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 To take in all I can (once more!) I'm goin' back to Sentimental Johnny (what for?) To take in all I can (once more!) When Johnny met Elvis in Memphis Well it was back in good ol' 57 Rockin' on sun Where it all begun A story yet to end And in me, he has a true believer If only I could, just for one word And by this time, we're drinkin' up a fever To live it all again To take in all I can (once more!) Leave me to die in the wreckage To take in all I can (once more!) As soon as it burns, I'll be gone I'm goin' back to Sentimental Johnny (what for?) Down in Rio, where the women still love their men Rio, why don't you meet me down in Rio: again Down in Rio, the carnival it never ends Down in Rio, we'll find a perfect world in Rio: again 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 Save poor Johnny's ol' soul I wonder did Jesus, come to redeem him As soon as it burns, I'll be gone Leave me to die in the wreckage To take in all I can (once more!) I'm goin' back to Sentimental Johnny (what for?) To take in all I can (once more!)
