Lyrics

Johnny T

V1
What do you do now that Johnny T is gone
Up the river at the Chino prison in a space made for one
He was my first friend. We owned the block we ran on
He chose a crooked career direction and he’s locked up for years.

V2
Another Saturday night the boys were out on the prowl.
There was something mean in the air that night.
I could feel it going down
With one hand on the wife and the other on a gun
That man lie there bleeding, Johnny watched just for fun
He Says, it’s a damn good thing , then Johnny runs.

Chorus
You chose the road you ride on
You pick the time to pass
You choose your midnight danger, and you hope it will last
You act out your chosen game
You play the part you're cast
You better choose wisely mister
Because you can't choose your past

V3
You always had my eye when Johnny, you and I would run
I think deep inside you knew you chose the wrong one
Even though you’re married now to Johnny
You're going to get that longing
And I'm here to do what Johnny can't get done.

Chorus
You choose the road you ride on
You pick the time to pass
You choose a worthy lover. You know it won’t last
You act out your chosen game
You play the part you're cast
You better choose wisely sister
Because you can't choose your past

V4
The other night I showed up at your place way after dark
Waited in that car and thought about what Johnny T might say
Would he understand he's a memory now
Probably not. I don't know. I don't care anyhow
It’s a damn good thing Johnny T is gone

V5
I sat in the quiet of my Camaro wondering how this plays out
Will you choose to take a turn or just turn me away
Then the porch life comes on, the screen door slams. So long.
you dash out in pretty pink chiffon
You say, it’s a damn good thing Johnny T is gone

Chorus
One day you might follow him
But now see where you sit
We’ll take the back roads. It’s easy money
You'll see what we get
Just one last job for us
And we can finally move on
It’s a damn good thing
Johnny T is gone
Oh Baby, It’s a damn good thing
Johnny T is gone
