Capo: 3rd fret
Verse 1:
From his a[D]rmy confessions of his mi[A]litary days
You still c[C]arry the shrapnel y[G]ou're shell-shocked and d[D]azed
[D/C#]Dear J[Bm]ohnny [A]have you lost your [G6]way
Or like de[C]nim and leather are you [Dm]fade[Am]d and f[Bb]rayed
Institute lackies with hot bourbon breath
White coats and needles Johnny like to scare you to death
Dear Johnny do you feel your best
When you're strung out at night on your morphine and meth
[F]Jackknife Johnny you're a floor moppin' [E]flunkie
[Eb]Tool of a [Bb]dagger's [G]drawn world[E]
[F]Jackknife Johnny them old vets gotta [E]hate you
For bringing home that [A]V.[E]C. [B]girl
[Eb]Jackknife Johnny [G]welcome to our [Gb]world
From the tone deaf hearing of the draft board game
You were washing cars down in Dallas when the holocaust came
Dear Johnny your excuse was lame Bb
All your friends sleep in boxes while you sleep in chains
Solo

Jackknife Johnny you're a bad jungle monkey
Tool of a dagger's drawn world
Jackknife Johnny them old vets gotta hate you
For bringing home that V.C. girl
Jackknife Johnny welcome to our world
Jackknife Johnny you're a floor moppin' flunkie
Tool of a dagger's drawn world
Jackknife Johnny them old vets gotta hate you
For bringing home that V.C. girl
Jackknife Johnny welcome to our world
Jackknife Johnny you're a bad jungle monkey
Tool of a dagger's drawn world
Jackknife Johnny them old vets gotta hate you
For bringing home that V.C. girl
Jackknife Johnny
