Johnson's Love Lyrics

Artist: Dwight Yoakam
Album: Hillbilly Deluxe

(Dwight Yoakam)

She had left him lost and broken like no other had before
And now his heart was just a token of the pain it had endured
And his memories were clouded with all the hurtful things she'd said
Yes, for all intent and purpose he might just as well been dead

Chorus:
And some people claim they still hear him call he name
Hey, hey, Maureen, swear they hear it just that plain
Deep in the night and sometimes right at dawn
See, his body died some years ago
but around here Mr. Johnson's love lives on

He seemed far away and distant with that cold and silent stare
Never moving, never speaking and just barely breathing air
No one really knew her reason and who can judge her right or wrong
The only true and solemn fact is, the main we'd known was all but gone

Chorus:
And some people claim they still hear him call he name
Hey, hey, Maureen, swear they hear it just that plain
Deep in the night and sometimes right at dawn
See, his body died some years ago
but around here Mr. Johnson's love lives on

Sissy Thompson said she'd seen him late that night on Shelby Road
About a mile from there they found him it seems he'd died out in the snow
I hear'd the preacher at the service say fro love he's finally free
but I say love, it knows no season it haunts the soul eternally

Chorus:
And some people claim they still hear him call he name
Hey, hey, Maureen, swear they hear it just that plain
Deep in the night and sometimes right at dawn
Yeah, his body died some years ago
but around here Mr. Johnson's love lives on
Yes, his body died some years ago
but around here Mr. Johnson's love lives on

Its hard to believe that someone so young (he was at the time he wrote it) could write about such a true to life, haunting, painful life experience-one that captures the hopeless love and loss of a much older person
