Well, John does some singin', they call him a star
He plays with a hillbilly band
He goes lots of places, picks his guitar
Old John ain't a home lovin' man
John's got a woman, he calls her his queen
He buys her them city made clothes
She's 'bout the sweetest that I've ever seen
There are some things that John never knows

When Johnny's out tourin' I'm out with his queen
Flashin' his money around
So If you look for me and I can't be seen
Well, you can figure that old John's back in town

When John's out a-tourin' I wear his best suit
Smoke up his four-bit cigars
I lie to his woman and wear out his boots
Chauffer his limosuine cars
When John's makin' money he keeps on the go
So if you should hear it around
Please buy one of his records or go see his show
Help me keep old John out of town

When Johnny's out tourin' I'm out with his queen
Flashin' his money around
So If you look for me and I can't be seen
Well, you can figure that old John's back in town
(you can figure that old John's back in town)
