Asta Kask – Johnny Boy lyrics

He went to the saloon with his stetson on his head
He went to the bar, to the bartender he said
- Give me a double whiskey 'cos I'm feeling very bad
I've lost my gun, my horse is dead and I almost lost my head

The bartender said: - I've seen you before
The last time you were here you kicked in my door
Then you hanged the sheriff and robbed the bank
And then you shot Gunpowder Hank

OH JOHNNY BOY, A REAL COWBOY
PRETTY GOOD WITH HIS GUN
OH JOHNNY BOY, A REAL COWBOY
THE BEST GUN FIGHTER IN TOWN

Suddenly he felt a gun against his head
The bartender said: - Now you're almost dead
Because I'm the sheriff in this town and Hank was my friend
Poor Johnny Boy, you soon will be hanged

So now Johnny Boy is buried at Boot Hill
He was a cold blooded murderer and now he has paid his bill
The man who took his life was called sheriff Gay Cock Bill
The boyfriend of Gunpowder Hank that Johnny Boy killed

OH JOHNNY BOY, A REAL COWBOY
PRETTY GOOD WITH HIS GUN
OH JOHNNY BOY, A REAL COWBOY
THE BEST GUN FIGHTER IN TOWN
