Johnny Boy (Acoustic version)

Born a cold November morning

Bright red hair, a true Liverpool boy

Under an Orleans Road lamplight

Shone our mothers pride and joy

Now years have gone by and I do my best to try and

Remember how it used to be

Those were the days my friend, I wish they’d never ended

So, come’n have a drink on me,

Here’s to …..

Old Johnny boy, Oh Johnny boy

Raise your glasses high

Raise them to the sky

Oh Johnny boy, Oh Johnny boy

Here’s to my brother, my best friend

I can see you now, rollin a cigarette,

Planning the revolution

‘The Crack’ was the place to be

Among the drunken disillusioned

Taken away, by the angels that day
Proving ‘only the good die young’
Taken away on the eve of your birthday
It’s over the fat lady’s sung

(Come back Johnny, come on, come back Johnny, come on come back Johnny boy)
