lyrics

Poor Johnny broke up
With his girl the other day
Everything he’s got left
Is a hand full dollars to leave the city

Poor Johnny woke up
In a Motel the other day
Everything he remembers
Is the shadow of yesterday

When the moon stands high
And the jackals begin to cry
Everything falls asleep
When a hot day is done

Poor Johnny soaked up
A bottle of whiskey the other day
Everything he’s got from that
Is a headache and much more pain

Poor Johnny choked up
On a rope the other day
And when he thought he’d finnaly made it
It broke he fell down all the way

When the moon stands high
And the jackals begin to cry
Everything falls asleep
When a hot day is done
Only the wolfs keep on singing all night long

So poor Johnny tried to drown himself in alcohol, and as you know this wouldn’t work out so well. So in his delirium he decided to knot himself up on the ceiling. He took the rope, he found in the corner of his room, put it around his neck, stepped up this chair and jumped into uncertainness. Just to find himself down on the floor thinking: “Oh my god not even death wants me. What am i going to do?'” So he stands, up steps infront of the door and there is this old man singing to him.

Come
Come with me
I give you what you seek
I give you a lead
