Lonesome Johnny Blues Lyrics

Lonesome Johnny Blues - Cracker/Leftover Salmon

Well lucky number seven passed me by

 

Lucky number seven called my name and passed on by

 

He came back don't you know

With his brother six in tow

That is how number thirteen wound up by my side

 

And that is how I got these lonesome Johnny Blues

 

How I got these lonesome Johnny Blues

 

Got the lonesome Johnny Blues

And there's nothing I can do

'Cept sing these sad old weary lonesome Johnny Blues

Here we go

 

Grim reaper he pulled up into my drive

 

Grim reaper pulled his big black chevrolet

Right up onto my drive

 

Say Johnny I haven't come for you

But I want someone who's dear to you

The price you pay is to remain alive

 

And I'll stay here with these lonesome Johnny Blues

 

Stay here with these lonesome Johnny Blues

 

With the lonesome Johnny Blues

And there's nothing I can do

'Cept sing these sad old weary lonesome Johnny Blues

 

Woah no more trouble send him down the road won't you please

No more trouble won't you beat him up won't you send him down the road

 

Trouble dumped out the trash

Ransacked my place for cash

And he wound up taking much more than I own

 

And he left me with these lonesome Johnny Blues

 

Left me with these lonesome Johnny Blues

 

With the lonesome Johnny Blues

And there's nothing I can do

'Cept sing these sad old weary lonesome Johnny Blues

 

Now I got these lonesome Johnny Blues

 

Now I got these lonesome Johnny Blues

 

I got lonesome Johnny Blues

And there's nothing I can do

'Cept sing these sad old weary lonesome Johnny Blues

Johnny Blues

Sad old weary lonesome Johnny Blues

Johnny Blues

 

Sad old weary lonesome Johnny Blues
