lyrics

Sitting below the old tree
You could see Johnny Was
He's never thinking about tomorrow
Smoking with his weeping willow
He was an old boy
Johnny left his wife at home
Johnny Was, a mad man, Johnny
Johnny's falling

He trailed his bag for sleeping by the river
Walking all the night with a heavy heart
He said he didn't care about his family.
Johnny Was, madness and despair
Johnny Was, Johnny Was...

He pilled a thousand pebbles
To mark the time which passes
Johnny didn't drop a single tear
This was the life that Johnny wanted
Johnny drowned all his pictures
To forget his baby son
'Cause he didn't want to drop a tear
He didn't want to feel pain
Johnny was, that's his name
Johnny Was not to blame
One gave him his strange name
To his madness

He trailed his bag for sleeping by the river
Walking all the night with a heavy heart
He said he didn't care about his family.
Johnny Was, madness and despair
Johnny Was not to blame
Johnny felt all the pain
Johnny was then became
Johnny was just insane
And he walked in the rain
And never came back again

He trailed his bag for sleeping by the river
Walking all the night with a heavy heart
He said he didn't care about his family.
Johnny Was, madness and despair
Johnny Was, Johnny Was….
