Send Sentimental Johnny Ringtone to your Cell



I'm goin' back to sentimental Johnny
'Cause sentimental Johnny is your man
Sunshine or rain, the man's on his game
The chairman of the boards

He said, "Jesus, he walks on water
Not like us, he must have been sober
Marching away on top of his lake
The Savior of all souls"

Leave me to die in the wreckage
As soon as it burns, I'll be gone
I'm goin' back to sentimental Johnny
To take in all I can, to take in all I can
Once more

Well, it was back in good ol' 57
When Johnny met Elvis in Memphis
Rockin' on sun where it all begun
A story yet to end

And by this time, we're drinkin' up the fever
And in me, he has a true believer
If only I could, just for one word
To live it all again

Leave me to die in the wreckage
As soon as it burns, I'll be gone
I'm goin' back to sentimental Johnny
To take in all I can, to take in all I can

Rio, why don't you meet me down in Rio again
Down in Rio, the carnival, it never ends
Down in Rio, we'll find a perfect world in Rio again
Down in Rio, where the women still love their men

Well Johnny, it's two in the mornin'
Don't you think, it's time we should go
Back to our millions of records we love
Back to our sad little homes

That was the last time I saw him
Never, no, never, no more
I wonder did Jesus come to redeem him
Save poor Johnny's ol' soul
I wonder did Jesus come to redeem him
Save poor Johnny's ol' soul

Leave me to die in the wreckage
As soon as it burns, I'll be gone
I'm goin' back to sentimental Johnny
To take in all I can, to take in all I can
To take in all I can
Once more
