Tommy brown by Sonny James  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Tommy brown All my life I knew Tommy Brown we grew up together in the same hometown
I never thought Tommy was such a bad guy
But folks would always whispered when he walked by
Tom Tom Tommy Brown meanest boy in all the town
Everybody said he'd turned out bad they said he had stole and I guess he had
But nobody offerend him a helping hand they just went and said over again
Oh Tom Tom Tommy Brown meanest boy in all the town
I loved a girl named Betty Lou strange thing was Tom loved her too
She was kind to him and seemed to understand
That if somebody loved him he could be a man
The three of us were the best of friends
And stuck together through thick and thin
But we all knew that the time would come
She'd have to choose between me and Tom
Oh Tom Tom Tommy Brown meanest boy in all the town
Then came Pearl Harbor and the war was on
I answered the call and so did Tom
When we laughed at Betty we would plainly see
She had made her choise and the guy was me
We landed in Hadley the fighting was hard
Many were dying and the rest were tired
Every man there gave his very best but who was the one that I'd fought to rest
Tom Tom Tommy Brown bravest boy in all the town
We were both in a fox hole the bullets were flying
When an enemy soldier slipped up behind
He aimed at me but Tom acted fast he jumped between and I heard the blast
I got the soldier too late I could see
Cause Tom stopped the bullet that was meant for me
His body crumpled the smoke cleared away
And it seemed to me he had a smile on his face
So Tom Tom Tommy Brown bravest boy in all the town
We burried him there and left across the sea
Where I wrote these words he died for me
And nobody knew but the one of us he died to save the boy she loved
Tom Tom Tommy Brown bravest boy in all the town
Tom Tom Tommy Brown bravest boy in all the town
