Flogging Molly - Sentimental Johnny lyrics

I'm going back to sentimental Johnny
'Cause sentimental Johnny is your man
Sunshine or rain, the man's on his game
The chairman of the boards

He said Jesus, he walks on water
Not like us, he must have been sober
Marching away, on top of his lake
The savior of all souls

Leave me to die in the wreckage
As soon as it burns I'll be gone
I'm going back to sentimental Johnny
What for? To take in all I can

What for? To take in all I can
Once more!

Well, it was back in good old '57
When Johnny met Elvis in Memphis
Rocking on Sun, where it all begun
A story yet to end

And by this time we're drinking up a fever
And in me he has a true believer
If only I could, just for one word
To live it all again

Leave me to die in the wreckage
As soon as it burns I'll be gone
I'm going back to sentimental Johnny
What for? To take in all I can

What for? To take in all I can

Rio, why don't you meet me down in Rio again?
Down in Rio, the carnival it never ends
Down in Rio, we'll find a perfect world in Rio again
Down in Rio, where the women still love their men

Well, Johnny, it's two in the morning
Don't you think it's time we should go?
Back to our millions of records we love
Back to our sad little homes

That was the last that I saw him
Never, no never, no more
I wonder, did Jesus come to redeem him?
Save poor Johnny's old soul

I wonder, did Jesus come to redeem him?
Save poor Johnny's old soul

Leave me to die in the wreckage
As soon as it burns I'll be gone
I'm going back to sentimental Johnny
What for? To take in all I can

What for? To take in all I can
Once more, to take in all I can
Once more!
