So when Johnny left home, ’t was his time to roam,
yeah he wanted to see the world!
We all thought he was insane, but we brought him to the train,
for Johnny it still was difficult!
But he held his head high, as we said our goodbyes,
a whistle blew, and we replied then:
Johnny, we hope to see you again
some day when your back to stay!

And I’ll bet we all looked pretty foolish,
as he left us there all standing clueless.
And that’s how the story ends,
except for Johnny cause his story only begins here!

Johnny went away, no he couldn’t stay,
stepped on-board a train, and wished us good day,
and then, Johnny was never seen again!
I heard he was in Asia, in trouble in Malaysia,
he hit some guy, who now has got amnesia.
At least that’s how the story is told,
Johnny is seeing the world!

But tell me Johnny did you ever plan on coming back,
to be drinking with your mates.
So when were old and grey, sitting in some café,
drinking and thinking about the day that:

Johnny went away, no he couldn’t stay,
stepped on-board a train, and wished us good day,
and then, Johnny was never seen again!
Got a postcard from somewhere, said they had no whiskey there,
he felt scared and alone, he missed his home.
But until this day, his whereabouts are still unknown!

Johnny went away, no he couldn’t stay,
he got on a train and wished us good day,
and then, Johnny was never seen again!
The last thing we heard was some trouble occurred,
but that might as well be just a fairytale.
We just hope, that this fat, sweaty, drunken, tattooed, Irish bastard,
he didn’t land his ass in jail!

(Free Johnny, free Johnny!)
