Flogging Molly – Sentimental Johnny lyrics

I'm goin' back to Sentimental Johnny
Cause Sentimental Johnny is your man
Sunshine or rain, the man's on his game
The Chairman of the boards
He said Jesus, he walks on water
Not like us, he must have been sober
Marching away, on top of his lake
The Savior of all souls

Leave me to die in the wreckage
As soon as it burns, I'll be gone
I'm goin' back to Sentimental Johnny (what for?)
To take in all I can (once more!)
To take in all I can (once more!)

Well it was back in good ol' 57
When Johnny met Elvis in Memphis
Rockin' on sun
Where it all begun
A story yet to end
And by this time, we're drinkin' up a fever
And in me, he has a true believer
If only I could, just for one word
To live it all again

Leave me to die in the wreckage
As soon as it burns, I'll be gone
I'm goin' back to Sentimental Johnny (what for?)
To take in all I can (once more!)
To take in all I can (once more!)

Rio, why don't you meet me down in Rioâ?¦ again
Down in Rio, the carnival it never ends
Down in Rio, we'll find a perfect world in Rioâ?¦ again
Down in Rio, where the women still love their men

Well Johnny, it's two in the mornin'
Don't you think, it's time we should go
Back to our millions of records we love
Back to our sad little homes
That was the last time I saw him
Never, no never no more
I wonder did Jesus, came to redeem him
Save poor Johnny's ol' soul
I wonder did Jesus, come to redeem him
Save poor Johnny's ol' soul

Leave me to die in the wreckage
As soon as it burns, I'll be gone
I'm goin' back to Sentimental Johnny (what for?)
To take in all I can (once more!)
To take in all I can (once more!)
