[Intro]

Bm F#m Em A Em A Em A (2x)


[Verse 1]
Bm F#m Em AHave a seat and I'll tell you a tale
Em A Em AIt wasn't that long ago..
Bm F#m Em AAbout a guy who turned out to be a cheater got the heater
Em A Em ASo the story goes:
Bm F#m EmHe tried the playboy-thing on two friends
A Em A Em AThinking that they'd never know.
Bm F#m Em AThey say he got caught in a trap and it snapped
Em A Em AHe's not around anymore...
[Chorus] Poor Johnny,
D F#mHe came home looking cool one day,
Bm GJust wasn't lucky to come out that way
D F#mOnce from the left... then from the right
Bm G AThey took him down, late that night.
[Verse 2]
Bm F#m Em ANow everyone in town knew he always played around
Em A Em ABut not a word was said.
Bm F#mAll the money and the clothes,
Em A Em A Em AAnd the cars that he drove just kept his ego fed.
Bm F#m Em ATo his friends he was king, cause he thought of everything
Em A Em AExcept his number one.
Bm F#m Em AShe had the kids and the house, while he was always out
Em A Em ALeaving his homework undone.
[Chorus] Poor Johnny,
D F#mHe came home looking cool one day,
Bm GJust wasn't lucky to come out that way
D F#mOnce from the left... then from the right
Bm G AThey took him down, late that night.
[Verse 3]
A F#mThen one day his luck ran out.
Bm F#mWhen number two found a number and called his house.
A F#mWord on the street is that they talked all night
A7They had to teach him a lesson,
A7They had to make things right.
[Chorus] Poor Johnny,
D F#mHe came home looking cool one day,
Bm GJust wasn't lucky to come out that way
D F#mOnce from the left... then from the right
Bm G AThey took him down, late that night.
