The Letter That Johnny Walker Read

[G]Johnny Walker sat at a table in a bar
[D7]Minding his own affairs
[C]Drinking his namesake over the [D7]rocks

He was drunk too drunk to care

When a [G]girl from the bar walked up beside him
And [D7]this is what she said
She said a [C]woman came by with a [D7]letter for you
And this is what the letter [G]said

Dear John please Johnny please come [D7]home   
I need your love and the kids they gotta be [G]fed  
And John if you don't hurry back I'll be [D7]gone   

Yes that's what the letter said
The letter that Johnny Walker [G]read

Then John he got up from the [D7]table
[C]Slowly so slowly he walked [D7]outside
He was [G]thinking of his wife and little [D7]children back at home
And [C]how his drinking had [D7]ruined their [G]lives

Then John he stared off into that [D7]street light
In a [C]vision filled his poor poor heart with [D7]dread
For you see [G]folks it was him lying drunk in the [D7]gutter
[C]Clutching in his hand the [D7]letter that Johnny Walker [G]read

And this is what it said

Dear John please Johnny please come [D7]home   
I need your love and the kids they gotta be [G]fed  
And John if you don't hurry back I'll be [D7]gone   

Yes that's what the letter said
The letter that Johnny Walker [G]read

Dear John please Johnny please come [D7]home   
I need your love and the kids they gotta be [G]fed  
And John if you don't hurry back I'll be [D7]gone   

Yes that's what the letter said
The letter that Johnny Walker [G]read

[D7]Yes that's what the letter said
The letter that Johnny Walker [G]read
[D7]Yes that's what the letter said
The letter that Johnny Walker [G]read
