Papa Johnny Road
Music transcribed by: Scott Holcomb
     G
Down Poppie Johnny Road
Nobody hears your name
Life that I was lovin'
                          C
Like stealin' a ride on a train
                        G
Wanna steal a ride on a train

G
Crawlin' in the dirt all night
I guess this is a place
Mule bones lashed to a dead oak tree
                         C
The settle deeper in the rain
                     G
Settle deeper in the rain

Em                    Am          G
Hold me tight, flying through the air
Em                        C      Am
Hold on strong, and we're almost there
Em                 Am         F
Laugh so hard, the devil gets scared
Em         G         C       F         G
   I got a real good mind to beat your senseless

G
Best to count your blessing child
The sun's not too hot today
Like to get to church before
                           C
Oh, before this old jacket fades
                     G
Take us right to the shade

           G
That's the end of Poppie Johnny Road
Old blindie cures your misery
Give her five dollars, boy
                    C
Oh, and a reason to believe
            G
A reason to believe

Em                    Am          G
Hold me tight, flying through the air
Em                       C      Am
Coy dogs calling, we're almost there
Em                    Am          F
Laugh so hard and the devil's all scared
Em         G         C       F         G
   I got a real good mind to beat you senseless

Down Poppie Johnny Road
Nobody hears your name
The life that I love
                          C
Like stealin' a ride on a train
                      G
Oh, steal a ride on a train

       G
At the end of Poppie Johnny Road
Old blindie cures your misery
Just get five dollars there
                C
And a reason to believe
            G
A reason to believe

Em                    Am          G
Hold me tight, flying through the air
Em                       C      Am
Coy dogs calling, we're almost there
Em                      Am         F
Laughed so hard and the devil gets scared
Em         G         C        F        G
   I got a real good mind, to beat you senseless

G         C         F
  I got a real good mind
G
Senseless
G         C         F
  I got a real good mind
G
Senseless
G         C         F
  I got a real good mind
G
Senseless
G         C    F    G
  I got a real good mind
