Lyrics
Poor Johnny 2021 Reggie Miles All rights reserved Poor Johnnys dead and gone to the other side Poor Johnnys dead and gone to the other side Poor Johnnys dead and gone All he left was this ol song And we sang it all night long as we cried They laid poor Johnny down in his grave They laid poor Johnny down in his grave They laid poor Johnny down And all the vultures gathered round To see what could be found they might crave They picked his body clean where he lay They picked poor Johnny clean where he lay They picked poor Johnny clean Till nuthin more they could glean And it was such a gory scene to go that way Poor Johnnys dead and gone to the other side Poor Johnnys dead and gone to the other side Poor Johnnys dead and gone And we cried the whole night long All he left was this ol song when he died
