Well, lucky number seven passed me by
Lucky number seven called my name and passed on by
Well, he came back, don't you know with his brother six in tow
And that is how number thirteen wound up by my side

And that is how I got these Lonesome Johnny Blues
How I got these Lonesome Johnny Blues
Got the Lonesome Johnny Blues and there's nothing I can do
'Cept sing these sad old weary Lonesome Johnny Blues

Come on, let's sing

Grim Reaper, he pulled up into my drive, yes he did y'all
Grim Reaper pulled his little old Chevrolet, right up onto the goddamn drive
Said Johnny, I haven't come for you but I want someone who's dear to you
And the price you pay is to remain alive

And I'll stay here with these Lonesome Johnny Blues
Stay here with these Lonesome Johnny Blues
With the Lonesome Johnny Blues and there's nothing I can do
'Cept sing these sad old weary Lonesome Johnny Blues

Woah, no more trouble send him down the road, won't you please
No more trouble won't you beat him up, won't you send him down the road
Trouble dumped out the trash, ransacked the place for cash
And he wound up taking much more than I own

And he left me with these Lonesome Johnny Blues
Left me with these Lonesome Johnny Blues
With the Lonesome Johnny Blues and there's nothing I can do
'Cept sing these sad old weary Lonesome Johnny Blues

Johnny Blues
The sad old weary Lonesome Johnny Blues
Johnny Blues

The sad old weary Lonesome Johnny Blues

Songwriters
LOWERY, DAVID CHARLES/HICKMAN, JOHN
