Sentimental Johnny Tab

   
Top o' the mornin to ye!  This is a marvelously energetic song by a marvelously
energetic band, so if your hand isn't worn out by the end of the song you're not
strumming fast enough.  Like all my other F.M. tabs, there are some parts here
(like the accordion solo) that really shouldn't be played on guitar, so blessed
is he who has an accordion, fiddle, or tin whistle player in his band.  Enjoy!

Verse 1:

           C
Iím goiní back to Sentimental Johnny
                                  G
Cause Sentimental Johnny is your man

Sunshine or rain, the manís on his game
                     C
The chairman of the boards

He says Jesus, he walks on water
                                G
Not like us, he must have been sober

Marching away on top of his lake
                   C
The savior of all souls

Chorus: (Gtr. 1 plays notes while Gtr. 2 plays chords)

 F                       C
Leave me to die in the wreckage
    F                        G
As soon as it burns Iíll be gone
           C
Iím goiní back to Sentimental Johnny (what for?)
    F      G      C
To take in all I can (what for?)
    F      G      C
To take in all I can (ONCE MORE!!!)


(Repeat intro)


Verse 2:

Well it was back in good ole Ď57
When Johnny met Elvis in Memphis
Rockiní on sun, where it all begun
A story yet to end

And by this time weíre drinkiní up a fever
And in me, he has a true believer
If only I could, just for one word
To live it all again

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge:

 F                                 C
Rio, why donít ya meet me down in Rio...  again
         F                         C
Down in Rio, the carnival it never ends
         F                                  C
Down in Rio, weíll find a perfect world in Rio...  again
         D                                     G
Down in Rio, where the women still love their men

Verse 3:

Well Johnny, itís two in the morniní
Donít you think itís time we should go?
Back to our millions of records we love
Back to our sad little homes

That was the last that I saw him
Never, no never no more
I wonder if Jesus came to redeem him
Save poor Johnnyís ole soul

I wonder if Jesus came to redeem him
Save poor Johnnyís ole soul
