  • Johnny Guitar Watson staring at me
    Riding on 3 wheels, a woman on his knee
    With a leg under the red dress I wish I could see
    Further North the warmth of lovin' lingering
    Now Johnny he be having lots of women
    Oh the reason he'd be smiling known to him

    On the left the girl in red so innocent
    Never sheds her clothes even when she goes to bed
    Yeah the type of girl responsible for original sin
    Can't help but wonder where and who she is
    Oh and the memory's always getting clearer
    First thirty years and more I've loved her so
    But now I need to know why she's with him

    And I sleep with the light on in case she comes
    And I sleep with the light on in case she,

    Recently as I was waiting on a dream
    She came to visit lost and lonely me
    Oh she leaned over the bed and with the lips above my head
    She asked if I had seen her Johnny
    Oh and I hide my disappointment cause for years I have been hoping
    Oh yeah I have been hoping that
    When she came that she would come for me

    Hey, hey,

    I'll hide my disappointment cause for years I have been hoping
    That when she came she'd be coming just for me,
    I'll hide my disappointment cause for years I have been hoping
    That when she came she'd be coming just for me,ah yeah!

    Aw yeah!
    Aw yeah!
