Am		G	    D       Dsus	    F			
Old Miss Johnston lived all alone
                                     Am
On the sorry side of town

Am
Broke down cars and burglar bars

          G                            D         Dsus        F
On the windows and doors

                                           Am
In case danger comes around


Am
Sittin' in her yellow kitchen

G                           D       F             Am
Listenin' to bad news on a AM radio

Am
It used to be Louis Armstrong
G                                    D      Dsus    F

Then Martin Luther King

                                       Am                                  
Where did everybody go?


G                                             Am
Out the window where her garden was

G                              F                  Am    
It's not safe to go outside

                                G
Old Miss Johnston in the eye of the storm

F                                       Am
It was the safest place to hide


Am                                 G                                       D            F
Yeah life's a gamble for the broken and the weak

                                                             Am
Dealin' with the bangers and the drugs

Am
The whinos weave and amble

G                                               D        Dsus             F
And shuffle on down the street

                                           Am
Steerin' clear of all the thugs


G                                       Am
And now my city hangs her head in shame

G                                                      F              Am
You can't tell the truth from all the lies

                                                G
Everything changed forever and everything stayed the same

F                                                Am
On the night Miss Johnston died
