I recorded this on my uncle?s 1930s Squareneck National Resonator, and I play it live on
Asher Teardrop Weissenborn hallowneck. I tune this song to Open D? DADF#AD (low to
I play it lap-slide style, but it can be played regular or bottleneck syle as well.

Born again on a island of sale
He lived there six months
too long Only ten out of jail
He looked at me his eyes were haggard and pale
His skin was tarnished and torn
just like a rusted old nail
Well some people pass through
this world with no pain
But Johnny mingled in its
company again and again
He said he wanted to see
paradise and travel so far
All he'd seen of it was standing
behind' those ugly prison bars

[D]So many good pe[F]ople they come good [C]people they come,
from a b[G]roken road
[D]So many good pe[F]ople they come, good p[C]eople they come they
come an[G]d they go
(verse 2)
Johnny hailed from the city of thieves
He'd cut his teeth down backwards alleys since 1973
He said he'd had trouble run and that was easy to see
He traveled East to West didn't miss a single penitentiary
From the Bronx over to Queen's down South Jersey
I-95 to West Virginia well they caught up in Cincinnati
Crossed the Mason Dixon border, Kansas City, Oklahoma
The Devil on the shoulder of a good hearted man
(Chorus 2)
[D]So many good pe[F]ople they come good [C]people they come,
from a b[G]roken road
[D]So many good pe[F]ople they come, good p[C]eople they come they
come an[G]d they go
[D]Woah' can you ou[F]t-run the weight of [C]the world,
the weight of the wo[G]rld when it's holding you down?
[D]Woah can you out-[F]last the pain of the [C]fall, the pain of
the fall[G] when you fall to the ground?
