Johnny Sunshine

Album: Exile In Guyville (1993)
  • You took the car
    It was my favorite one
    Little white Dart
    And drove it to Idaho
    You took the horse
    It was a thoroughbred
    Saddled it up
    Out on the interstate
    You killed the cat
    Burned it in antifreeze
    Dumped in the trunk
    With the rest of the cattlefeed
    You took the house
    You went and changed the locks
    Now I am stuck
    Living out of a box

    You took the car
    It was my favorite one (I think I've been taken)
    Little white Dart
    And drove it to Idaho
    You took the horse (for everything I own)
    It was a thoroughbred
    Saddled it up
    Out on the interstate
    You killed the cat (I've been hurt so badly)
    Burned it in antifreeze
    Dumped in the trunk
    With the rest of the cattlefeed
    You took the house
    You went and changed the locks
    Now I am stuck
    Living out of a box

    You left me nothing
    You left me nothing
    Johnny Sunshine

    You left me nothing
    You left me nothing
    Johnny Sunshine

    You left me nothing (I think I've been taken)
    You left me nothing (for everything I own)
    Johnny Sunshine (I've been hurt so badly)

    You left me nothing (I'm alone, baby, I'm alone)
    You left me nothing (I'm alone, baby, I'm alone)
    Johnny Sunshine

    You left me nothing
    You left me nothing
    Johnny Sunshine

    You left me nothing
