lyrics

Johnny you told me not to come calling
I said Johnny I'm not just a fair-weather friend
I'm coming over gonna hold your hand

when I found you you were playing the blues
hanging over your porch with a bottle of
makers mark did you want me to take it from you

Johnny I wrote you a song
sweetest song I wrote for anyone
do you want me to play it for you

you curled up in your soft green chair
rocking back and forth with your hands clutching your hair
did you know how much I loved you right there

maybe it was the booze, maybe it was the song
maybe it was the truth, hit you too damn hard

but you locked yourself in your little room
crying over your daughters and your wedding band
did you want me to break down the door
break it down and save your drunken heart

maybe it was a ruse, maybe there was no gun
maybe it was for the bruise you left on my arm

maybe it was a ruse, maybe there was no gun
maybe it was for the bruise you left on my arm

when you found me, I was crying a stream
hiding out in my car thinkin' 'bout nine one one
did you want me to call 'em
did you want me to call someone

I remember then, thinking Johnny my friend
I'd do it over and over and over again
if you wanted me to, did you want me to
