JOHNNY BYE BYE Lyrics

Artist: Bruce Springsteen
Album: Tracks

Well she drew out all her money from the Southern Trust
And put her little boy on the Greyhound Bus
Leaving Memphis with a guitar in his hand
With a one way ticket to the Promised Land
Hey little girl with the red dress on
There's party tonight down in Memphis down
I'll be going down there if you need a ride
The man on the radio says Elvis Presley's died

We drove to Memphis the sky was hard and black
Up over the ridge came a white Cadillac
They drawed out all his money and they laid him in the back
A woman cried from the roadside "Oh he's gone, he's gone"
They found him slumped up against the drain
With a whole lotta trouble running through his veins

Bye bye Johnny
Johnny bye Bye
You didn't have to die
You didn't have to die

(All aboard!
Train I ride...
Sixteen coaches long)

JUST LIKE A WOMAN (Bob Dylan/Bob Dylan)

Nobody feels any pain
Tonight as I stand inside the rain
Everybody knows
That baby has got me closed
But lately I see her ribbons and her bows
Have fallen from her curls

She takes just like a woman, yes she does
She makes love just like a woman, yes she does
And she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl

Queen Mary she's my friend
Yes I believe I'll go see her again
Nobody has to guess
That baby can't be blessed
'Till she finally sees
That she's like all the rest
With her fog her amphetamine and her pearls

It was raining from the first
And I was dying there of thirst
So I came in here
And your long time curse hurts
But what's worse
Is this pain in here
I can't stay in here
Ain't it clear that I just can't fit
Yes I believe it's for us to quit
When we meet again introduced as friends
Please don't let on that you knew me when
I was hungry and it was your world

Ah you fake just like a woman, yes you do
You make love just like a woman, yes you do
And you ache just like a woman
But you break just like a little girl
