Johnson Boys

print
Johnson boys raised in the ashes
Didn’t know how to court a maid
Turn their backs and hide their faces
Sight of a pretty girl makes ’em afraid
Sight of a pretty girl makes ’em afraid
Sight of a pretty girl makes ’em afraid
Johnson boys went a-huntin’
Took two dogs and went astray
Tore their clothes and scratched their faces
Didn’t come home ’til the break of day
Didn’t come home ’til the break of day
Didn’t come home ’til the break of day
Johnson boys went a-courtin’
Coon creek girls so pretty and sweet
They couldn’t make no conversation
Didn’t know where to put their feet
Didn’t know where to put their feet
Didn’t know where to put their feet
