Johnson Boys

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

June Carter:
Johnson boys raised in the bushes
Didn’t know how to court a maid
Turned their backs and hid their faces
Helen and Anita: Sight of a pretty girl made ‘em ‘fraid
Sight of a pretty girl made ‘em ‘fraid

Johnson boys went a courting
Johnson boys they got beat
Tied their shoes with rawhide laces
H & A: Didn’t know where to put their feet
Didn’t know where to put their feet

Johnson boys went a hunting
Lost their dogs and went astray
Tore their clothes and scratched their faces
H & A: Didn’t get home till the break of day
Didn’t get home till the break of day

Johnson boys went to the city
A riding in a chevrolet
Come back home a broke and a walking
H & A: Had no money for to pay their way
Had no money for to pay their way
Had no money for to pay their way
Had no money for to pay their way
