Pappy Johnson

lyrics

Well I asked for Pappy Johnson, and they told me he was dead
I asked just who done it, but they looked at me and stared

I don't remember, what I did last night
My head is pounding, and I woke up with that fright
Oh Pappy Johnson, who done took your life

I saw the village doctor, and he looked me in the eye
he asked me what had happened, why the innocent had died

I don't remember, what I did last night
My head is pounding, and I woke up with that fright
Oh Pappy Johnson, who done took your life

Well I saw Gavin Farrel, he's the owner of the pub
he told me that they shot him, left him face down in the mud

I don't remember, what I did last night
My head is pounding, and I woke up with that fright
Oh Pappy Johnson, who done took your life

And then I saw the Sheriff and I asked him if he knew,
He looked at me and said, "Jimmy, I believe it was you!"

I don't remember, what I did last night
My head is pounding, and I woke up with that fright
Oh Pappy Johnson....

I done took your life.
