Testo johnny was - bob marley

Woman hold her head and cry

Cause her son had been shot down in the street and died

From a stray bullet



Woman hold her head and cry

Accompanying her was a passer-by

Who saw the woman cry



Wondering can she work it out

Now she knows that the wages of sin is death

The gift of God is life



Oh
oh
oh
oh

Johnny was a good man

oh yeah



Woman hold her head and cry

Cause her son had been shot down in the street and died

Just because of the system



Woman hold her head and cry

Comforting her I was passing by

And I saw the woman cry



She cried
oh
oh
oh
oh

Johnny was a good man

Never did a thing wrong



Take it down



Johnny went out on a Saturday night

Never hurt anybody never started no bar room fight

Johnny never did nobody no wrong

Never hurt anybody never hurt anybody

Johnny was a good man

Johnny
Johnny
Johnny...



Johnny was a good man

(Repeat)



In a top floor flat in the middle of the night

There's a man with rifle and Johnny in his sight


I said oh no
we can't let that kind of thing happen here no more

Oh no

Johnny
Johnny
Johnny...



A single shot rings out in a Belfast night and I said oh

Johnny was a good man



Can a woman's tender care

Cease towards the child she bears



Johnny (Repeat
