Me and Johnny Lee

Me and Johnny Lee-Chickenbone Slim-Copyright 2017
I didn’t see it coming
caught me on the chin
I woke up and she was gone
I guess this the end
another sleepless midnight
I’m as lonely as I can be
ever since she broke my heart
it’s down to me and Johnny Lee
I’m lonely and confused
morning sunlight hurts my head
my thoughts go round and round
about all the things that she said
another sleepless midnight
I’m as lonely as I can be
ever since she broke my heart
it’s down to me and Johnny Lee
When the house is cold and lonely
and you’re sitting there all alone
you sit and play the blues
and stare at your telephone
another sleepless midnight
I’m as lonely as I can be
ever since she broke my heart
it’s down to me and Johnny Lee
It’s a hard way to live
feeling bad all the time
It might leave you for a while
but you know it’s a bunch of jive
Your friends wonder if you’ll shake it
Your family worries when you don’t
You pray she comes back someday
But John Lee knows that she won’t
another sleepless midnight
I’m as lonely as I can be
ever since she broke my heart
it’s down to me and Johnny Lee
