The Letter that Johnny Walker Read - The Asleep at the Wheel

The Letter that Johnny Walker Read
Johnny Walker sat at a table in a bar, minding his own affairs 
Drinking his name sake's gold on the rocks, getting drunk, too drunk to care 
When a girl in the bar walked up his side and this is what she said 
She said, "A woman came by and left a letter for you", this is what the letter said 

"Dear John, please Johnny, please come home 
I need your love and the kids, they gotta be fed 
And John, if you don't hurry back, I'll be gone"

Yes, that's what the letter said 
The letter that Johnny Walker read 

Then John, he got up from the table, slowly he walked outside 
He was thinking of his wife and little children back home 
And how his drinking had ruined their lives 

Then John he staggered off into the street light 
And a vision filled his poor, poor heart with dread 
For it was him lying drunk there in the gutter 
Clutching in his hand the letter that Johnny Walker read 
And this is what it said 

"Dear John, please Johnny, please come home 
I need your love and the kids, they gotta be fed 
And John, if you don't hurry back I'll be gone"

Yes, that's what the letter said 
The letter that Johnny Walker read 

"Dear John, please Johnny, please come home 
I need your love and the kids, they gotta be fed"
