The Letter That Johnny Walker Read Submit Correct Lyrics

Johnny Walker sat at a table in a bar
Minding his own affairs
Drinking his namesake over the rocks
He was drunk, too drunk to care

When a girl from the bar walked up beside him
And this is what she said
She said, a woman came by with a letter for you
And this is what the letter said

Dear John, please, Johnny, please come home
I need your love and the kids, they gotta be fed
And John, if you don't hurry back I'll be gone
Yes, that's what the letter said
The letter that Johnny Walker read

Then John, he got up from the table
Slowly, so slowly he walked outside
He was thinking of his wife and little children back at home
And how his drinking had ruined their lives

Then John, he stared off, off into that street light
And a vision filled his poor, poor heart with dread
For you see folks it was him lying drunk there in that gutter
Clutching in his little own hand, the letter that Johnny Walker read
And this is what it said

Dear John, please, Johnny, please come home
I need your love and the kids, they gotta be fed
And John, if you don't hurry back I'll be gone
Yes, that's what the letter said
The letter that Johnny Walker read

Dear John, please, Johnny, please come home
I need your love and the kids, they gotta be fed
And John, if you don't hurry back I'll be gone
Yes, that's what the letter said
The letter that Johnny Walker read

Yes, that's what the letter said
The letter that Johnny Walker read
Yes, that's what the letter said
The letter that Johnny Walker read
