
Didn't know how to court a maid
Turn their backs and hid their faces
Sight of a pretty girl makes them afraid
Johnson boys they come a courtin'
The Coon Creek girls so pretty and sweet
They couldn't make no conversation
Didn't know where to put their feet
Johnson boys they went a courtin'
Ridin' in a chevrolet
They come home broke and a walkin'
They had no money for to pay their way
Johnson boys eat and honey
They have done it all of their life
Make the peas taste mighty funny
But it keeps them on the knife
Johnson boys will never get married
They'll live single all of their life
They're too scared to pop the question
There ain't no woman that'll be their wife
Shame shame on the Johnson boys
