Johnny Was Lyrics

Artist: Bob Marley


Woman hold her head and cry
Cause her son had been
Shot down in the street
And died
From a stray bullet

Woman hold her head and cry
Explaining to her was a passerby
Who saw the woman cry
Wondering how can she work it out,
Now she knows that the wages of sin is death
Gift of JAH is life
She cried...
Johnny was a goodman
Never did a thing wrong
(repeat)

Woman hold her head and cry
Cause her son had been
Shot down in the street
And died
Just because of the system

Woman hold her head and cry
Comforting her was a passerby
She complained, then she cry
Johnny was a goodman
Never did a thing wrong
(repeat)

Can a woman tender care
She cried...
Cease towards the child she bear
(repeat)
