Johnson's Love

This song is by Dwight Yoakam and appears on the album Hillbilly Deluxe (1987) and on the album Dwightyoakamacoustic.net (2000).

She had left him lost and broken
Like no other had before
And now his heart was just a token
Of the pain it had endured
And his memories were clouded
With all the hurtful things she'd said
Yes, for all intent and purpose
He might just as well been dead.

And some people claim they still hear him call her name
Hey, hey, Maureen, swear they hear it just that plain
Deep in the night and sometimes right at dawn
See, his body died some years ago
But around here Mr. Johnson's love lives on.

He seemed far away and distant
With that cold and silent stare
Never moving, never speaking
And just barely breathing air.

No one really knew her reason
And who can judge her right or wrong
The only true and solemn fact is,
The man we'd known was all but gone.

And some people claim they still hear him call he name
Hey, hey, Maureen, swear they hear it just that plain
Deep in the night and sometimes right at dawn
See, his body died some years ago
But around here Mr. Johnson's love lives on.

Sissy Thompson said she'd seen him
Late that night on Shelby Road
About a mile from there they found him
It seems he'd died out in the snow.

I hear'd the preacher at the service
Say from love he's finally free
But I say love, it knows no season
It haunts the soul eternally.

And some people claim they still hear him call he name
Hey, hey, Maureen, swear they hear it just that plain
Deep in the night and sometimes right at dawn
Yeah, his body died some years ago
But around here Mr. Johnson's love lives on.

Yes, his body died some years ago
But around here Mr. Johnson's love lives on...
