                Dwight Yoakam - Johnson's Love (Acoustic)


This song has a very distinctive picking style, which I have tabbed out at the 
end of the lyrics. Use it as a guide, because I haven't got it exactly the same 
as the recording, but it works well enough!

***********************************************************************

*INTRO*

Verse 1
--------
N/C                       C   
She had left him lost and broken,
D                    G     C    G 
 Like no other had before.
                         C
Now his heart was just a token, 
D                     G      C    G
 Of the pain it had endured.
                      C       
And his memories were clouded, 
D                                    G      C    G 
 With all the hurtful things she'd said.
                        C
Yes, for all intent and purpose, 
D                              G      C    G
 He might just as well been dead.

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

Verse 2
--------
                       C   
He seemed far away and distant,
D                          G    C   G                        
 With that cold and silent stare.
                    C
Never moving never speaking,
D                            G    C   G
 And just barely breathing air.
                       C
No-one really knew the reason,
D                                 G    C   G 
 And who can judge her right or wrong.
                         C
The only true and solemn fact is...
D                                G    C   G
 The man we'd known was all but gone.


*CHORUS*


Verse 3
--------
                          C                         
Sissy Thompson said she'd seen him,
D                          G    C   G
 Late that night on Shelby Road.
                             C                  
About a mile from there they found him,
D                                 G     C   G
 It seems he'd died out in the snow.
                            C
I heard the preacher at the service,
D                              G    C   G
 Say from love he's finally free.
                           C
But I say love it knows no seasons,
D                          G    C   G   
 It haunts the soul eternally.


*CHORUS*

          C                                   D
Yeah, his body died some years ago but around here,
                         G    C   G    C   G    C   G
Mr Johnson's love lives on.
