Sentimental johnny Lyrics

Sentimental johnny by Flogging Molly  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Sentimental johnny I’m goin’ back to Sentimental Johnny 
Cause Sentimental Johnny is your man 
Sunshine or rain, the man’s on his game 
The Chairman of the boards 
He said Jesus, he walks on water 
Not like us, he must have been sober 
Marching away, on top of his lake 
The Savior of all souls

Leave me to die in the wreckage 
As soon as it burns, I’ll be gone 
I’m goin’ back to Sentimental Johnny (what for?) 
To take in all I can (once more!) 
To take in all I can (once more!)

Well it was back in good ol’ 57 
When Johnny met Elvis in Memphis 
Rockin’ on sun 
Where it all begun 
A story yet to end 
And by this time, we’re drinkin’ up a fever 
And in me, he has a true believer 
If only I could, just for one word 
To live it all again

Leave me to die in the wreckage 
As soon as it burns, I’ll be gone 
I’m goin’ back to Sentimental Johnny (what for?) 
To take in all I can (once more!) 
To take in all I can (once more!)

Rio, why don’t you meet me down in Rio… again 
Down in Rio, the carnival it never ends 
Down in Rio, we’ll find a perfect world in Rio… again 
Down in Rio, where the women still love their men

Well Johnny, it’s two in the mornin’ 
Don’t you think, it’s time we should go 
Back to our millions of records we love 
Back to our sad little homes 
That was the last time I saw him 
Never, no never no more 
I wonder did Jesus, came to redeem him 
Save poor Johnny’s ol’ soul 
I wonder did Jesus, come to redeem him 
Save poor Johnny’s ol’ soul

Leave me to die in the wreckage 
As soon as it burns, I’ll be gone 
I’m goin’ back to Sentimental Johnny (what for?)
To take in all I can (once more!)
To take in all I can (once more!)
