Johnny Porter was the oldest in his family 
And I remember he was almost twenty one 
Y'know I can't quite explain the situation 
But he broke into
Johnny says he's bound by only six stirngs to this world
Johnny says he keeps them always one turn out of tune
Johnny never listens to the kids that
Things to do when angry, young and bored

Johnny was only a lad
Johnny hates the scene
First he hit an old man
Then he hit and run Pauline
The record
They told us where to go

But Johnny said, "I like 'em
Don't you give them no trash"
You see, we were Johnny's little boys
And we got paid by Cash
They told us where to go

But Johnny said, "I like 'em
Don't you give them no trash"
You see, we were Johnny's little boys
And we got paid by Cash
I saw a star spangled banner yet wave

I, I, I cry, I cry
I was born in a land, I don't think you understand
God damn, what I am
I'm a native of this
I saw a star spangled banner yet wave

I, I, I, I, I, I, I, I cry, I cry
I was born in a land, I don't think you understand
God damn, what I am
I saw a star spangled banner yet wave

I, I, I, I, I, I, I, I cry, I cry
I was born in a land, I don't think you understand
God damn, what I am
I saw a star spangled banner yet wave

I, I, I, I, I, I, I, I cry, I cry
I was born in a land, I don't think you understand
God damn, what I am
Johnny was born today
And he's gonna be the one to find us a better way
(a better way, a better way…) (Y.A., help me sing…)
He's gonna need a little
Johnny was bashful and shy. 
Nobody understood why, 
Mary loved him, 
All the other girls passed him by. 
Every one wanted to know
How she could
Johnny was bashful and shy. 
Nobody understood why, 
Mary loved him, 
All the other girls passed him by. 
Every one wanted to know
How she could
[1st verse:]
Johnny was bashful and shy
Nobody understood why 
Mary loved him
All the other girls passed him by
Everyone wanted to know
How she
a-weeping
For your Johnny gone to sea?
If you wed with me tomorrow
I'll be by you constantly.

I will buy you clothes and blankets
I'll buy you
sisters side by side
The eldest for young johnny cried
I'll be true for my love
If he'll be true to me

Johnny bought the youngest a gay gold ring,
He
Johnny Ryall is the bum on my stoop
I gave him fifty cents to buy some soup
He knows the time with the fresh Gucci watch
He's even more over than
the band
I don't really understand
Why it's gonna rain on me again?
Baby, was I born with bad luck?
My heart's been hit by a truck
Troubled sky clears
listened to him real closely.
This is what he said.
'You was born for good luck, Johnny.'
'Bad luck can't do you no harm.'
'You was born for good luck.'

I woke up in Johnny`s room mama
Standing right there by his bed
With my hands around his throat mama
Wishing both of us were dead

You think
I listened to him real closely.
This is what he said.

'Bad luck can't do you no harm.'

Standing right there by his bed 
With my hands around his throat mama 
Wishing both of us were dead

I knew every single record the DJ's played
A honky tonk a Hound Dog, a Johnny B. Goode
Chain Gang, Love Is Strange, Knock On Wood

out.
What made her do it, why'd she freak out?
I saw the bullet had got her right in the ear.
I knew then the end was near. 

So I ran down and said
in all I can (once more!)

Well, it was back in good old '57
When Johnny met Elvis in Memphis 
Rockin' on sun where it all begun 
A story yet
in all I can (once more!)
