Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Our Boy Johnny

This song was created for Game of Bands round 113 : "Once Upon a Time in the West"

Lyrics:

Johnny came to town walking solo and destitue
Started work for rachcers doing all he knew to do
Slashing this and storing that and sowing all the fields
But poor old Johnny never saw profits from the yields

Johnny's dead, johnny's dead
Johnny's dead, johnny's dead
He worked his life away, johnny's passed away
No one here to miss him, Johnny's gone away

The work only stops for a moment and moves on
Until another johnny steps up and comes along
Slashing this and storing that and sowing all the fields
This new johnny will soon learn no profits from the yields

Johnny's dead, johnny's dead
Johnny's dead, johnny's dead
He worked his life away, johnny's passed away
No one here to miss him, Johnny's gone away

Maybe on another day, someone else will see
There is no yield coming out, without our man johnny
But that cold day may never come, this looks like him to me
A new young man is walking up, and he's the new johnny

Johnny's dead, johnny's dead
Johnny's dead, johnny's dead
He worked his life away, johnny's passed away
No one here to miss him, Johnny's gone away

Johnny's dead, johnny's dead
Johnny's dead, johnny's dead
He worked his life away, johnny's passed away
No one here to miss him, Johnny's gone away
[Exit]
