I said, "Now buy a little groceries, and don't  spend no  more."Ê

But she gave ten dollars for a ten cent hatÊ
ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ

Then I bet ten more that if  she ever leftÊ
ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ

She'd come a-  crawlin' back to  meÊ

When I woke up this mornin' and I turned my headÊ
There wasn't a cotton pickin' thing on her side of the bedÊ
I found a little old note where her head belongedÊ
It said, "Dear John, honey, baby, I'm long gone."

When I heard a whistle blowin,' and the big wheels a-turnin'Ê
I was scared as I could beÊ
I put on my overalls and I headed to townÊ
Gonna bring her back with me.

I asked the man down at the station if he'd seen her thereÊ
I told him all about her pretty eyes and long, blonde hair
He spit his tobacco, said, "I'll be dad blamedÊ
I believe I did see her leavin' on the east bound train."

I bought a round trip ticket on the east bound trainÊ
I was broke as I could beÊ
But when I come back, gotta buy another ticketÊ
Gotta bring her back with me.

Well, I got off the train somewhere in ArkansasÊ
And I worked up the guts to call my Mother-In-LawÊ
She said, "I'll tell you where she is, if you act right."Ê
"She's workin' four to twelve at Trucker's World tonight."

When I walked in she saw me, and she took off her apronÊ
And she grabbed her goin' home hatÊ
She bought a ticket with her tipsÊ
And now we're curled up on the sofa,Ê
me and her....and that mean eyed cat

Miss you Johnny...

Anyone who knows Luther's part (Intro/Solo) is welcome to add, as I havent perfected it yet.
