  • Nobody knows
    The trouble you feel
    Nobody cares
    The feelin' is real

    Johnny,
    We're sorry,
    Won't you come on home
    We worry,
    Won't you come on
    What is wrong in my life
    I must get drunk every night
    Johnny,
    We're sorry

    Use the phone,
    Call your mom
    She's missing you badly,
    Missing her son

    Who do you know,
    Where will you stay
    Big city life
    Is not what they say

    Johnny,
    We're sorry,
    Won't you come on home
    We worry,
    Won't you come on
    What is wrong in my life
    That I must get drunk every night
    Johnny,
    We're sorry

    You'd better go,
    Everything's closed
    Can't find a room,
    Money's all blown
    Nowhere to sleep,
    Out in the cold
    Nothing to eat,
    Nowhere to go

    Johnny,
    We're sorry,
    Won't you come on home
    We worry,
    Won't you come on
    What is wrong in my life
    That I must get drunk every night
    Johnny,
    We're sorry
    Won't you come on home
    We worry,
    Won't you come on home
    Johnny
    Won't you come on homeWriter/s: DAVID STEELE, ROLAND LEE GIFT
