Johnny  by  Violent Femmes
--------------------------

This is off  Add It Up  and it's brilliant and very simple.
It is based around only two chords, D & Em, with kinda improvised
strumming and lots of bass.

Em     D     Em     D   (Alternating the whole time, a measure each)

Oh Johnny, do you miss, your mother,
do you you miss, your father.
Oh and Johnny do you miss me?

I was so hungry I just wanted to attack,
and I was so hungry, ah let me know I never, I never look back.

Oh Johnny, sometimes I wonder, sometimes I wonder,
And I, And I, wonder what it's like to die,
Ah now I know, I see coulda been a star.
I coulda, I coulda been a wit.
I tell you something else right now, right now John,
we could have been, sailing along, on our ship.

Is this ring that he wore,
it's just another thing that he wore,
But there is something about this ring,
that I, I, I just can't ignore.
I sorta keep it, but I don't know what for.

Oh Johnny, do you miss all the old ladies,
do you miss all of the crazies, and ahh Johnny,
do miss me?

Ahh Johnny do you miss, your mother,
do you miss, your father?
Ah Johnny there's, there is something I'd like to know,
And I, and I could you tell me John,
could you tell me what it's like to die?
Ah man, could you tell me what it's like to die?
Ah John, could you tell me what it's like to die?
tell me what's it like to die, Johnny, ahhhhhh,
can you tell me what it's like to die? Johnny, Johnny, Ahhhhhh,
can you tell me what it's like to die? Johnny, Johnny, Ahhhhhh,
can you tell me what it's like to die? Johnny, Johnny, Ahhhhhh,
can you tell me what it's like to die? Johnny, Johnny, Ahhhhhh,

I can't hear you I can't hear you Johnny, Johnny, Johnny, ahhhhhhh
can you tell me what it's like to die? Johnny, Johnny, Ahhhhhh,
can you tell me what it's like to die?


Ok, that was Johnny, put more Violent Femmes up here, and support this band,
because they bring ALL their equipment on the bus.
