Johnny Red Lyrics

Blacktop Mojo – Johnny Red Lyrics

Headed out in the moonlight
You’ll find him there
A different man walks these streets
When there’s a bottle in his hand
He’s out talking with his demons
They’re swimming round up in his head
He hears laughter from the corner
Smoke and fire, hot burning lead

Here he comes seeing red
He’ll wind up black and blue again
Harmless words from a strangers mouth
Put the fire in his head
You better watch out
The word in town
He’s the man that shot Johnny down
Run your mouth
Wind up dead
He’s the man who shot Johnny Red

On the streets he walks alone
A man with no name
They never saw his face
Hollow eyes filled with pain
He’s worn out like a tin roof
Seen too much rain
He sits down in the bar room
And drives himself insane


They say he was on a whiskey binge
The law could find no proof
Who killed that man lying in the street
But 80 devils sing the truth
