Written for my Grandfather on my mother's side. Johnny Winn was a guitar, banjo and ukulele player. That must have been where I got my guitar chops.
He gave me his Gibson tenor banjo right before he died. That is the instrument I'm using in this recording.

For Johnny

Doo doo doo doo...

Here comes Johnny's girl
the usual trouble, 
it's just a crazy world

but I'd like to be a fly on your electric guitar
try mighty hard not to fly away
and when you sing of hard times
always a smile
man, you had style
it all was worth while

Here comes Johnny's wife
you really done it this time
lightning strikes twice

But I'd like to be a chord on your banjo
chase you and your lady's blues away
the way you sing of hard times
wink and a smile
oozing with style
it all was worth while.

doo doo doo doo...
