Flogging Molly – Sentimental Johnny tab

Top o' the mornin to ye!  This is a marvelously energetic song by a marvelously
energetic band, so if your hand isn't worn out by the end of the song you're not
strumming fast enough.  Like all my other F.M. tabs, there are some parts here
(like the accordion solo) that really shouldn't be played on guitar, so blessed
is he who has an accordion, fiddle, or tin whistle player in his band.  Enjoy!

Verse 1: C I’m goin’ back to Sentimental Johnny G Cause Sentimental Johnny is your man Sunshine or rain, the man’s on his game C The chairman of the boards He says Jesus, he walks on water G Not like us, he must have been sober Marching away on top of his lake C The savior of all souls Chorus: (Gtr. 1 plays notes while Gtr. 2 plays chords)
