The Letter That Johnny Walker Read by Asleep At The Wheel


Johnny Walker sat at a table in a bar
Mindin' his own affairs
Drinkin' his namesake over the rocks
Gettin' drunk, too drunk to care
When a girl in the bar walked up beside him
And this is what she said
She said a woman came by with a letter for you
And this is what the letter said
Dear John
Please, Johnny, please come home
I need your love, and the kids, they gotta be fed
And John
If you don't hurry back, I'll be gone
Yes, that's what the letter said
The letter that Johnny Walker read
Then John, he got up from the table
Slowly, he walked outside
He was thinkin' of his wife and little children at home
And how his drinkin' had ruined their lives
Then John, he stared off into that streetlight
And a vision filled his poor, poor heart with dread
For it was him lyin' drunk there in that gutter
Clutchin' in his hand the letter that Johnny Walker read
And this is what it said
Dear John
Please, Johnny, please come home
I need your love, and the kids, they gotta be fed
And John
If you don't hurry back, I'll be gone
Yes, that's what the letter said
The letter that Johnny Walker read
Dear John
Please, Johnny, please come home
I need your love, and the kids, they gotta be fed
And John
If you don't hurry back, I'll be gone
