Gaither Drake – Johnny Don't Surf No More lyrics

The sun is hot, the waves are high
Hanging ten with all the guys 'cept Johnny
Johnny ain't on the shore
He don't go down Kokomo
Pitched a tent along skid row
Johnny don't surf no more

It doesn't seem so long ago
Me and Johnny and all the bros
Down at the water all riding on our boogie boards
We still hit the waves, but it ain't the same
No longer hearing Johnny's name
Johnny don't surf no more

Summer's almost over
But it seems like it's just begun
Surf City ain't been the same
Since Johnny's been on the run

He walks alone on the streets at night
Passes out with the morning light
Johnny don't surf no more
Hangs out with girls who ain't his type
'Cuz they don't mind when he hits his pipe
Johnny don't surf no more

No more surfin' safaris
Cruising in the GTO
Johnny sends word that he's sorry
No thanks, he don't want to go

Last night I slept on Venice Beach
The years gone by seemed out of reach
Since Johnny done closed the door
The sun came up but I'm so down
Wishing my buddy was still around
Johnny don't surf no more
Johnny don't surf no more
Johnny don't surf no more
