When Johnny Comes Walking Home

This song was created for Game of Bands round 103 : "Under the Influence"

Lyrics:


I heard the promise of the rails whispered sweetly in my ear Another job, another jail, another town, another year Wore my best suit as I fled, the only one I’d ever owned Bought it for a girl to wed- for a girl I’d never known It makes you a little better and them a little worse Cause every sip’s the devil’s share, an empty bottle is his curse Don’t turn those amber eyes on me, there’s malt and barley in your stare and a feeling where I’m fleeing, coal and steam can’t get me there Out the window still’s are steaming, moonshine burns but doesn’t glow And there’s noises that aint steel-on-iron coming from below Now let’s get a little louder now, let’s get a little worse Cause every sip’s the devil’s share, an empty bottle is his curse Once the the promise of the rails was the hope I’d hoped to find in The town now drawing out of view, same as all the town’s I’ve died in I’m only happy when I’m drowning, when it’s much too far to fall Past that Red Label Warning- raise your glasses one and all It makes them a little better and you a little worse So get your throat a little wetter, friend; and we’ll flee the devil’s curse

[Exit]
