Johnson's Love
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


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

And some people claim they still hear him call her name
Hey hey Maureen
Swear they hear it just that plain
Deep in the night or sometimes right at dawn
See his body died some years ago
But around here Mr. Johnson's love lives on

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

Some people claim they still hear him call her name
Hey hey Maureen
Swear they hear it just that plain
Deep in the night or sometimes right at dawn
See his body died some years ago
But around here Mr. Johnson's Love lives on

Sissy Thompson said she'd seen him
Late that night on Shelby Road
About a mile from there they found him
Seems he died out in the snow
I hear'd the preacher at the service
Say from love he's finally free
But I say love it knows no season
It haunts the soul eternally

Some people claim they still hear him call her name
Hey hey Maureen
Swear they hear it just that plain
Deep in the night or sometimes right at dawn
See his body died some years ago
But around here Mr. Johnson's love lives on

Yes his body died some years ago
But around here Mr. Johnson's love lives on

Dwight Yoakam has more talent in his pinky finger than all of today's jokes in Nashville combined,and don't even get me started on what I think about Carrie Underwood,Taylor Swift,& Sugarland.

:) well, ironically I used to hate this kind of country music.... in my house, my mom would blare stars such as Dwight, Lefty, Hank, and George Jones... I would always turn my Walkman up (LOL) and roll my eyes... Now, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the REAL country music... It's nice to know so many (like you) do as well... :)
