Woman hold her head and cry
'Cause her son had been shot down in the street and died
From the stray bullet (bullet)
A woman hold her head and cry
Explaining to her was a passer-by
Who saw the woman cry (cry)
Wondering
How can she work it out?
Now she knows that the wagers of sin is dead
The gift of Jah is life (life)

She cried
Oh, 
Johnny was a good man, oh
Never did a thing wrong, oh yeah
Johnny was a good man
She cried

Woman hold her head and cry
'Cause her son had been shot down in the street and died
From the same, the system
A woman hold her head and cry
Comforting her, I was passing by
She complained and then she cried
She cried

Oh, oh, Lord (Johnny was a good man)
Can the woman turn to care, she cried (never did a thing wrong)
Sister was a child she bear
Someone is guilty, someone is guilty (Johnny was a good man)
Someone is guilty (never did a thing wrong)
Johnny been shot down in the street
All because of the system (Johnny was a good man)
What good is it? What good is it?
Johnny go, Johnny was, Johnny, Johnny was
Oh, oh (never did a thing wrong)
Mama cries, she cries
Mama cried, Johnny was a good man (Johnny was a good man)
The gift of Jah is life (never did a thing wrong)
The gift of Jah is life (Johnny was a good man)
The gift of God is life 
Johnny was a good man
Never did a thing wrong
Johnny was a good man, cry

Woman hold her head and cried
'Cause her son had been shot down in the street and died
From the same system
A woman hold her head and cried
Comforting her, I was passing by
She complained and then she fight
She cried

Oh, oh, Lord (Johnny was a good man)
Can the woman turn to care, she cried (never did a thing wrong)
Sister was a child she bear
Someone is guilty, someone is guilty
Someone is guilty 
Johnny been shot down in the street
All because of the system 
What good is it?
What good is it?
Johnny go, Johnny was, Johnny, Johnny was
Oh, oh 
Mama cries, she cries
Mama cried, Johnny was a good man
The gift of Jah is life
