​Johnny Boy

This song is by Melanie and appears on the album Affectionately Melanie (1969).

Johnny boy, my friend,
It is the end
Of the summertime.
In the wine,
In the tree:
You and me.
You'll recall all the tears.
I had fears.
You could not stop them from falling.
But you did, Johnny boy, my friend.
They're falling again!

Johnny boy, my friend,
Stop them again
For a lonely girl
In the world
Of the stone buildings
That would turn brown
If they were born
In the town
Where the trees are grown.
Johnny boy, I'm alone.
Please take me home!

Johnny boy, my friend,
Please hold my hand
In the middle of the night
When the world crashes with all its might.
Johnny boy, if you had pain
I would do the same.
Johnny boy, my friend,
You gotta help me again!

Johnny boy, my friend,
It is the end, it is the end
Of the summertime,
In the wine,
In the tree:
You and me.
You'll recall all the tears.
I had fears.
You couldn't stop from falling
But you did, Johnny boy, Johnny boy, my friend, my friend.
You gotta help me!
