Johnson's Love  Dwight Yoakam

Dwight Yoakam - Johnson's Love (Acoustic)
This song has a very distinctive picking style, which I have tabbed out at the
end of the lyrics. Use it as a guide, because I haven't got it exactly the same
as the recording, but it works well enough!
***********************************************************************
*INTRO*
Verse 1
 
 --------

N/C C
She had left him lost and broken,
[D] Like no other had be[G]fore.[C] [G]
Now his heart was just a [C]token,
[D] Of the pain it had en[G]dured.[C] [G]
And his memories were [C]clouded,
[D] With all the hurtful things she'd sa[G]id.[C] [G]
Yes, for all intent and [C]purpose,
[D] He might just as well been dea[G]d.[C] [G]
Chorus
 
 -------

And some people [D]claim they still [C]hear him call her n[G]ame.[C] [G]
Hey, hey Mau[D]reen...swear they [C]hear it just that pl[G]ain.[C] [G]
Deep in the [D]night, lord and [C]sometimes right at [G]dawn.[C] [G]
You see his [C]body died some years ago but around [D]here,
Mr Johnson's love lives [G]on.[C] [G]
Verse 2
 
 --------

He seemed far away and [C]distant,
[D] With that cold and silent [G]stare[C].[G]
Never moving never s[C]peaking,
[D] And just barely breathing ai[G]r.[C] [G]
No-one really knew the [C]reason,
[D] And who can judge her right or wr[G]ong.[C] [G]
The only true and solemn [C]fact is...
[D] The man we'd known was all but g[G]one.[C] [G]
*CHORUS*
Verse 3
 
 --------

Sissy Thompson said she'd [C]seen him,
[D] Late that night on Shelby [G]Road.[C] [G]
About a mile from there they [C]found him,
[D] It seems he'd died out in the sno[G]w.[C] [G]
I heard the preacher at the [C]service,
[D] Say from love he's finally fre[G]e.[C] [G]
But I say love it knows no [C]seasons,
[D] It haunts the soul eternal[G]ly.[C] [G]
*CHORUS*
Yeah, his [C]body died some years ago but around [D]here,
Mr Johnson's love lives o[G]n. [C] [G] [C] [G] [C] [G]
