Hank Locklin – Johnny My Love (grandma's Diary) lyrics

(Johnny my love Johnny my love Johnny my love Johnny my love)
While looking through an old trunk as kids we'd all times do
We found a yellow notebook that was nearly torn in two
That book was grandma's diary her name was written clear
And on the first old tattered page we found these words so dear
Johnny my love Johnny my love you make the whole world shine
You make the whole world shine for me cause you're my Johnny my love

We brought grandma's old diary to show to mom and dad
The way they started crying well it really made us sad
And when they started singing the words we'd seen before
I'll never hear a song so sweet in a million years or more
Johnny my love...
Cause you're my Johnny my love cause you're my Johnny my love
