lyrics

So what became of Johnny? I've heard stories of his fate
Some say he hit the highway and that somehow he escaped
Or else the press gangs caught him, sent him to the killing fields
Perhaps he crashed and died whilst speeding in his automobile

He was never a stranger to a life spent on the run
His friends lived fast and died young, but his journey'd just begun
And no one knows for sure, but if he's still alive today
I'd bet somewhere old Johnny's rockin' out upon a stage

Well, I wonder where he is now - is he doing OK?
Does he still have the fire in his eyes?
I sure hope I will find out some day

Others say he wanders still until this very day
From town to town, still carrying that beat up guitar case
Still singing for the sinners, all the folks that God don't save
The lowlifes and the outlaws and the soldiers in their graves

So if one night you come across a man and his guitar
Sat playin' in the corner of some Mexicali bar
And folks swear that he sold his soul to Satan for his skill
Then maybe you will find out that old Johnny's with us still

Well, I wonder where he is now - is he doing OK?
Does he still have the fire in his eyes?
I sure hope I will find out some day
