JOHNSONS LOVE

Verse 1
G                                            C   D
She had left him lost and broken
                                G
Like no other had before
                                             C      D
And now his heart was just a token
                               G
Of the pain it had endured
                                        C      D
And his memories were clouded
                                                G
With all the hurtful things she'd said
                                    C       D
Yes fer all intent and purpose
                                        G
He might just as well been dead

Chorus
                            D                     C                     G
And some people claim they still hear him call her name
                    D                       C                      G
Hey hey Maureen swear they hear him just that plain
                    D           C                          G
Deep in the night and sometimes right at dawn
            C
See his body died some years ago
            D                                      G
Around here Mr Johnsons love lives on

Verse 2
                                       C        D
He seemed far away and distant
                                     G
With that cold and silent stare
                                C          D
Never moving, never speaking
                                      G
And just barely breathing air
                                    C       D
No one really knew her reason
                                             G
And who can judge her right or wrong
                                      C       D
The only true and solomn fact is
                                                G
The man we'd known was all but gone

Chorus

Verse 3
                                           C           D
Sissy Thompson said she'd seen him
                                      G
Late that night on Shelby road
                                            C             D
About a mile from there they found him
                                        G
It seems he died out in the snow
                                        C           D
I hear'd the preacher at the service
                                     G
Say from love he's finally free
                                      C            D
But I say love it knows no season
                                  G
It haunts the soul eternally

Chorus
                    C                                        D
G
Yes his body died some years ago around here Mr. Johnsons love lives on...
